Rather than drive straight to Georgia, we planned to break up the trip into manageable chunks to allow ample time for nursing/eating/potty breaks and visiting attractions along the way. Our first stop was the Creation Museum, a family favorite near Cincinnati. Click here to read all about one of our past “field trips” and see plenty of pictures of this awesome museum.
We only had a few hours to spend during this visit, and the most popular attraction for us was the Lucy exhibit, a stunning display utilizing holographic technology. This revered “missing link” is demonstrated to not be quite the lady many seem to think she is, and I highly recommend this Answers in Genesis article if you would like to read more about this.
In the new museum exhibit, a number of Lucy heads have been created, cast from the same mold. Each head, however, is given different skin and eye coloration, as well as variations in the amount and color of hair. This was done to demonstrate how significant artistic license can be employed by researchers in interpreting what Lucy resembled as they “put flesh to the bones” of the creature. There simply isn’t enough information found in the fossil bones for anyone to determine what Lucy looked like.
The kids had fun aligning themselves with the “Lucy heads,” making for some unique reflections, as you can see.
Elisabeth had also been hoping for a camel ride this trip since she’s a little older and less intimidated, but Mr. Camel was not giving rides on the day we visited, and we ended up not having time for the museum’s petting zoo at all. She had to settle for a perch atop the ever-popular triceratops instead.
There is a lot to see here, folks—all state of the art. As always, I highly recommend a visit. No matter which side of the debate you’re on, you’ll come away with a lot to think about.

Saturday, October 20 9-3
Happy Day School, 2500 Brady Lake Rd., Ravenna, OH 44266
Can’t make the show? Then take advantage of the autumn special going on now on my Lilla Rose website.
Autumn is here! It’s officially on the calendar and in the air. Are you ready?
Fitting with the season, I have been busy sewing scarves in a variety of styles and lengths. I got the idea from a consultant friend who sells her handmade scarves along with flexi-clips, and being the
totally OCD creative person I am, I was quick to jump on the idea too.
So there you have it. Flexi-clips are fabulous in your hair AND with a scarf. Below are pictures of just a few of them. The nice thing about a flexi-clip is that you’re not constantly poking holes in your scarf as with a brooch, yet it still holds securely.
And if you’re free this coming Saturday, I’d love some company. Come visit me from 9-3 at the
North Canton Church of Christ Fall Craft Show
1301 East Maple St.
North Canton, Ohio 44720
I’ll have a Lilla Rose display with a pretty assortment of my scarves, along with a super sale to go with them! Find something special to dress up your hair AND your neck!
Flexi-clips and other hair accessories are also available on my Lilla Rose website.
