A Visit to the Zoo

It's been a long time since we've been to the zoo, particularly on a warm day.  I do believe the last 2 times we've gone were both for Boo at the Zoo for the past 2 years.  The boys LOVED running and seeing all the different animals.  CJ has been studying about maps in his Beginning Geography course and was in charge of the zoo map.  It was fun to watch him utilize his skills outside in the real world.  He was also very interested in reading the signs of information about the animals, not something he was ready for in the past.  Of course the running around bit was also a highlight.
 EMan loved visiting the zoo as well.  It was nice enough to want a sweater occasionally but we were able to get by with just t-shirts for most of the day.  We went with our homeschooling group (LEARN) and had a blast.  Because the adults are taking a Love and Logic class on Friday mornings we had to switch the time for our zoo outing to the afternoon and lost quite a few rsvp's due to nap time.  We still had a total blast though.  This week in preschool we were talking about the letter E (for elephants of course) and we love reinforcing what we're learning through fun field trips.
