Homeschool Thursday

Well, we started school this week. We have started out slow, only doing a couple of subjects. Next week we will get more going on. This week though we took our first field trip of the new school year. We went to the zoo. It was a great day, sunny but not too hot. We had a nice time and got some cute pictures. We were able to get a look at the 3 week old giraffe outside with the other giraffes. See the baby over there?

Here's the daddy. Isn't he cute?

We visited the dog shark area, where you can touch the sharks. The kids love that!

The polar bear is one of our favorites too.

We also took in the dolphin show, but I can never get good pictures in there.
We didn't get to all the animals this trip. Next time I guess. I think our next field trip will be the beginning of October. Stay tuned, I'll be posting about it.


  1. The polar bear looks so cute and cuddley!! We haven't been to the zoo in years. Will have to make a point of going this fall.

  2. My daughters are now 25 and 22 years old and I homeschooled them from Kindergarten. What a great experience! Field trips were the best and we saw so many cool things and met lots of interesting people. Have fun :)
