Yesterday was the day...

... that R's been waiting for.

Ancient Egypt has replaced WWII as the focus of her attention (obsession?), thank goodness, and she's been waiting since September for the homeschool group trip to see the King Tut exhibit at the Denver Art Museum.

She had been counting down the days for awhile, and was so excited the night before that she could hardly sleep...

But finally, it was December 8th and we headed into downtown Denver to see the exhibit.
She and her friend S, waiting to go into the museum.

There were no photos (or even sketches) allowed of any of the artifacts, of course. So the next pictures I have are of R and M after the tour (and the gift shop)... Isn't the huge wagon outside the window cool? It sits on the second floor roof of the north building in the museum complex.

And finally... our booty. I let the kids go a little wild in the gift shop. R had been waiting so long for this, and I wanted her to have some nice mementos
 of the day.

She especially loves the lotus necklace.
