Bucket List : Week 1

Since we tend to home-school through the summer we try to make it a little more fun than the rest of the year.  Each Friday this summer is a fun day for our family.  We have a bucket list of adventures to check off as we go.  This week we had breakfast at the University of Idaho Arboretum and then spent the morning exploring.

Sydney and Georgia led the crew on a rabbit hunt.  It ended well for the rabbit.  He got away.

After breakfast we headed to the pond, it's not a terribly long walk, unless your legs are only twelve inches long...or you are extremely pregnant (actually only 25 weeks, but looks like 45).  Jack and I did a great job bringing up the rear.

Success!  We made it to the pond.  Earlier in the week the older kids participated in an herpetology class with a local Christian home-school science foundation.  They loved it and were thrilled when they saw that the pond and shore were filled with turtles!  Sticks are not effective turtle catchers if you were wondering.

When we got home at lunch time Georgia (3 years old) asked if she could have lunch after her nap!  She was worn out!  What a great day.  The only thing that could have made it better was if Daddy could have been there.  Alas, someone has to pay for our life of leisure.
