It. Was. Awesome.
I know I should be ashamed, because it's so local and so cool, but I had no idea that they did this. Once a year, they have a free open house. Open to anyone who wants to come, not just homeschoolers or public school field trips or anything.
They offer presentations on different things, live animals, demonstrations and more. We saw a dog show (frisbee catching and agility competition), we saw llamas, camels, cows, bugs, plants...TONS of stuff. We went with some friends and didn't realize we would kill six hours and still be sad when it was over, lol.
Here are just a few photos:
|I think that's called a Walking Stick. And it's not yet fully grown. Will eventually be about 8 inches or longer.|
|Madagascar Hissing Cockroach. Eeeeeeeek.|
|Yep. Crickets. Eating them.|
|Prepping for "teddy bear surgery." So cute! ;)|
|Dr. Braeden is doing an excellent job...|
This week will probably be pretty slow on the school front. I am working six days this week, getting ready for the end of tax season. Blech. And of course, because I'm still trying to win that "homeschool mom of the year" award, I don't have a thing planned. Ugh. At least they have some notes and some saved wiki-pages from their vet day. They can use those to create spelling/vocabulary word lists to study, and to play games like Match Sentences. That's better than nothing, right? :)
