Field Trip season is well under way. We went to the Atlanta History Center today. The Ben Franklin Exhibit was OK, like much in Atlanta, great building but not much inside. Thankfully, the permanent exhibits were much better! The kids loved a Shot-Gun House from the Atlanta University area, as you were able to walk through and touch everything. A very important thing for a precocious seven-year-old! The house was donated to the history center after three generations of one family had lived there. The kids also liked looking at all the Olympic medals, discovery local folk art, and exploring Atlanta's history though pictures and artifacts.
