We started out the day at the Wisconsin Institute for Discovery, where we met with other homeschoolers for a tour.bring together scientists and researchers from a broad spectrum of disciplines, such as the arts, humanities, social sciences, education, business and law" and to "promote dialogue as a fertile crossroads for ideas among diverse parts of UW–Madison and the larger community."
We had packed a lunch and ate in the car on the way to Camille's pottery class. We had a few extra minutes to spare so we followed a sign that said "rustic road" and saw these cute little miniature ponies (and went over a one-lane bridge). Oh yeah, and saw two cranes in flight, at least I think they were cranes. Don't you love it when a spur of the moment side trip is so fun? (We also shouted woo-hoo in unison at the top of each hill, no matter how small...)
Despite all of Sylvia's best sneaking efforts, she wasn't able to catch a chicken while waiting for Camille's pottery class to end, but we did get to see 40 2-week old chicks in their brooder (sorry, I didn't take any pictures).
Then we finished a lovely day with a good meal and good company at our friends' house. Camille read to the younger girls in some of the quieter moments, and much exuberant fun was had by all. A very satisfactory day, I would say. And because I can't help myself, I'll top off the night with a happy baby Ayla photo.
