We went to this mock trial on Monday, it was really fun! The program was called Journey through Justice.First we had a pretend law class, like you would have in law school. The topic was homicide, and we went through lots of cases and tried to decide what category they were in! Then we went into this room that had an $80,000 table in it (and a $600 trash can!).After that we went into the courtroom (it wasn’t a real courtroom, it was what our guide called an appeal courtroom, I think the only difference is that there is three judges) and had a (pretend) trial. I was part of the jury. It was the Big Bad Wolf against Curly Pig. They had lots of witnesses, let's see, there was The Old Lady Who Lived in a Shoe, Pinocchio, a Blind Mouse, Miss Piggy, Goldilocks, Bob the Builder :D, Sylvester, and Georgie Porgie. They had a real attorney come in. She was the attorney for the Wolf! After that we watched a movie and talked over some true cases, like the Lindbergh Kidnapping. Then we got these District Attorney for the Day certificates. It was so fun!
Tuesday was sort of a blah day. We still haven't finished the school year yet, so we did some math and piano practice. Leah was sick that day, so she didn't do any school.
Wednesday (today), we did school, and our great-grandma came over for the day. She just had a pacemaker put in.
Tomorrow we have piano lessons. :D
On Monday I got some really cute earrings from a catalog. They are these sweet little giraffes, I can't wait to wear them! :D
Our grandma is taking a trip on Friday to visit some relatives in California. Also, our cousin is having surgery on the same day for a ripped tendon (trampoline accident).
How has your week been going? Are you doing anything exciting this summer?
Have a great rest-of-the-week!
Grace be with you,
