Desert Museum Field Trip

We had a lot of fun at the Desert Museum last week! The kids did an amazing job of keeping up, staying with their partner and listening. It was PERFECT weather for our trip!

Our Class (minus 1 Israel), Ms. Jaymee and Junior Chaperones Baylee and Devynn





We started off going through the Desert Grasslands and continued our way through the Mountain Woodland. 





Prairie Dog Watching

The View!

Gabe- Looking at the Black Bear... and sun in his poor eyes

Billy and Prestton

Our friend Jace (age1)  also joined us on our trip.

Feeling what a bear's coat is like.

Walking, walking and more walking

A much needed snack break!
THANK YOU to these girls for helping keep the little one's safe and having fun with us.
