Tis the season for field trips.
Jon's class went to a nature center near the school. I was thrilled that it was on a day Becca was at school and so I got to go along. I was actually surprised at how much he LOVED it. I knew he would have a good time, but I didn't realize how much of an impression it would make on him. He is talking about a lot and sharing a bunch of facts that he learned with his brother and sister.
They got to see a lot of animals, including turtles, snakes, rabbits, and an owl. They also learned all about different bird calls. Finally we took a short walk outside (short because it was rainy), and we saw different flowers and animal prints as well as some deer in the brush.
We (Jon, Becca, and I) also took a trip with my Moms group to Dutch Village. We rode the rides and walked around. A favorite is always stopping at the wooden shoe factory and trying on the samples, including these giant ones.
