Homeschool field trip to N. O.

We went with our home school group to N. O. We had a GREAT time! There were 17 families and over 90 people (adults and kids of all ages)! We did the Aquarium, Insectarium, and the Audubon Zoo--a fun filled 2 days! Thought you'd enjoy some of our pictures:

The boys are holding crickets.

The boys are EATING crickets--barbeque flavor!!

I PROMISE that this is NOT my cabinet!
What a cool (gross) exhibit at the Insectarium!

The girls were worn out at the Aquarium. I am LOVING my new stroller!
So smooth and turns on a dime!

These girlies can giggle!
Jacob is spinning it and the girls are having a BLAST!

What a beautiful ice cream smile.

This was SO cute!
There is a baby anteater on it's mother's back! Awww....

Notice anything funny about this picture?

Sometimes I feel like this poor little turtle... I work and work
through my own efforts only to find myself out on a limb.
I am so thankful that I have a God that won't leave me hanging...

Feeding turtles and ducks

We really had such a wonderful time. We are already planning ahead to next
year's overnighter. The boys had so much fun visiting with friends.
I had fun hanging out with other moms, too!

Hi, Charlene - thanks for your comment on my blog! Were you referring to Inara, standing on the stairs in her "big socks"? She is already home we celebrated one year together over the weekend! Our new little blessing from China is still waiting for us - we hope to travel sometime this fall/winter. Hey - we homeschool, too! In our 11th year! We have a bit of an age range - 32, 22, 17, 15, 3 and our new one turns 4 next month - so for 4 1/2 months out of the year we will have 2 of the same age and 7 1/2 months of the year we will have one year apart in age! Should be easier in school, though - hopefully they will be close in levels! I know it is mean, but I just love the photo of your daughter crying - it breaks my heart!
