Botanical Gardens

Another field trip...this time with Alli's class. We had a good time at the Botanical Gardens looking at plants, creepy crawly things on the ground, and of course, worms. Alli volunteered to hold one of the worms, but when it started wriggling around in her hand, she wasn't too sure.
It didn't take long for her to warm up to her little friend.

I think I may now function in society

I think I've figured it out. Video. I am pretty much awesome. Oh yeah, and if you get seasick watching this, blame Hazel. It was a battle trying to film Alli while Hazel was trying to grab the camera.

This is a song of Alli singing Earth Day songs with her first grade class. Yup, they can't sing Christmas songs, but they can sing all about Mother Earth and saving the planet. So, I gritted my teeth (not so good for TMJ) and recorded a song because even if they started doing some sort of pagan sacrifice, I would still think that Alli was cute doing it. Go green!

To the Zoo!

Mary had a field trip to the zoo with her preschool. We had fun- we were able to go see what we wanted to, so we didn't have to follow a group. There were some new animals this time, too! Mary and Hazel liked the penguins the best.
