Zoo School

Jonah has a class at the zoo once a week. It's just for preschoolers and their parents. The kids learn all about a specific animal, do a craft related to that animal, read a story about that animal and play a game or sing songs....about that animal. Sometimes they'll bring one out to pet (when it's a little one like a ferret or hedgehog) and if it's a larger animal we'll walk out to see it. It is so fun and Jonah looks forward to it all week, asking me every day "Can we go to zoo school today?"

Last week the weather wasn't great* here, but Jonah, Bridget and I headed out to zoo school anyway.
I mean, really. When you're this cool...there's no way you can stay home, right? :)

We were the only ones that showed up. Do you think that stopped Miss Jamie? Heavens no!

That's a giraffe head that Jonah's wearing, in case you couldn't tell.

Bridget enjoyed the class too, but when we stopped at Walmart afterward she pretended to be asleep so she wouldn't have to go in.
Okay, maybe she was really asleep. Passed out, in fact. Zoo school takes a lot out of a girl!

*And by "the weather wasn't great" I mean by Texas standards. We thought it was beautiful and just brisk enough to require jackets and even putting our hands in our pockets to keep them toasty warm. But it was cool enough to keep everyone else away from the zoo. We had the whole place to ourselves! :)
