We went to the zoo

A few months ago, we went to the zoo in Memphis, TN. I had been asking to see pandas for over a year. My mom and dad surprised my brother and I with a trip to the zoo.

Pandas are really cute. They don’t do very much, but are fun to watch.

Sheriff’s Office Field Trip

We went with another homeschool family to our local sheriff’s office last week. I wasn’t really expecting it to be that exciting to be honest, but thankfully, I was wrong.

The kids and I both had a great time. They took us through every part of the department starting in the Sally Port (where they bring the prisoners to book in).

Then they showed what each person got while they were there, where they stayed (even showing them the prisoners), the tower where all the door controls are, and the admin offices.

Turner, who is fascinated with the police, asked a ton of questions, including if anyone had done a pit maneuver.

They demonstrated the taser a few times, which made the kids jump, and towards the end they got to check out the cop SUV, including the tire spikes.

It was a great trip; I’m glad we went.
