|So random. But they are fascinated!|
After that we drove a couple blocks over and visited the State Capitol. Primus is going into 6th grade and Secundus is going into 4th grade. I always meant to make a trip to the capital when Primus was studying California history, but it just never happened. This was a great trip. We all had a lot of fun. And while the tour was long and a little boring for children, I think the girls learned a lot and the boys survived without being too distracting to the other people in the group. I came home with lots of brochures full of info to supplement Secundus' CA history study this fall.
|Secundus snapped this picture of the bear statue that sits in front of the Governor's office. Apparently his nickname is "Bacteria Bear" because everyone who visits the capital touches it.|
Summer is a great time for sneaky field trips!
