Photos from our Overnight to Greenville

We’ve returned from our trip to Greenville, SC. Here are a few photos from the goings on.  We forgot to take photos before the opera.  We enjoyed it.  The consensus was that Faust was not as good as Samson et Delilah.

The little guys went with Ms. ER to Restaurante Bergamo They tried caprese.  It was a little sketchy for the kids. They knew what tomatoes were and were nervous about eating them with balsamic vinegar and mozzarella. It wasn’t their favorite, but it was OK.  The mussels they had next were their favorite. Then they tried shrimp alfredo.  Alfredo sauce is a winner. Their desserts were wonderful.  BW exclaimed the next day, “If I could have licked the plate, I wanted to….The key lime pie was that good!”  They had worked so hard to get the proper table manners down.  BW held the doors and helped seat the ladies. They handled the mussel fork and the accompanying juices very well.  Being able to move from the primitive skills camp to the finest tables that a city might offer, is a skill set for which a Montessori child must strive.

They found out that new foods are worth the try.

The next morning as AV and JV slept in, every one else headed to Greenville Children’sMuseum.

When they arrived, the car building and racing section was a MESSSSSSS! Before they began building and racing their cars, they had to organize the materials! Oh yes!

Ms. JW's attack on the wind tunnel.

Ms. ER brought LR and AR to meet up with JV and AV who had picnicked at the Falls Park.  The kids found a snake, hopped rocks, and looked at the work of water all around them.
