Even the sparrow has found a home, and the swallow a nest for herself, where she may have her young—a place near your altar, O LORD Almighty, my King and my God. Psalm 84:3

First Fieldtrip: Nicholas and Friends

For our 3 year olds, Crystal and I thought a weekly "fieldtrip" would be great for the boys since their older siblings are at school. Our first trip was to the Marine Center. Eli and Nick sat at the dock looking at the water thinking about what kind of fish lives there.

Next the boys became scientist and looked at different ocean slides.

The "big boys" let Omar studied the fish in the largest tank! There was a cute yellow and clear fish that buries itself in the sand. WOW don't you feel like joining him some days! The boys were allowed to touch a sea cucumber, hermit crab and had their nails "done" by shrimp. We also saw baby seahorses and a baby octopus.
We walked to the Historic House next door and learned all about the creation of Ft Pierce and the kids were able to walk through a house built before electricity and running water. Oh they thought living back then would have been awful, until they saw the "outhouses" which then their opinion changed to hilarious!
