2021-22 School Year–The Final Field Trip

The 2021-22 School Year officially ended a week ago, but yesterday, we took our final trip of the year…we visited the St. Louis Aquarium at Union Station, something I promised Chickadee we would do after she finished her science course about swimming creatures. Since Bunny is done with finals, she was able to come along, too, so we had a full girls’ day out!

There were lots of hands-on opportunities…we even got nibbled by “Doctor Fish” and high-fived by sting rays!

It wasn’t too crowded when we arrived, so we had lots of good views and were able to take our time:

We walked around outside for a bit after we were done:

And we even went inside the Union Station hotel to take a look at their beautiful lobby:

This was a fun field trip, and a great way to wrap-up our school year!

Chickadee Thursday

We might have finished school last week, but today was our final field trip of the 2021-22 school year…we visited the St. Louis Aquarium at Union Station to round out Chickadee’s study of swimming creatures!

Spring in the Japanese Garden

Yesterday morning, we took a walk around the Missouri Botanical Garden. It does’t matter how many times we visit the Japanese Garden in the spring…I’m always stunned by its beauty!

Beyond Van Gogh

Last week, Ladybug and I went to “Beyond Van Gogh,” which is currently being exhibited just outside the St. Louis Galleria.

It was really cool to be immersed in his art work…you really felt like you were a part of the paintings, and just letting it wash over you was an amazing experience!

In the end, Van Gogh’s life was so sad, so it was a little sad to see his work, and know the inner struggles he faced. But it was also very interesting to get to know more about him, and see how his life influenced his art.
