So, yesterday we had a day full of field trips!! Field trips are a MUST when homeschooling your children. You want them to get out and about and see the world... Also, it helps them to integrate into society as well!
The first trip was to our local library!!! Now, I was unsure if I could use the camera in the library, so the pictures are limited (BOOOOO), but I did manage to get a few in!! :)
So, we started with a leisure walk through the library and we came up on the aquarium that they have in there (No pictures, however) -- How BEAUTIFUL it was!! My goodness. When we got to the aquarium, we talked about the colors of the fish, the sand, and the aquarium ornaments. We then talked about all the colors that were on the floor in there (they had lights in the floor with different colors in them... red, green, yellow and blue) She did VERY well in that area!! :) She truly enjoyed the aquarium and all the the amazing fish they had in there (SO DID I!!! I CANNOT WAIT TO GO BACK AND SEE IT AGAIN!)
We then went to the children's section and took a bit of a break.
She then saw some stuffed animals on the floor. She said, "Oh my gosh... A bear and a lion!!!" so I decided to have a mini photo session with her and them! :)
We then saw some books that were back there and she wanted to go through them. One of them was a shape book and she knew ALL of the shapes! Even the HEXAGON AND THE OCTAGON!!! #PROUDMOMMYOMMENT!!! Got a few pictures in of her and these lovely books!!!
Then, it was STORY TIME!! They have the CUTEST seating areas in the children's section of the library. We came up on this bench and table and she says, "Ooh... look at the big books!!" -- I was confused at first, because I didn't see it, then I took a picture of her 'on them'... I then understood:
|See it?? It's two books!! :) She taught me something today!! <3|
|Ummm... Someone is bored...|
|LMBO!!!! *sigh* My baby!!|
As you can see in the pictures, towards the end, in perfect Choca fashion, she wasn't feeling the book (I wasn't either, actually), so we nixed that and went out to the children's garden:
|Choca was TERRIFIED of this toad... Although, she KNEW it was a frog, which made me happy!|
|This picture was supposed to be of her and the toad... but, she looked at it for afar instead!! :)|
|And, here is a gnome getting drunk off of a rose!! HAHA!! Choca kept saying, "DRINK THAT ROSE, GNOMEO!!" HAHA!|
Now, it wasn't a huge garden with lots of flowers and stuff (which I'm happy about, because that would me A LOT of bees, and I'm not having that... EEEEEEK!!!), but it was nice and gave us the Vitamin D we needed. It was truly beautiful!
That concluded the visit to the Library. She then ate her snack in the car:
|"Mmmmmm..." That's what she was saying!|
|She loves french fries!!|
It was a great day!!!
