The boys had their 1st of 2 classes today at the Lakeside Nature Center. They are learning how to volunteer, sounds kind of weird, but they are learning all the ins and outs of feeding the animals. The only animals they're not allowed to interact with are the raptors and venomous snakes, can I just say "Thanks" to whoever made that decision. This is a great opportunity for the boys, especially Koty, as he wishes to pursue Zoology as a career. Our nature center is pretty cool, unfortunately; with the recent financial issues they have had to cut back on staffing. So there are fewer people to interact with the kids, but those that survived the cuts are very engaging and educated.
