The Zoo

We love getting out as a family.  One of the most amazing things about having flexible work schedules and homeschooling is having the opportunity to get out for family "field trips" in which we learn together about new things.  This post is old, intended for publication over a year ago, but the value remains.  Children learn best from interaction and the opportunity to experience the world.  Here are a few snippets from our day.

The kids had an opportunity to touch some farm animals in the petting zoo including goats and sheep.  The goats were a major hit and total favorite.

As the kids touched and pet the goats, our oldest daughter had the opportunity to ask the zoo keeper questions about goats.
