AWANA was held at the Hainerburg Elementary School gym the first two years we were here and VBS was there all three summers!
I also want to give a shout-out to the principal there. She’s a fantastic woman who happens to be a fellow Chaplain’s wife. She has been so helpful to me as a homeschooler. She has offered the school for our homeschool functions and has led her teachers to be homeschool friendly. We needed to borrow some equipment for a science experiment a few years ago and one of the teachers was kind enough to let us take two home for a whole month!
A bit about our trip:
il papa. We won’t actually be seeing the Pope while there but we will be seeing his country! Today we tour the Vatican, starting with the museum in the morning. We have been given a good tip to have a snack and a little rest-the-legs break at the café just before we enter the Sistine Chapel. After our break and our jaw-dropping view of the amazing frescos by Michelangelo we’ll leave out the secret exit to tour St. Peter’s Basilica.
A few things I’m VERY excited to see:
- Sistine Chapel
- The Raphael Rooms
- Bernini’s Colonnade
- Bernini’s Baldacchino
After this we’ll go back to our apartment, which is nearby, for a nap.
This afternoon we will see the Pantheon in the daylight, which won’t take long. After that I have a question mark beside Castile St. Angelo. It’s a nearby fortress that the Popes have used as a defense during different raids over the centuries. There’s a neat passage way between the two. I would like to see it but we may be too tired.
For dinner, Hard Rock Café. Making my husband a happy man!
