Wednesday Write Up-Thursday Style

 


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

Right before school started, Mr. Ken
took a Friday and Monday off . On
that Friday we took a day trip to
Wichita, which is south of where we
live.

 
There are a lot of different
museums in Wichita, but
the one we went to was The
Mid-America All-Indian Museum.
This Totem Pole is directly outside
of the museum.


 


 
 
The museum has a library for guests
to use while visiting. Very extensive 
collection.

 
Never thought much about this, found
it very interesting.

 

 
This is Blackbear Bosin.

 
A Comanche-Kiowa sculptor and
painter. He passed away in 1980
in Wichita.

 
Beautiful artifacts to look at.

 
This is one set of jewelry on display.
Gorgeous!

 
This is The Gallery of Nations.
Each flag hanging represents
an Indian nation.

 
Many photos on display showing
adults and children doing a variety
of  dances at Pow Wows.


Ladies.

 
Gentleman. All of the photos were
beautiful. each one captured
perfectly the dance.

 
This is The Keeper of the Plains
Statue. It is located in a beautiful
park outside of the museum.
It is a 44 ft Cor-Ten steel
sculpture created by Blackbear
Bosin.

 
It was created in 1974 and placed
at the confluence of the Arkansas
and Little Arkansas Rivers. At
night the Ring of Fire is lit, lighting
up the statue and the beautiful park
it is guarding.

 
After our visit to the museum, we
drove through downtown. I had
heard about a Chalk Park. During
weekday lunch time they have food
trucks, seating and just a nice area
to hang out. The butterfly was above
the chalk wall. It is encouraged that
messages left are "family friendly."

 

 
Someone had a birthday while he was
on vacation. (Mr. Ken)


One lone rose popped out for
round two of blooming. The
rest were eaten or the heat got
them.


We had storms last night and
this morning. Plus fog on the
drive to school.

School is keeping me sooo
busy to the point that I went
to bed at 9 p.m. last night,
unheard of in our house but
I could not keep my eyes
open.

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.


~Keep on Dreaming~

  2. What a super adventure you had before returning to work! Hopefully, life at school will settle back into a good routine for you. I remember the first few of school coming home exhausted. Have a restful weekend!

    1. Thank you!
      I do think our routine is sinking in. A few more times doing it and I think we will have it, then of course it will
      change.

  3. What a cool museum...I love the statue that lights up with the Ring of Fire. I start school this coming Monday and from what I've heard about the changes being made in schedules (ours and the daily), it's going to be a challenge! But I guess since we're in Special Ed, we "do" challenges, don't we?! Happy weekend to you!
