Field Trip

While Summer has officially arrived for the boys, Ella still has a few days of 2nd grade left to finish off.  Not that she is spending a whole lot of time buried in books, I don't think.  There was Fun Day last week and then the 2nd Grade Field Trip to the Dallas World Aquarium this week. 

Poppa and Gigi, you should have seen it.  No wall-to-wall hineys and elbows this time.  For the first hour, we practically had the place to ourselves.  We need a do-over! 

 There were two moms to wrangle these four girls and I don't think we could have done with less moms or more girls.  Whew.

 All of the kids were assigned five animals to find and gather facts on during our visit.  It only took about 30 minutes before we were all cheating (capitalizing on our available resources?) and Googling Mot-Mot.

 I wish I could remember what was so shocking.

In the end, we failed to find two of our five assigned animals, but I'm pretty sure Ella will get to pass on to 3rd grade in the fall just the same.
