We are so glad to be back in the swing of learning and field trips. It’s been such a fun month of learning! We went to visit the gorgeous Mission San Juan Capistrano. I’d never been to this mission specifically, it was quite impressive in it’s beauty and history! I wish I had been able to look at more of it, and take more photos, but…I had a 2.5 year old with me. And the first rule they gave us as we came in was “No Running! No climbing on the adobe bricks! Keep voices down!” Ugh. Those 3 things are a toddlers’ dream! Still, it was a lovely time, and some of the moms were able to teach my kiddos some stuff while I chased that little one all over the place! These might seem scattered, because I was scattered, but here’s some Mission beauty!
They had to sit with an actual class of school kids. It was pretty funny. Kaylan looked up at me at one point and said “Mommy, this is feeling a little too much like school for me.” She is such a home school kid!
The most fun part of this field trip (per my kids) was making their very own adobe brick! They even got to name them and bring them home! Kaylan was thrilled that they use “poop” in the adobe brick recipe, so hers was named “Poopy Pants”. Isn’t that lovely? And Curren named hers Bricky.
And we fed the koi fish for a while. Jordi’s first time. She had a blast. It brings my heart joy to see her blossoming and growing up. She loves this crew of kids that take care of her like she is their own!
