A Day at the Zoo

Carrying the picnic basket. Comrades in arms. How cute!
Lindsay in the petting zoo

Feeding the birds at the zoo. The birds were hilarious. Travis said he never needed to feed another bird! He has had his fill!!! The birds must have been starving, because as soon as we walked in, they jumped all over us! It was a little unnerving, to say the least!!

The Macaws drinking nectar

Emily and Kara feeding them! They had about six on them at one time, but I was busy trying to get rid of one off my shoulder and so missed the shot...sigh...!:)
Sorry, I ran out of memory on my camera and these are all the pictures I got of the kids. They had a blast and even got to pet toroises. It was a lot of fun. Then, we went to the swing area and had a picnic lunch. It was a great morning!
Trust you are all having a wonderful day! Trisha

Keeping Busy!

Here is the latest update on the patio. It is finally getting done and looks great! It is so exciting to start seeing it come together at long last! I am enjoying it so much!
Here are Lindsay and Sophia planting flowers and enjoying Spring!

Here is the lady that we do our co-op with each week! When we went to the community college for the kids' chemistry experiments, we all had to wear these goggles. We looked pretty funny!

Here are the kids with their teacher. It was a lot of fun and they enjoyed it!

Here is Emily with a friend doing some of the experiments.
It has been a busy month for us. It has been nice to get into May and find life slowing down atleast for a short time. Hope you all are having a little break before the summer business starts and then fall just goes on and on! :)

Emily has finally gotten braces! It has been somewhat of an ordeal! She had to have 4 permanent teeth pulled and believe me, she did not enjoy it!! She was ready to forget having beautiful teeth! She has been excited with the braces though. I'll post pictures as soon as I can of the "new look". Travis has decided he wants braces, too. I told him that I HOPED he didn't have to have them. Goodness! Kids are funny like that!

Other than that, we have pretty much come to a halt with school, except for a little bit of Math left. We are READY to be done! Spring has sprung and we don't want to miss any of it!

The kids have had a blast this year and I have been so grateful! After the last year, I was ready to call it quits, until I found a lady who did unit studies, and we started doing classes together on Thursdays. The kids have loved it so much! It has breathed new life in to us! Next year, we are going with that curriculum and already have our year mapped out! We are very excited about it!
Have a great Friday and a wonderful weekend!
