Field Trips and Field Day

Do you see what I see?? This was our scary/surprise on the way to church one Wednesday night.  This tree sits on the right side of the road so as we were approaching it looked like a huge dear was about to cross the street… well after Darren slammed on the brakes this is what we saw!!! I guess the people want everyone to stop speeding down their street…great way to get everyone’s attention. (it only stayed up that day but my kids are still looking for it every time we drive by)

The last week in April Jack’s class took a Field trip to Dauset Trails.  It’s a great nature center full of animals native to our area. Plus it’s free! The weather was awesome that day. I was really worried about hiking in the heat and being 34 weeks preggers… but it turned cold!! We were all in hoodies!! Dauset Trails IMG_6812editWe saw bears, owls, eagles, otters, pigs, horses, goats, foxes, cougars, and more!Dauset TrailsDauset TrailsDauset Trails Dauset Trails    The best was when we came upon some Canadian Geese and their five goslings!  Too cute!

On to Field Day!

Hailey’s school had their Field day this past Friday.  Darren and I took Jack and joined in the HOT fun!! Thank goodness it started at 9am, I was melting by 11am!  Can you tell I’m not loving the heat right now?!?!   Field Day Hailey did so good with all her events!! The kindergarteners all participated in different types of relay races… no 1st, 2nd, 3rd stuff, just lots of fun!

Love the tongue concentration!Field Day Field DayField Day

Jack took LOTS of pictures that day!  This was about the only one worth sharing ;) Too bad there isn’t nice sandy beaches under our feet! IMG_6879 Field Day
