Fun Fridays: Stimpson Shell Museum Fieldtrip


Stimpson Shell Museum in Loudon, TN



Over 2000 different kind of shells...
























Some of Michael's favorites...



After about an hour in the museum, we took a walk around downtown Loudon and found these cool murals.  


and a caboose...




Sidewalk card game...


 

Comings and Goings

Michael has been working on this game for MONTHS and we finally had a time where we were all available to play together.  He has done more cool changes on it since these pictures were taken. 


A couple of weeks ago, Michael took a week to work solely on 4-H projects:  speech research, meetings, Clover Bowl and Wildlife Judging study, poster contest entry brainstorming,  TN Agricultural Literacy week video making, two presentations on his project work--Wildlife, Forestry and Fisheries.

Beauty

I've been reminded of the beauty of God's creation this past week especially.  Not just reminded that it exists, but that we have to get outside to SEE it.  To truly see it.  We have to get our heads out of our phones and computers to open our eyes to the heavens declaring the glory of God!  









I spent this afternoon doing my grocery shopping while Daniel was in class.  It was a marathon trip because I dropped him off at 12:30 and he wasn't done until 4.  That was quite a long time to be in town and I was pretty tired after  shopping.  BUT I was rewarded with those beautiful fall colors and the sun beaming down on my face, the warm temperatures and the quiet stillness of a few moments waiting...soaking in the beauty.
