the acquarium

and last thursday i got to go on a field trip with kaden's class to the acquarium, in camden, n.j.
i was kept busy chasing after kaden, and 3 boys from his class.
luckily the acquarium is pretty small, and all they really wanted to keep doing was going
back to 'pet' the stingrays and sharks. :)


we ended up hanging out with andrew ( a good friend of kaden's, whose mom was also chaperoning)
a good chunk of the day.
we go to church with them...and while they are such good friends, kaden and andrew have never been in the
same class...which we now know is a disguised blessing. :)
they are in the same "pod" this year though, so they do get to  play together at recess,
which has been nice.

( i had cale- left end, kaden- white sweatshirt, and josh and matt who are the 2 on the right end). :)

this fish wanted to eat us. i am sure of it.

we did get to see the penguins get fed.
that was fun.
penguins live where it is warm, not cold, a common misconception.
and...they eat 20% of their body weight, in "restaurant quality" fish and squid,
every day...that is a lot of food in a day!

kaden took most of these pictures. he was thrilled. :)

we were 45 minutes late coming home.
there had been a fatal accident on 95 on our way there,
so 4 busses had to "cut thru" down town Philly to get home in time.
now. that was the confirmation i needed.
why i am not a a) teacher, and b) bus driver became very apparent. :)
it was nice to get home at 3:45 p.m. after leaving at 1:40 p.m.
