Museum of Glass

We had a great visit to the Museum of Glass on Thursday. This is an important part of the Tacoma community. The boys enjoyed watching the guest artist blow Humpty Dumpty and attach his arms and legs to the egg shaped body. We also checked out the exhibits and made and submitted entries for the Kids Design Glass program.

County Council

We had a wonderful visit with County Councilmember Connie Ladenburg last week. She allowed the boys to sit on the dais that the council uses and to experiment with the microphone system.

The boys each got their own microphone and when they wanted to answer or ask a question or comment on something Councilmember Ladenburg said, they had to push a button for permission to speak. Once they were acknowledged by the chair, the microphone was turned on and they were able to share. They had to start their statements with "Thank you Councilmember Ladenburg."
The boys really enjoyed seeing how it worked.

They reviewed the branches of government and heard about the differences between the county and city governments. They were able to share their visions for Pierce County's future and hear what the county is doing to help make those visions a reality.
