Our kindergarteners took their annual trip to the Fort Wayne Children’s Zoo, which seems to be a right of passage for every kindergartener in northeast-north central Indiana. I love this day: watching the excitement of all the kids, especially those for whom this is their first and/or possibly only visit. They are so excited and everything is interesting to them. Kindergarteners can be quite exhausting, with endless questions and chatter and tying shoes and messes to clean up and tears to dry. However, they are also at an age in which they are still filled with wonder and excitement and a passion for learning new things. We have a great class this year, and I love these kids. Experiencing the zoo with them was such a blessing!
