Fun Day at the Science Museum (got to squish some pennies!)

I hope to post pictures soon, but just had to say that we had a blast at the free Homeschool Day at the Maryland Science Center in Baltimore. Drove up with Kathi and her kids and met up with Joanna who drove in from Ocean City and Dee Dee who came in from Frederick. The boys were bummed to not spend as much time with Jack (the got there a bit earlier then we did and we ended up on a different schedule).

We will definitely have to go back again…there was so much to do and the boys loved it. Especially the Newtonian Area and Kids Room. TONS of hands on stuff…the pictures are great.
It is late, so I won’t write too much, but I will say that I was at first bummed becuase I realized that I had left my penny bag (with my pre-1982 pennies) at home. But Kathi came to the rescue and between the two of us we were able to scrounge up enough so I could press all 8 pennies (plus two extra of the two crab designs so I could include them on my crab page). No extras for trading, but there is always next time.

About throwingmarshmallows

I am a homeschooling mom to two sweet, energetic boys although I am probably not exactly what you would expect (definitely NOT your stereotypical homeschooler, if there is really such a thing). I support progressive political causes (yes, liberals can and do homeschool!) and I have found a spiritual home in the Unitarian Universalist Church. I have no real idea of how I want to use this blog, but will probably focus on homeschooling, things that I am learning from my boys, personal thoughts and opinions and maybe some liberal politics thrown in, who knows!

    Sounds like fun. We save those trips for when it is too cold to go outside.

    I thought of you often this summer as I squished many pennies during our travels! I loved those machines as a kid and now I’m the mom so I have the power of the money… I squished pennies at every opportunity! I’m planning a visit to the penny museum, hopefully soon.
