I've been meaning to take the kids to the zoo this spring, but we were always either too busy or the weather was bad on the days we wanted to go. So finally last week we squeaked a trip in, on the last day of group school for the Portland area (we were hoping to avoid summer-break crowds, and we did!).

|Run, Seddy! That lion looks hungry!|

Another key to our success was having each kid take their own backpack. I was not left holding 5 extra water bottles or bags of snacks, or even jackets and sun hats. I think teach personal responsibility is important especially with a large family. Mom can't do everything!
