I really have been teaching all this time!

It has been awhile since I’ve shared any adventures in learning with you…. While some of my time got mis-approprated and school took on more “free thinking” than usual – we have been up to a lot at the Gandara Bug Academy.

The End of September was Field Trip time… Daddy was home and we took our annual trip to the LA County Fair. The bugs had to read 9 books and they got to turn those in for ride tickets, (From the Fair – what a $ saver!) so we spent a lot of time exploring the wonderful world of physics while riding carnival rides. Here are a few of my favorites:

Lauren and Douglas on the Dragon Ride. Oh yes, they are all by themselves… for those that know me, thank you I can hear you clapping for me. I prayed the whole time!

Megan rode the baloon ride no less than 5 times… it was about all we could get her to go on!

Ahhh the “new” colored slide was a FAST favorite… Here Daddy and Dougga happily skid to a halt at the bottom of the slide.

Lauren ( again take note – she is by herself) happily comes down!


This was the Crazy coaster and there was no way she was going by herself— so Daddy got the job! Daddy and Doodles rode quite a few rides together!

After the Fair we went on a “Safari” to view animals in their natural habitat…

AKA the San Deigo Wild Animal Park.

This trip was amazing… to hear the kids talk and spout out information at random never ceases to amaze me… and the fact that their information is accurate and inteligent amazed Daddy!

Here are some Favorites from the Wild Animal Park:

My three Bugs, sitting on a hippo!

Here I am, Anthony is hiding in the bushes, do you se him? Ha ha!


Douglas riding the Gorilla on the Merry – go – round!

Daddy and the Goose, looking at bird eggs! This was a great hands-on display!


Daddy gives doodles a better view!

All our field trips got me off schedule, and I had to catch up on the laundry! So school resumed in October with more Dinosaur learning! I’ll share some of those lessons another day!
