Field Trip

We chose a freezing cold day for a field trip which was 1/3 indoors and 2/3 outdoors. It was fascinating learning and ended up being great fun once we could all move around and stay warm.
First the Crater Rock Museum. WoW!! This is owned by volunteers and run by volunteers. What an amazing place. I want to go back when I can actually focus on reading the labels on the rocks. It is a huge place and nicely presented.

We visited a park where the city had moved a wetland and enhanced it. Very interesting learning from a park employee.
Next was a fun park with so much to keep the kids busy! (We need more play structures at our school...)

As it turned out, today is pouring down rain so the choice of days worked out just fine.
