On September 6th, I met a large group of homeschoolers from all over Ohio to meet at the Zoo and it was a great turn out. I had over 125 people signed up to come – it was the largest field trip I have organized to date but it went well.
After I paid for us as a group we could enter and go on our ways, with a group this large keeping us all together would not have been in our best interests. We have a zoo pass so we had planned on going on the Dinosaur Island ride while there this time and it was fun but not as educational as I was expecting – except that there were lots of millions of years theory – that of course we completely overlooked and ignored.
Well, keep scrolling down to see more pictures from our field trip…..
There are many more pictures but these were the ones I really wanted to share. We had a great time. The only thing that really detracted from the trip was the two women who decided my children couldn’t read the sign or were in someway hard of hearing in the lorikeet area about only opening 1 door at a time and they began yelling at us to not enter – I kept telling them we weren’t opening it but they continued to yell at us. Eventually, I said yes, we can all read the sign can you please go in so we can enter. It was crazy really. We even made it back home in time for my oldest to make it to her first dance class of this school year.
