These kids needed a trip away from the stress of it all and so did I. Unfortunately, I called just after the time they made the decision not to have a homeschool program this month because no one signed up. Drat. You know how it goes when you have a bunch of stuff going on at home and you don't want to make a commitment until you're sure you can keep it. Oh well.
The naturalist at the sanctuary put on a real show for us anyway. We got to watch him feed all the salamanders, the frogs, the lizards and the tarantula (well, she wasn't hungry today).
|Rose is helping pump to make an "instant cloud" out of de-natured alcohol. Collin was an excellent host and patiently answered all the kids' questions.|
|We made "Gak" out of Borax and glue. Woodjie's has food dye, but Rose used pink glitter glue.|
And here's a video of feeding time. I'm wanting to say that this is an American toad but I could be wrong on that one.
Then we walked about on the trails for a little bit, but it's still a bit cold and we'd been out for a while, so then we went home. We've just become members, so you know we're going to be coming back soon.
