Last night Rachel and other students at Fletcher Miller School were honored by having their art featured in a show in the Corner Gallery at the Lakewood Cultural Center.  I have a lot of respect for her art teacher, Jenni, as you really have to think outside of the box to teach a blind person to create art beyond finger paints, wikki sticks and tactile stickers.  I’m really proud of both Rachel and her teacher and going to the show was a very sunny moment for me.  I tried to take her picture with her art and her certificate but she, much like her mother, was a bit of a shit about it.  LOL.

We also took a look (those of us that can see) at an artist, Chris Kreig, who had a really cool “BIG” exhibit, I put in a couple of his pieces with Julie posing at the bottom.

2000px-Texas_flag_map.svgTexas is a hot country and they are known for being the lone star state and they only have a natural lake called Caddo lake.My dad comes from Texas and he now lives in Colorado with us and he is here at are place for a little. before Texas was a state it was a country and in England there is a restaurant in the former Texas Embassy.

 If Texas wanted to they can split into 5 different states which would give Texas 10 Senators but is also the second largest state and the 1st is. so end of Blog and I hope you all enjoy this Texas blog.

Today we went to the Museum of Nature and Science and we had a great time and we became members there.We saw an camel and T-Rex at the entrance when we became members.  We also first watched a movie called “We Are Aliens” which was cool. And then we looked at the space exhibit and we learned that some places get less sun than others in months and how a star is born then there death.

After that we looked at some Mummies. They had a rich one with lots a amulets and gold , a poor one that had its brains still and livers which were supposed to be removed, and they also had animals which had only some bones and there skull broken or missing. And we saw why they made mummies: because they believed people could come back and have an afterlife.

We also saw a whale exhibit which we got to be in a real life size grey whale heart which is big and we could go in it. There was a board of whales and dolphins and we got to feel some whale bones. Then we got to do some things like make your own whale and try to make sure the dolphin doesn’t get hurt. But the bad news is we lost Boston’s cape 🙁 but we ask the guards to look for it.

Here are some pictures:
