Not Back to School

This is what homeschoolers do when public school starts up again...
They visit the empty zoo and make exhibits at a play table. FOR ALMOST AN HOUR. Their PATIENT mother sits by and marvels that everyone's getting along...

They paint their faces (Like an Apache*, Mom!) and use plastic carrots as weaponry...
They discover that crocs aren't the best for balancing on branches...They construct elaborate forts with sticks and tarps and rocks...

They enjoy a gorgeous day at the zoo without the crowds.

They drive home discussing what they learned about wolf scat** and how long it takes for a chicken to hatch from an egg.

All in all, a great day.


*Why an Apache? Why? I have no idea. Sorry if it's politically incorrect...

** That's 'poop' for the unaware. Just in case..
