last week i joined hanna in old st. charles for a field trip with her school. this is the lewis and clark museum on the st. charles riverfront. yes, the water is RIGHT up to the foundation of the building.
before we actually hit the museum, we walked along main street. it's not really a great area for 10 year olds. lots of antique shops, including one that was called the popcorn shoppe. so, we settled on ice cream before lunch. then we had lunch.
the presentation at the museum was great. i'm a big history buff and i really enjoy it. hanna's class has been studying lewis and clark, so this trip was the culmination of those studies. afterward, they visited the first capital building.
