A fun fieldtrip

This last week proved to be a very diligent week...which is a very rewarding feeling! So at the end of the week, we were ready to take off on a fun fieldtrip to the Chickamauga Battlefield with lots of other homeschooling friends and their moms. Although it was raining, we went outside to see a firing demonstration and then back inside to see the new movie that is now is a wonderful description of how the south and north fought their local battles here in the Chattanooga area, and the national park's new theatre at the battlefield is really impressive!

After the movie presentation, the ranger'ess gave a really informative lecture on a day in the life of a soldier and then we spent quite some time walking through the exhibits and checking out the giftshop. It was a cold, rainy day, but we thoroughly enjoyed ending our week with a 'bang'!
