Vacation---Something Old and Something New

Fresh off of vacation--I thought I would focus today on somethings that helped us during our vacation time

Something Old
I've had this book on my shelf for over a year, and I've read it here and there.  I grabbed it before we left last week not knowing what I would do with it.   On the road I asked one of the kids to pick a random page and read it aloud.  It became our creative exercise for the morning/afternoon.  I'm going to blog about this more this week.  But the kids actually enjoyed these exercises and it passed the time on the road with a few good laughs and some even more good ideas. Try this on your next road trip!

Something New
Exlpora! Ideas You Can Touch   We spent most of Friday morning and afternoon at this hands on Museum in Albuquerque. If you are ever in the area--go.  The kids were hesitant at first, but they soon warmed to the hands on activities.  Even my 15 year old got into the act with the building of a "house" with PVC pipe (more pictures on this later in the week).   We always try to find a hands on project for us to do when we are on vacation. (like our tile projects from 2006--you can see them here)
