Yesterday I was invited to be a VIP guest (I know it makes me sound extremely important, don't be fooled) tonight at the Sneak Preview of the Invention at Play exhibit at the Children's Discovery Museum at the Gateway. I love this museum. If you have never taken your children you need to! The exhibit officially opens on Saturday and runs through the end of August. It is a traveling exhibit sponsored by the Smithsonian Institute. I am very honored to be asked to attend.
The idea of the exhibit is to foster an influx of creativity and entrepreneurial spirit in Utah. The director of the museum saw the article in the Salt Lake Tribune about Cap Trappers and thought the story epitomized "invention at play." And really it does. The only reason I came up with this idea was from playing and teaching children.
I'll let you know how it goes tonight.
t h e m a y f i l e s is foremost a family blog, chronicling everyday life. Life including natural, healthy eating (with recipes thrown in at random), home educating (with ideas popping up sporadically), an attempt to homestead on .2 acres (with very meager yields), raising 3 of 4 children with a rare genetic disorder, and lots of highly personal family triumphs and failures. You may also find an eclectic array of musings on politics, exercise, sewing, emergency preparedness, backyard chickens, and religion. This blog isn't a campaign to glorify anyone or anything. Just simply a record.
