12 kids

A half a dozen Grands from each of my brothers (They have more than this…one has 8 and one has 13)

12 kids to the refuge

They are a few months old (in the baby carrier) to age 14.

We went on an adventure to the Tamarac Wildlife Refuge.  They have a program called Wild Wednesday for children ages 3 to 7 but other ages of children are welcome.

Story Time

The program was bugs and butterflies.   A volunteer read two stories about bugs and another gave a presentation on the life stages of the Monarch Butterfly, he had all the life stages in covered containers so the kids could see the progression.

Then we went on a walk and used nets to collect bugs…the kids were very impressed especially with the spiders.

After the bug walk the kids decorated butterflies and made masks.

  4. You have a large crew! That is so fun! I know that grand kids always brighten my days no matter their ages!
    The butterflies are active now! I've been watching them land on my flowers that are in front of the porch.

  8. I love when there are quality programs available like that for children. My sister's daughter homeschools her two. Their art museum offers classes for the children. There are other places they go in the city like that, too. It's wonderful.
