This week we went to the Apple Store on the Upper West Side of NYC for a class on Digital Photography.  We had almost a dozen kids - all 5th grade & up.  Each child got a yellow Apple t-shirt and their own iPad to use.  The instructor was young, cool, and funny and really kept the kids interested in what was going on.  The kids took a bunch of pictures of themselves using all the crazy filters.  Then they opened up iMovie to piece a bunch of them together along with music, sound effects, and their own voices.  The class was 90 minutes long and afterwards the kids hung around the Apple store for another 1/2 hour playing on iPads.


Another field trip was the NBC Studios tour last week.  We met up with some hs friends the day before, ds slept over their house, and they met up with our hs group the following morning.  They visited the studio sets of a few TV shows and did a mock newscast on the Today Show set - ds was the weatherman.

We have 4 more field trips coming up this month!

We are going today to a historical farm where we'll help shear sheep, the old fashioned way.

We just got home from spending the last 4 days on a 1000 acre ranch in South Central Texas. The boys road horses, learned to shoe and care for the horses, fed cows, hiked through some very advanced trails at Garner State Park where they also explored a cave, and just about road the tred off of all the ATVs : ) lol    It was a blast!
