Museum Day

We spent time at the Museum of Aviation in Warner Robins today with our family. My mom & stepfather are in town and since Mario is a pilot and military veteran, we knew it would be a hit. I was pleasantly surprised that our girls enjoyed it as much as they did. It didn't hurt that there were a ton of actual planes for us to see and that it counted as part of their home school days. We all agreed that it was a successful and enjoyable adventure.

There's something powerful about walking through history. It's not just about the cool planes (although that part was phenomenal) but it's about the stories that each plane and exhibit told. It was about the great sacrifices of people in trying times of war and their willingness to fight for freedom. There is something appealing about sharing in tales of great valor, leadership in adversity, and a unified team fighting to preserve their values. It's was a powerful reminder of important principles and the people who lived their lives fully committed to preserving them.
