Much to the dismay of my older boys, we have a tradition of taking pictures outside our front door on the first day of school. It's a fun way to see how much the kids have grown from year to year by checking how tall they are compared to the door.
After taking pictures, we did a little math.
For some, math can be a bit of a challenge.
But she got it!
We met some other OE friends for donuts and then headed out to the Oxley Nature Center for a first day of school field trip. We thought it would be fun to take a little hike on the nature trails.
(My daughter is quite the fashionista with those arm warmers, doncha think?)
But approximately 30 seconds after I took that picture, it started to rain. Then it started to pour. It poured for an hour. We poked around the nature center waiting for the rain to stop...but it didn't stop.
There is a lot of cool stuff to touch in that nature center! The working beehive is particularly interesting.
The staff there was great! They answered all the questions our kiddos had, and our kiddos had a lot of questions!
We had such fun! I think I'm going to like this!
