This alone was worth the price of admission...

A few weeks ago, our homeschool group went on a field trip to the Indianapolis Children's Museum. We'd been there a few years ago, but they have a new exhibit that was absolutely amazing.


"Fireworks of Glass": a four story tower of blown glass by artist Dale Chihuly. It is built on a glass floor, and what you see from underneath the tower is almost more impressive.

The entire floor/ceiling is layered with hundreds and hundreds of pieces of blown glass in an array of colors and shapes. With the lighting behind the glass, the effect is breathtaking. I could have stayed there all day looking at it. Very, very cool.



I took many more pictures than these, but you get the idea. If you get the chance, you should go.

Hey Erin,

We have been 'friends' on homeschool blogger almost since the beginning. While I don't post comments often (and in fact didn't even really blog for almost a year) I do subscribe to you via google reader.

Care to share why you moved your blog? I have been considering moving mine as well...mostly because I want to make mine a little 'fancier' and can't seem to figure out how to do that in HSB.

BTW~ I loved the new piano. How exciting for your family. It would make me want to play! =)
