That was after the long bus trip to the zoo, during which (it was said) that Elisabeth pulled the emergency exit latch, causing the bus driver to have to stop to correct it. Although it was rumored that Catherine actually did it and blamed it on Elisabeth. Otherwise I understand the trip was uneventful. But Elisabeth was very, very disappointed to learn she was returning in Mom's car.
Anyway. . . . much later: This would have been great if it were a real fawn, but it was bronze:
After strolling around the zoo and eating lunch, the two kindergarten classes and the morning and afternoon pre-K classes took over the entire large playground like a horde of miniature pirates.
Catherine got a flamingo-shaped pen in the gift shop, which naturally broke in the car on the way home. Elisabeth selected a little plastic bobcat and kissed it several times. There was a cage of two very cute bobcats but those photos were blurry.
Fun times! We'll be back next year after we've graduated to kindergarten!
On the way back I dropped off my landscape entry in the Eagleman Art Show at the Dorchester Arts Center. I wasn't able to get the cycling painting done on time, but maybe next year. Starting in September I'm looking forward to SEVEN uninterrupted kidfree hours on most weekdays in which to get my workouts done and work on my paintings (and probably overseeing some house renovations or an addition as well).
