Plans Derailed -- Literally-- So Here Comes a Catch Up Post

Mikro was supposed to be at the Metropolitan Museum of Art today, on a field trip with his Comparative Religions class. Unfortunately, Metro North still hasn't gotten the Hudson Line back on track after Sunday's tragic derailment. So travel into the city was not in the cards today...

I suppose it is only appropriate that I post some photos from his last Comparative Religions field trip to the American Museum of Natural History. When forced to stay home, I can actually get around to editing photos and blogging. So I guess that's my attempt at finding a silver lining...

The class has been looking at early religions such as animism, totemism and shamanism, so their journey through the AMNH focused on artifacts that illustrated the things they have been studying.
















The AMNH is so much more than dinosaur bones (though we love those, of course, especially my paleo geek boy...) It was fun to tour some of the anthropological collections for a change!

I knew Wendy's classes would be a perfect fit for Mikey! The train accident was near our Riverdale train station (Spuyten Duyvil). Scary!
