Benjamin and I took the girls on an outing to the aquarium. This was a great field trip for all. It was a long day, but a great one. We went in the afternoon, so it wasn't nearly as crowded and we were able to spend as long as we wanted to in each exhibit.

We took them out for pizza after a quick stop at the gift shop.
We live in a beautiful world and the diversity of species continues to amaze me. I am grateful for the opportunity to visit places like this. I hope that the girls gained an appreciation for the beauty that exists under the seas of this amazing earth.

I gave each of the girls a canvas for art class and asked them to create an underwater scene of some sort. I was expecting an octopus or a turtle. I was surprised, when my daughter, obviously affected by our recent studies, decided to paint the Titanic wreckage. Her friend followed suit. They carefully painted windows and then mixed colors to make the perfect shade for the "rusticles." They also mixed paints to make the perfect shade of water. I love their attention to detail.
Here are a few more of her pieces of art.
