Well, hello there, friends. Just wanted to share a little of what we've been up to over the last few weeks. We made another trip to our Kansas City Zoo. We've missed our regular visits for their homeschool programs. They start back up again next month, but they've revamped them to the point that it may be difficult for us to swing the time frames this year. We'll just have to wait and see what their final decision is. We can still always visit just for fun, as was the case this day. They also had a yummy breakfast for Friends of the Zoo members, so we were off.
Wings of Wonder show. It was super difficult to get any decent pics, especially because I put my hubby in charge of the camera (Tee hee!), while I held Kaden, but I did snap this one of my big kiddos getting up close and personal with an African Grey Parrot.
back here, but there were still lots of things new to my kiddos. Adina found this cool penmanship board. When you run the pen over the letters, the holes are filled in with magnetic balls. To knock them back down, you simply run over the letters with your finger. Such a great way to teach the ball and stick method! I totally would've purchased it, but it was CRAZY expensive.
Kidscape one morning, and they spent the afternoon at our house; but we were so busy catching up, that I failed to get many pics. LOL!
Topeka Zoo, before they left for their home in Texas, I made sure to get lots.
Half Price Books. They also each got to pick a book out, for their reading, at Barnes and Noble; but after two years of having done this, I'm completely unimpressed with the excitement garnered from their program. It's advertised terribly, too. I guess when you don't have any competition, you can get away with that. But we're always grateful for the opportunity to earn good books for free.
