I’ve decided to break up our field trip pages by year. Grace and I wander about quite a lot, and I thought it would be easier to keep up with things this way. 🙂 Just like last year, I’m not including each and every time we go to our regular haunts…just the stuff that’s new/rare for us.
Frequently: Classes and activities at the Nature Center.
December 2012: Playing with snakes at the Reptile Zoo! 🙂
November 2012: Learning about Daddy’s (and Grandma’s) hometown.
November 2012: Nature Field Day!
October 5, 2012: Rural Hill Farm – Maize Maze, hayrides, making toys by hand, and classes about light and heat in the 18th century. Fun!
October 4, 2012: We had a great time listening to Rick Riordan speak…lots of great information about writing. 🙂
September 2012 through November 2012: Ecology classes at the Nature Center twice a month…learning, running around, and having fun!
August 30, 2012: Whitewater Rafting Center: We watched a rehabilitated osprey release (fabulous!) and a free concert (not quite as fabulous). 🙂 We also enjoyed an taking an evening stroll and watching the kayakers.
August 25, 2012: NC Zoo: We had a great time looking at all of the fabulous animals…and we got to feed a giraffe!
August 23, 2012: Jetton Park: Grace and I needed to gather sand for a math activity…so why not goof off at the park for a while??? Lots of walking, sand-playing, and splashing.
August 2012: We took a trip to Grandma’s house in Alabama. While there, Grace had a fantastic opportunity to learn about honeybees from an awesome cousin, David.
