We went in a little nature center after school today. They have lots of animals.
Gus’s reaction to the tarantula. Lena actually has a tarantula in her class this year, so she doesn’t bat an eye at them. The whole bug room left me feeling a bit creeped out, like one might crawl out and sneak home with me.
They also have some puppets that the kids can play with.
Reed taught Lena the truths of the life cycle of the animal kingdom when his owl ate her opossum.
Big L was there, too. Her favorite was this parrot, who says “hello”. He also shrieks quite loudly, making him definitely not my favorite.
It was a good place to go when it’s too cold to do much else. We’ve pretty much been hibernating, so this was a nice way to get out.
