I love homeschooling.
And if you know anything about my history, you will know that my saying that is nothing short of a miracle.
This past week, we were blessed by a wonderful field trip to a local traveling petting zoo, led by a woman who rescues and rehabilitates all kinds of animals, from pets to exotics.
|The armadillo! Boy, this little fellow was incredible, especially when he did his rolling-into-a-ball act. Adorable!|
Our littlest one was extremely fond of the baby alpaca, but unfortunately for him, the alpaca is still people-shy.
Our middle baby loved everything! He had a great time.
Our eldest's favorite was the gecko! The owner explained that the gecko has an unsettling habit of jumping unexpectedly onto people's faces - which the gecko promptly did to our son! He spent the rest of the time telling everyone about his adventures with the gecko (and trying to get it to jump on him again, which it obligingly did).
|The incredible jumping gecko!|
Have I mentioned how much I am enjoying home education?
|A Patagonian Cavy - one of the world's largest rodents! (A relative of the capybara)|
|A Giant Flemish Rabbit (the pic doesn't do it justice - this thing was huge!)|
