Today we went on a field trip
with our homeschool group.
We went to a nature center/
We had lots of fun
and the area was very pretty...
The children loved exploring the nature center first.
I couldn't catch a good picture of Will and Ally
because they were off exploring,
but I was able to capture a couple
of the lil' girls' favorites.
My children are very much UNlike me
when it comes to s...n...a...k...e...s...
They don't mind them, in fact, they like them very much
and enjoy 'having fun' with mom about them.
Well, the first thing they wanted to see
were those sneaky, scaly, slithery, creatures.
Here was Beth peeking in on one...
Carolynne, in addition to the live animals,
much enjoyed the dead ones...
The nature center also had a "cave"
where the children could explore more animals.
Beth and Carolynne loved watching the turtles...
Ally enjoyed 'playing' with a fish
that she claimed was a 'cutie'...
After leaving the nature center part of the field trip,
we went to another building for a craft.
The children made a paper plate-type craft
of the life cycle of butterflies...
using pasta to represent the different stages.
They had fun...
After the craft, we headed to
the planetarium/science museum part.
But, first, some of the children had to stop
to try out being a human sun dial...
This was the first time that any of us had been
to a planetarium show...
It was a lot of fun
and quite fascinating!
After the planetarium,
we enjoyed the hands-on part
of the science museum.
Will enjoyed crawling through a heart tunnel...
He also enjoyed crawling through a mouth and intestines...
The lil' girls enjoyed this part, too,
but I couldn't get a good enough picture of them.
Ally was thrilled to examine x-rays and MRIs, first-hand...
She also enjoyed the giant game of Operation...
And so did Beth and Carolynne...
Here were a couple of shots
of the children outside...
We had a great time of learning, fun, and fellowship!
And it only cost a dollar per child
(and the gas to get there)!
It sure was a busy,
but highly enjoyable day!
I hope y'all enjoyed your day, too!
