Zoo Field Trip!

Being a SAHM is a wonderful thing and being able to chaperon some of Kian's field trips is one of the many reasons why I love it so much.

Today the Bottenfield kindergarten classes went to Decatur to see the zoo and children's museum. I was the Momma Giraffe to the three little Giraffes below (each chaperoned group was given an animal).

The photo above was taken on the train. Funny how Jong Min is the only one smiling - well not really - we were all pretty miserable because it rained the whole time we were there! None of us had jackets or umbrellas, but thankfully the zoo gift shop had umbrellas so we had shelter if we wanted it.

We ate lunch before we headed to the museum and at lunch I talked to the boys about their favorite animals. All of them said that there most favorite was the white peacock that was roaming around the park. It screeched at us after Kian made a high pitched noise to it - it scared the boys a bit and sent me into a good laugh. The boys laughed too after they realized the peacock was only just talking back and wouldn't come after them.

The museum was a lot of fun. Although there was a lot to look at and having three little boys to look after made it hard to keep them wrangled from running off! One of the favorite things for all the kids at the museum was a climbing structure. Below are some photos of my "Giraffes" climbing together.

All-in-all we had a really good day. I was quite exhausted when we got home and wondered how Mr. Keepes does this every day. It really does take a special kind of person to be a teacher.
