Homeschool fieldtrips

Ok I admit it....we go a little overboard on our field trips. When you live in the city, there's always somewhere to go or something to do. Although the field trips are not in place of their regular schoolwork, we do go on a lot of outings in order to meet our daily requirement of hours. A couple days ago, we picked up Lauren's friend, Caroline Crater, and went to feed the ducks at Eden Park. There are at least a hundred ducks, all quacking and snapping at each other to get my"old bread". With the temp being in the upper 60's, it made our outing very enjoyable. Caleb very much enjoyed all the quacking and splashing of the ducks. Yesterday, we went to Newport Library to see a production of "The Gift of the Magi". In case you don't recall, it's the story of the husband and wife who want to get something extra special for each other. So, she sells her hair to buy him an expensive watch chain and he sells his watch to buy pretty hair combs to put up in her hair. It was put on by the "Artworks" , a division of the "Children's Theatre" here in the city. The actors were very good. The kids enjoyed it, except Lauren couldn't understand why she just didn't call her husband to be sure he had his watch before she cut off all her lovely hair. Well, I was trying to figure out the same thing :)
