PLACE: St. Louis City Museum
SUBJECT: Wall of printer’s blocks
Today I accompanied StellaDella’s Brownie troop and troop leader to the City Museum in St. Louis. DramaQueen, MonkeyBoy and DQ’s BFF also came with us. It was a trade-off – they could come and have fun, but we also used them to help wrangle the 9 girls. Another set of parents met us later for even more reinforcements – then we let the three older ones off on their own. It worked out well. At 1:30pm we ate lunch in a private room off the Skateless Park. These blocks were attached to one of the end walls of our room.
