Today was Jackson's field trip to the Abilene Zoo. It was a lot of fun. I was worried about it being really hot since they had forecasted a high of 94 but with the wind it was really nice. It is amazing how you view heat after living in a really humid area. A West Texas 94 it a lot cooler than a central Texas 94!
One of Jackson's classmates went along with us at the zoo. Each parent who was there took a kid or two with them around the zoo and we all met up at the entrance at a certain time. It was nice being able to do it that way rather than have a lot of kids all bunched up together trying to see the same thing. Jaci and Tyler really enjoyed it there. Jackson and Tyler loved the alligator and snakes and Jaci of course LOVED the Sophies. (Giraffes) She has called giraffes Sophie ever since I can remember because she had a little baby toy called Sophie the Giraffe. It was the best baby teether and she has loved Giraffe's ever since then. She cried until we went to see them and then cried when we left. I have to say I was impressed with the zoo considering it was Abilene. It was pretty nice for a smaller town.
Feeding Sophie!
After the zoo we went to a park and had a picnic lunch and then an Easter egg hunt. It was fun to watch. I was able to talk with quite a few parent's and teachers and it felt great to be having friendly conversation in person other than over the phone. I have to say that we have been totally blown away by this school and how wonderful they are to each and every child. I honestly can't say enough about how great they have been. I think this is going to be a great place for the kids to grow up and get the best possible education!
I'm exhausted and about to head to bed. It has been a busy week.
