Sometimes it really pays to have awesome friends who totally get the whole "we're in full-time ministry and our field trip budget is eensy weensy" thing!
No, Silly, that is NOT my awesome friend I was talking about! That is the giraffe that we got to see just a few feet outside of our car window as we enjoyed a drive through "safari"!
However, we could not have met Mr. Giraffe if my awesome friend had not texted me to let me know about the Groupon that got us into this safari for less than half price! You rock, Debb! ;)
Yes we have snacks, but don't be greedy!
Sorry, Dude, your friends were greedy and we're fresh out!
T1 and T2 decided Daddy really should build them a fort like this!
One of my very, very favorite parts of homeschooling is the ability to have all day, family adventures like this and call it school! T1 has always been fascinated by animals and has read more books than I can count on all different kinds. Having him with us was like having our own personal tour guide. As we drove along he shared his wealth of information about many of the animals we saw. How cool for Josh, T2 and I to learn from Thing 1 and what a gift for him to see up close and personal many of the animals he's read about.
