End of school year fun

A couple of weeks ago, we got together with some friends for a Titanic learning day in anticipation of visiting the Titanic Museum Attraction in Pigeon Forge.  During the school year, they have a great homeschool discount.  ($10.50 for one teacher, $9.00 per student with proof of homeschooling)   Our learning day consisted of various activities on morse code, designing a poster with a scripture verse, and watching several educational videos. 

Then, the big day!  We called a couple of days ahead of time to book our tour, so we could go in at the same time.  There were no crowds at 11 AM on a Thursday.  It was a wonderful time!  Michael was in a stroller the last time we were there and I can't say I remember much about our tour.  They have added an individual audio tour component that really helps keep younger kids interested and engaged.  We also did the scavenger hunt provided on their website. 

Daniel joined his first flute ensemble this school year and they concluded their performance schedule with an appearance at the Rock to Bach Festival in Oak Ridge.  

Our last 4-H meeting of the year involved circle and square dancing...

Michael is still doing great at karate and making lots of friends...

And I'm sitting here wondering why I feel so tired at the end of this fun, yet busy week.
