Home Sweet Home…

…That was the name of our field trip on Wednesday to our local Wildlife Center.   The kids learned about animal “habitats;”  what they are, what they consist of, what they look like, etc.  We have gone to several of these classes over the past couple of years, and they are always very good.  I loved observing all the home school kids sitting on their little “carpet squares,” listening to the introductory story book.  I was struck by how attentive, enthusiastic, and excited all the children were.  They gladly participated and seemed to really appreciate the opportunity.

Particularly at this time of year, it can be very difficult to keep the attention of any child and to attempt to teach them anything!  I have worked in the public school system, and several times I have had the experience of being there just before Christmas break!  All I can say, is we’re still here at our “Home Sweet Home,” and the kids are also learning about an even better home awaiting!
