This week E went to Tennessee with a friend’s family. She had a wonderful time camping. Here’s the cabin and it’s view.
While on the trip, E and her friend had the opportunity to spend the day in Nashville. They had lunch at an aquarium themed restaurant…
and then a visit to the zoo!
E wasn’t the only one to get an up-close look at animals this week. J and Z went to the library for Animal Tales, a live animal, “edZOOcational” program. Z was picked to assist the handler with the African Spurred Tortoise.After the program, Z was invited to pet a Woma Python!
At home this week, we have enjoyed these last days of spring observing the daily changes out in our yard. Our keyhole garden science project is growing like crazy! This week we picked the first Hungarian Pepper. The Jalopinos are ready to pick, too! It’s time to be thinking about adding fried green tomatoes to our menu.
Our Zinnias have blooms and we have our first Pansie.
Our Magnolia Tree is blooming too! It smells so good. I brought a couple of petals in to use as air freshener. (Our bathroom smells good, too.)

I hope you had a good week and wishing you another good week next week!
My daughter likes these kinds of field trips, she currently goes to an online school and they do have school functions but sometimes we go out on our own. Last year we went the the wolf refuge in our area very inexpensive but a lot of fun. I will keep following and look forward to updated posts.
A wolf refuge sounds like an awesome field trip! I like inexpensive, fun, and close to home fieldtrips. Thanks for visiting my blog. betty jo 🙂
The restaurant in the aquarium looks like fun. I love tomatoes from the garden; they make the best tomato sandwiches.
I love tomato sandwiches, too, maybe it won’t be much longer.
Looks like a FABULOUS week of learning!
I love learning during summer school, it’s more fun not having to work in required subjects and we can just study what we want to.
Looks like your daughter had a great little vacay! Mine would have loved that tortoise! And what a cool restaurant! Thanks for sharing at Friendship Friday!
True, E had a great time vacationing with her friend. The tortoise was awesome. I would have liked that aquarium restaurant, too. In fact, we have decided to make an ocean mural for our chalkboard wall, so our kitchen will have something like an aquarium. Thanks again for hosting Friendship Friday! 🙂
