This week felt almost like our school year had started back again. We took a fun field trip with several other families from our homeschool group to Cheekwood Gardens in Nashville. Each year Cheekwood hosts a special homeschool day, usually developed around their summer theme. This year the main theme was Big Bugs, along with emphasis on Andy Warhol's Flowers and a couple more smaller-but-just-as-beautiful exhibits. We really enjoyed it (even if there was a heat advisory and I thought at one point we might truly melt...ha!)!
Here are some highlights from our day:
David Rogers' Big Bugs
Patrick Dougherty: Little Bitty Pretty One twig sculpture
On the Carell Woodland Sculpture Trail
More of the Carell Woodland Sculpture Trail
If you live near Nashville or are passing through, this is a great spot for enjoying nature, strolling through gardens, taking a leisurely "hike" on the sculpture trail, browsing the art museum, or having a picnic on the grounds.
aahhemmm....I recommend going on a day when there isn't 100% humidity though. ;)
A big thanks to my sister for sharing her photos with me ...since I forgot my camera.
