Yesterday, I went on the 6th-grade field trip with my oldest son. We saw this:
|Statue of Liberty|
|Rebuilding the World Trade Center|
|King Henry VIII's armor|
What really struck me about the knights' armor is they know who owned some of it and the story about how and why it happened to be made. Though most of it was from the 1500s, it's labelled and well preserved. They have things in the museum from before Christ. The Greek and Roman section and the Egyptian section are amazing. When I saw the knights' armor, after seeing a B.C. chariot, it really made the whole medieval age seem not that long ago. In the history of the world, it was just a blink of an eye.
Other than trips to the city, we've been busy with lacrosse, scouts and everything else that goes with the end of the school year. It's approaching fast! I can't believe another year has gone by. Where does the time go?
