It was disappointing compared to when I took my first son a year ago!
I thought it was weird to be outside and watching a tv show .
I miss the old classes about animals or trees and the craft relating to that theme!

It was a great time. Getting the chance to meet new people and go on a night hike to stargaze and learn new coming techniques was wonderful! I would do this again. Every month if it was offered.
