Our week started out with rain. Lots and lots of rain, but that was OK. We are big fans of mud puddles! Although, I believe my daughter took jumping in mud puddles to a new level when she belly flopped into one!

We began our tour of the zoo with the pink flamingos. Gabriel told us all about the flamingos food and that it was the food that gave them their pink coloring.
We are Unschoolers, which means we follow our sons interest in learning. He chooses what he wants to learn about and how he wants to learn it. One thing that our son has been using for over a year is the Little Passports World Addition. Our son ADORES Sam & Sofia!
Our week began with tree climbing, swings, discovering a patch of wild strawberries, and digging in the dirt!
I went to Arizona for Mother’s Day weekend this year with my Mom. We went to see my sister and my nieces who live in Phoenix and watch my sister graduate from college. No Husband! No Kids! Wait. What?! That’s right, it was my first time being away from all of them. Honestly, I wasn’t sure I would know how to act. I mean, it’s been two years since Jade was born and I have never been away from her. My husband and I went on a cruise once when Gabriel was two, and he stayed with his Nana. Other than that, I have never been away from my children. I panicked a little bit.
On Saturday, we decided to visit an animal sanctuary called Noah’s Ark. We felt this would make a great family outing as well as an educational experience for us all. It is located just south of Atlanta, Georgia. I adore the mission behind this non profit sanctuary. They are dedicated to providing homes to injured, abused and orphaned animals, they provide a place of love for animals with special needs, and they are dedicated to bringing children and animals together in the hopes of a better tomorrow. More than 1,500 exotic and domestic animals call Noah’s Ark home. What’s not to love about that?
