Field Trip Week: Rose Gardens and Santa Lucia Preserve
We declared last week “Field Trip Week”, and had ourselves a grand ol’ time. We visited the aquarium, a beautiful rose garden, a robotics show, and Santa Lucia Nature Preserve.
The big boys practiced their lines for their upcoming end-of-year parent night, we squeezed in a few math lessons, read a few books, and welcomed Nonna and Aunt Janet to town.
Now for stop two on our Week of Adventures: Santa Lucia Preserve
This place, located in Carmel Valley, is thickly wooded, and it is, unfortunately, not open to the public. We only got to go because we all tagged along on Daniel’s Preschool Field trip as chaperones, drivers, and siblings.
There were also pictures of bobcats and coyotes. I said, “Oh. We have those in our neighborhood.”
Then I saw a photo of a mountain lion. I added, “Oh, I hope we don’t have those in our neighborhood.”
The nature guide smiled. “You do,” she assured me. Apparently, central California is the mountain lion zone.
We also had a “family presentation” two weeks ago at our Classical Conversations campus.
Joshua and Caleb created this poster, which I thought was pretty doggone cute. Caleb is especially interested in prehistoric Megalodon sharks.
And now for some good ol’ fashioned fun. Nothing like balloons under shirts.
I’m afraid last week will be a tough act to follow! But here we go…
Wishing you all a happy week! I’ll leave you with my current theme song, via YouTube:
