We spent Friday at the National Building Museum for a homeschool day. This was the first year that all three kids were able to take classes and Ruth was very excited to be “all by herself” in class. She learned about patterns and houses (and made a house that was very her: mostly purple). David took a class in architecture and John built a geodesic dome. John and David both took “engineering egg drop” where they attempted to design a container that an egg could survive a fall from the very high second floor of the museum.

We also had a lot of fun in the Play Work Build exhibit. If you are in the area I’d highly recommend it. All in all, a good day.
