Swamp Adventure, Part 1

I signed Bronwen up for a "Swamp Adventure" class that will meet every Wednesday for two hours throughout March. The class is for kids ages 2-5 and focuses on plants and animals found in, well, the swamp. Today was our first class, and it was a bit hectic to say the least. We arrived and got a chance to look around at different snakes, lizards and turtles in terrariums. Once the class started, we learned that today's class was all about trees. The kids first completed an art project:

After the art portion was over, the teacher took us all outside for a walk around the swamp to look at different trees, leaves, and roots. Here Bronwen is looking around:

Finally back inside for a snack and a chance to touch an animal that lives in trees--a snake! I was so proud when Bronwen touched the snake very gently. She loved it so much, she even purchased a little wooden snake from the gift shop. I asked her if she wanted a bigger one, but she told me no, that this one was "just my size."

I wish I could go on a swamp adventure. It looks like so much fun. I would wear my hello kitty sweater too :)

Only 51 days until we get to visit. I guess I better start looking for some presents...

You'd better get ready Jana, I have a small mountain of presents already amassed and ready for the trip. I LOVE that Bronwen is NOT afraid to touch a snake!
