I have a new respect for all those exciting excursions we took as kids to exotic places like Prairie Village and...well, Sexauer Park because today we took 100 2-5 year old kids to the zoo! It sounded like fun and it was a perfect day for it, but honestly it was a bit crazy. Finding seats for everyone, trying to keep track of their little backpacks, and getting them on and off the bus with steps much to large for them. Fortunately no mishaps except for some kids stealing other kids' lunches (because of course, none of them could remember what their backpacks look like!)
Supposedly the zoo we were going to (Carbarceno) was a "friendly zoo" more like a reserve where the animals have freedom to run around...but you say potato, I say zoo. It was nice though to get out of the school a bit and to enjoy "Flight of the Pheonix" with Dennis Quaid which the driver put on for us in English on our way to and from the zoo to get us pumped up. Woo hoo. Go Denny.
