The torrential rain did not put a damper on the fun that we had on SJ’s first field trip last Friday at Love Creek. While I still maintain that anything with bugs falls squarely in “daddy domain”, SJ and I enjoyed walking the nature trails, looking at the different insects and reptiles and spending time with her classmates outside the classroom.
