We spent yesterday at the museum. They had a live stick insect display which had my youngest in raptures..... as his favourite living thing on this earth is the stick insect. He even got a whole book on the subject for his birthday. Riveting stuff.
We met a really interesting museum guide who is doing his PhD in Paleontology... small mammals.. so he spends his days digging in caves.... looking for fossilized rodents. My boys were fascinated. They had a very in depth discussion, on the evolution of dinosaurs, bearded dragons, blue tongue lizards and birds, with Mr PhD man. I wandered off and found out the real name for the 'Blue Crayfish' we found in the rainforest... 'The Lamington Spiny Crayfish'... riveting.
We always make a special school holiday trip to our favourite sushi place. Something to look forward to at the end of each term. Tobiko ship ... and make that a double! Just as well it is once a term. Those boys can put it away.
What are you up to these school holidays.... got any great suggestions? .... they're discussing school holidays over at the Decorating Forum too.
