I had so much fun going with Teyton and his class to the Fountain Nature Center. We saw so many neat things and learned about all of the nocturnal animals that live around the area and why they are important. I don't think that a lot of the parents were thinking though. Hardly any of the kids were sent with water bottles! We did a lot of long nature walks and saw deer, beautiful birds, ducks, geese, rabbits, and turtles. But those poor little kids were so thirsty! I finally got to the point that I wiped the nozzle of my water bottle in between each child and let them have a drink. I know that that isn't the most sanitary thing, but they were getting red in the face, and I thought it was a better alternative to heat stroke! It was a pretty warm day outside! After all was said and done, we let the kiddos get out the last of their energy on the fun playground at the Nature Center. You know that kids re worn out when multiple kids come up to you and say, "Can we please be done playing and go back to school!?" Poor Teyton was so tired. And when he gets tired he is very touchy feely. He especially like to rub ears. He was coming up behind little Brandy and Abigail rubbing their arms and ears. They had a look on their face like, okaaaay, what is going on here? So I had him sit on my lap and rub on my ears while they waited to get on the bus. Hee had a ton of fun though! He wants to go back soon so that he and Kayla can climb the big tree that he found. Maybe if we head out early enough we can see the beavers working on their dams and dens.
