Egyptian Stuff

Has it been so long since I blogged!?!?  We've been busy.
Our family went to the Egyptian museum in San Jose as a homeschooling fieldtrip for our 6th grade twins. And they each wrote a research paper complete with bibliography. They aren't at the in-text citation stage yet. We'll try that next.

Egyptians drank a lot of beer. On the tour of the simulated tomb, the docent asked us to identify the painting of some sort of beverage. When one of my kids answered, "beer" more than one person giggled. But she was right!

Enjoy some of the photos we took! I hope you too get a chance to visit. :)

My youngest daughters, twins- Daphne and Fiona (age 11) each created blogs to display the photos they take of cats, creations, and toy set-ups.

I invite you to take a look!
