Billy's Class Field Trip To The Zoo.
Yesterday we took Billy to the zoo in Clinton, another town about 40 minutes away from O.R. It was a small zoo called The Ponderosa Zoo. They have many animals from goats, kangaroos, Zebras, camels, turtles and many more. I think it was not that bad for $6 admission fee.
Actually, it was one of Billy’s school programs and parents and siblings were invited too. I am so happy that dear hubby was eventually able to get the morning off and drive us there. It was after many days of seeing my bleak face since he said could not make it and probably should just let Billy miss the zoo visit or ride on the school bus. I have no problem with him riding on his bus as usual because I fully trust the teachers. What made me feel so sad was when I think of him in the zoo alone, without his parents, so sad. I have no doubts his teachers are there for him but still not the same if we are there. And I definitely don’t want him to miss the fun his peers would get at the zoo.
There are about 12 parents showed up with 3 guys including dear hubby. It was really fun. Nice to see the grins on the kids faces while riding a pony. Billy has his pony riding time too with dada held his hand tight while it moving. He seems to enjoy the short round and round pony ride….hihi! Other than the pony ride, the kids were also allowed to feed the animals. But most of them including Billy have chosen to feed the ducks. :D
We spent about 2 hours in the zoo and left early because dear hubby still has to attend his division meeting. After dropped us by at the house, he went to his meeting and before 4.00pm rushed home for a meeting with Billy’s teachers. Yeah, what a hectic day it was. But overall it was fun and productive day.
