Monday we went to Epcot Homeschool Day. I did not sign up the boys for the extra programs so the only thing we needed to do other than explore the park was listen to a speaker at 10 a.m. Lee Wilson an attraction and show engineer spoke for about 20 minutes and then answered questions. The boys were impressed when he asked who liked video games (over 1/2 the audience raised their hands) and he laughed. Then he asked who plays games like Thrillville and another game I do not remember. Which most of the kids raised their hands again. Then he explained that making simulators like on Thrillville is exactly what he does for a living. Micah asked a couple of questions and when we were dismissed we hit the park.
Now I must confess I was not that impressed. It was fun and I am glad we went but considering it cost $70 for an adult ticket. I am glad that I did not have to pay full price for homeschool days. We did learn a few things and took a lot of photos. The boys and I had fun and that is the important thing. Here are some pics but I think the boys (Xavier especially) will be posting some on their blogs also.
