Today we had a field trip to the Environmental Discovery Garden with the Brownies and the Cub Scouts. The field trip leader was the teacher that Joseph had last spring and fall in his Junior Master Gardening Class, which was kind of cool. Miss Erin is such a wonderful teacher and she had complete control of this very diverse group (1/2 cub scouts, 1/2 brownies and 1/2 homeschooled 1/2 public schooled).
Here they are on the bridge. I am not sure what they talked about because grown-ups weren't allowed...
For the trek over to the bridge (about 25 yards from where we started out), they all buddied up. Joseph and Cameron, of course, were immediately glued to each other. Cameron's little sister, Audrey, and Caroline were buddies and Cameron's cousin, Hannah and Libby were attached at the hip all afternoon.
Libby is showing me the rosemary and the "Lamby's Ears".
Joseph knew the answers to a lot of questions, being the Jr. Master Gardener and all.
Caroline is trying out the homemade eco-friendly house cleaner that they got to make. They each brought home their own spray bottle of it, so I think I have some new housekeepers!
The weather was so pretty this evening that we took a picnic over to Towne Lake and then fed the ducks (of course, a cool front started blowing in about the time we sat down to eat).
This is Feeding the Ducks (AKA chasing the water fowl and hurling bakery products at them)...
