Flying High

Tiny Talk Tuesday celebrates our children and their view of the world. They continually make us laugh and by recording their Tiny Talk we can focus on one of the many JOYS of parenting! If your kiddos made you laugh this week (don't they always), then feel free to share the humor! Check out more Tiny Talks with Mary.

This past Friday we went on our first "official" homeschooling field trip! Of course, I don't know that someone who does Pre-K work about once a week, but can count to 500 on his own "just cuz" really needs an excuse to go to the Cavanaugh Flight Museum.

We went with a great group of kids and was given a tour by a former Navy Coast Guard Captain. His jacket said he was from the class of 1955! He was very informative, but gave a little too much history for the crowd of early elementary students that were there, but we moms and the one dad that came along got a lot of information from him.

Our tour guide asked the kids if they had any questions, and of course That Other Kid spoke up with "Can I fly this plane?". He answered 'No, they are only for show in the museum and air shows now.' Then TOK asked another question (my personal favorite,) "Why??" At this point the tour guide moved on to other questions....

Here he is standing in front of a group of missiles....after he asked if they were "real". Of course they are real, but not "active"!

What a fun field trip! This picture is soooo cute! I could totally see my son asking the same thing, "but Why?"

What a GREAT field trip.

"But why..." Oh the cause of many a hair ripped from a mom's head :)
