Wild Connections

Travis' class had their first field trip to Wild Connections butterfly farm. It was especially momentous because it was Travis' first bus ride! I got to chaperone, but I had to go in my own car and it was tough to put him on that bus...but he had a blast. Our day at the butterfly farm was filled with a video, a trip through the butterfly house, a picnic lunch and a scavenger hunt.

The butterfly lady helped them find some eggs on the undersides of leaves to mark in their workbooks.

After their workbooks were complete, the kids were given pieces of melon to hold out and try to attract a butterfly.

Got it!!!!!

Our scavenger hunt team...putting the "wild" into Wild Connections!

We had a GREAT day and I'm so lucky I got to go on this trip with Travis and his classmates!!!
