Good Evening, these days are flying
by, I am having a tough time keeping
up. I realized that I did not post

There are a lot of different
museums in Wichita, but
the one we went to was The
Mid-America All-Indian Museum.

Never thought much about this, found
it very interesting.
This is Blackbear Bosin.

Beautiful artifacts to look at.
This is one set of jewelry on display.
This is The Gallery of Nations.
Each flag hanging represents

It was created in 1974 and placed

weekday lunch time they have food

to hang out. The butterfly was above
the chalk wall. It is encouraged that
messages left are "family friendly."

rest were eaten or the heat got
We had storms last night and
this morning. Plus fog on the
drive to school.

to bed at 9 p.m. last night,
unheard of in our house but
I could not keep my eyes
We have another day trip
planned for Saturday but
I can't day much because
"someone " might read the
blog and find out where we
are going. More later.
