a monday in motion from math to museum to market

We started the day early with math.  Moved seamlessly to language arts & reading.  From there we spent some time working on our Geological Time Scale.  A mostly-grown sister showed up between college classes and laundry to talk about The Hunger Games (the books not the movie) and to correct my pronunciation of Greek names :) The big news of the morning was we finished Ancient Greece.  So on to Rome via Natural Disasters Eyewitness DVD (it's a Pompeii thing).
 
Tree House Museum in Ogden, 30 or so minutes north of SLC
For geography and art we headed to the Tree House Museum. They have a special admissions price on Monday's.  We parted with 4 bucks and spent 2.5 hrs having fun. 

 I can't explain the double hoodie she is famous for but I like the flower.

Making a wish...
We can't go to the Tree House Museum without a trip to Farr's Ice Cream parlor.


And we can't go all week without bread fresh from the Stone Ground Bakery or without vegetables and Nutty Guys from the Food Co-op...so off to the markets we go.
