I decided to do something fun to distract the children from the fact that dad was no longer home all day long. So we headed to the Zoo. I love Hogle Zoo and so do my children. We had fun digging for dinosaur bones, even though Dax cried every time we walked past a dinosaur. And we had some exciting experiences with the animals. The tigers were very active. One was bathing in the water and another was pacing right in front of the glass. Then he would turn and look at the glass (I don't know if they can see through it or not), and all the children would squeal because he was so close! The gorilla came outside and climbed up right when we happened to walk by--this is exciting because Mark loves the gorillas.
Anyway, we are having a great school year. Randy is busy and we miss having him home all day, but we like the routine of life that somehow melts away in the summer. Here are some pictures of our first day of school.
