We recently went to the Tellus Museum in Cartersville on a GCA field trip. It was great! We went with another family we know from church, so we had a bunch of kids:
Several months ago, Catherine and I made a list of where she wanted to go on a field trip. One of her ideas was "the planet Mars." This was not simply an idea for her; she was adamant about this field trip. I tried to explain to her that we could not go to Mars because it was too far. She suggested we get a rocket ship. I told her that people cannot simply buy rocket ships and that she could go on a field trip to Mars when she grew up. This seemed to silence her and we have not discussed it since.
On the way home from Tellus, she told us "my dream has finally come true!" I asked what she meant and she said "we went on a field trip to Mars!"
A few weeks after the trip, Catherine told me "it is so sad to me that we didn't get to visit Uranus. I want to go to all of the planets." I am continuously shocked at how real things can seem to the girls, as well as how much she remembers things.
We had a great time at Tellus!
