Many of you have asked where in the world I've been.

All I know is that after 7 plus years of blogging and a different lappy, which I don’t like, I seem to have lost my blogging fervor.

Someday, when you least expect it, I will post again.

For those of you still waiting I say thank you.

Meanwhile, I am rather prolific on twitter. Find me: @KeethaB

Takin' the Monkeys to the Zoo - - -


7th Grade zoo field trip.

Those who shared a ride with me,
Three boys and one mom.

Our capable driver-mom

Whole class waiting to go into the zoo

A favorite - - - the shark exhibit

Petting sharks

Yes, they're real live sharks


Can you see the orneriness?

This walrus seemed to like people

And we liked him too

Under the sea

Waiting for the dolphin show
Those who DON'T want to get wet

And those who hope to get soaked

See no evil, hear no evil, speak no evil

Time to take the monkeys home

And leave this little meerkat behind

So now was that a school class or a Sunday school class?

I once taught seventh grade in a private school. Some were so grown up and some were still babies.

looks like a fun trip! what zoo is that?!

Keetha Broyles said...

This was my seventh grade Life Science Class from school.

It is the Indianapolis Zoo. Great place!!!

Thanks for mentioning my new header picture!!! I LOVE it too - - - it says "home" AND "vacation" to me all at once. That might sound like an oxymoron, and I suppose it is - - - but who can figure out why it is also true????

The zoo. With 7th graders. My, you ARE brave! Did anyone have to wear a "hat"?

Keetha Broyles said...

LOL Groovy - - - that was my SIXTH graders.

No, no one wore a "hat" - - - but one young man, I'll let you try to guess which one, turned into a SQUIRREL on the way home.

I loved your zoo pictures! I have been trying to get together with an Indy friend up there for weeks, but either rain, or a clash in schedules keeps pushing it back! Hopefully soon! My little guy will love it if we can ever make it happen!

Too bad you don't know a school group to "tag" along with - - - that makes the tickets WAY cheaper, about half I think. We paid $6/person to get in, teacher free!!!! WOOO TO THE HOOOO for being the teacher!!!
