Our Trip to the State Museum

Last week I volunteered to chaperon my daughter's field trip to the Indiana State Museum.  I was a bit nervous about having a group of hyper 5th graders to look after but I was looking forward to viewing some of the art work and spending time with my daughter.

The first 2 hours were left to us to explore the museum. We went all over. It was interesting seeing some of the exhibits. Especially, the exhibit dedicated to the 90's! That hit me hard! They had a big-wheel on display and my kid just looked at me and said, "You rode one of those"? I thought, "oh goodness".

I didn't think I was old but now I guess I am. After we finished looking at "old stuff" we headed to the art room. They had some beautiful paintings on display. Below are a few of my favorites.

What a good combination, Christmas and artwork.
