We went to the zoo, how about you?

This past week we went on one of our last field trips of the year, and it was awesome! We got to visit the Birmingham Zoo. At school, we have been learning facts about zoo animals and really talking up what we would see at the zoo. Finally, it was our day to visit the zoo. We had a great time! We got to see all sorts of neat animals, feed the lorikeets, and ride the train. All my kiddos were great! They all stayed together, used our peacemaker words, and had fun. A special thanks to all my parents who were able to come with us. You don't know how much I appreciated your kindness, help, and support! Here are a few awesome pics of our trip.
 Feeding the Lorikeets
 Got to see the elephants.
 The baby lion cubs! Oh my goodness, they were so fun to watch!
 Our little tour guide! Since it had been a very long time since Mrs. Snead had been at the zoo, Vyveanna, who had came a lot, helped us out! Thanks!
 We even worked on our map skills at the zoo. We wanted to see what we wanted to look at next.
 Having fun on the train ride.
 Checking out the sea lions. Anna decided that she no longer wants to be a teacher at BSLK, she want to be a zoo keeper so she can spend all day swimming with the sea lions! :) Great idea!
We're excited about the zoo!

Well guys, it's getting close to time to say good bye for another school year and move forward. Wow! Just seems like a week or two ago we were just getting to know each other and learning about colors! We have come so far! We are reading now and being such big girls and boys. I'm so proud of all of them. These next few weeks brings Mommy morning, first grade move up days, graduation, last round of DIBELS testing, field day, book fair, and our end of the year party. WHEW!! Lots going on at BSLK! This next week our theme is oceans, just in time to start thinking about summer beach trips. Looking forward to another busy and fun week in K!


  1. Love the shirts--so easy to spot the little ones. Did you make them for the trip?

  2. Our school PTO buy them for our kids every year. We wear them for all field trips and the kids get to keep them at the end of the year. We get a new color every year. yeah I love it!
