The kids were off track for three weeks, and one of the days we went to the zoo's free day. We were glad it was free because lots of the animals weren't in their cages, and it was kind of rainy and cold in the morning. But it was fun, and totally worth the price!
We waited for the polar bear to go for a swim, but he never appeared. It's my favorite part of the zoo, so we kept going back. Finally we found him out pacing above the pond. He went for a two second swim and then got out and paced again.
I love when my kids are off track, they are so much fun to hang out with. But poor Ethan still has school and feels bad that he misses out on all of the fun.
