And it's goodbye, Paige, until next time.
I wonder if I'm the only one with more introverted kids. Because my girls were contained, cautious and respectful, the instructor thought they weren't excited to be there. I had to assure her they were excited. Knowing my kids like I do, I can read their expressions and I realize that they are in awe and have reverence for what is going on. Is this a homeschool kid thing? When I first began homeschooling I noticed that the homeschooled kids were a lot quieter, a bit more adult, than other children when in a learning situation or public environment.
After a quick bite to eat at Jason's Deli, we went on a fieldtrip to a nearby arboretum. The arboretum has over 900 species of trees and a little botany pond with ducks.
|Running to the pond and the ducks.|
We also found some friends that we've been discussing lately.
Some gnarly roots in the botany pond.
Make way for ducklings!
Lovely man made waterfall.
One of the cutest squirrels I've ever seen.
Sophie found it on the path...miniature perfection.
Summer goodbye, summer goodbye. You may no longer stay. Autumn is on it's way!
A full day, but I think we all enjoyed it.
