We took a break and visited with the Lawler's neighbor, Stan and Delores Thompson. They told us about raising sheep and saw two horses up close! We talked about how and why the flies bother them. Then we found a swing on an oak tree to play on for awhile. Then we headed to Delores's garden and we each got to pick a zinnea. For lunch, we had a picnic under a willow tree down by Claire's pond.
The class is trying to decide on a class pet. Various pets were researched and student's prepared persuasive essays for their personal favorite. Students and parents voted and even though the vote was extremely close...turtle ended up slightly ahead. Tuesday, we will present it to the Cosgrove Board for approval!
