Here are a few pictures from this weekend.  Sorry I didn't get many pictures of kids in action, didn't want to be in danger wet zone.
 But trust me, they had a blast!
 Quick glance at how the day went for the kids.

Our Field Trip to the Thinkery

We loved the THINKERY!
A special thanks to our parent chaperones: 
 Ms. Thu (Samuel's mom), Mr. Tuan (Hai Anh's dad), and Ms. Kim (Tai's mom)!
All of the children had such a fun time.  
We explored, discovered, and most of all had a blast!  
Check out our adventure for the day.

 Our photographer for a little bit.
 Pumping water for a little splash!
 More water?!
 Waiting for a little shower.
 Making music with water.
 This was a hit....water station.
 Teamwork...movement with a hula hoop.
 Watch out!  Here's comes the little chef.
 From farm to restaurant. 

 Future architect?
 Another builder?
 How much does it all weigh?

 Or maybe a future engineer?


Afterwards, we were hungry and tired.  A few knocked out on the bus. The rest was still full of energy! 


We had a nice lunch outside and celebrated a birthday. 
Overall, a great field trip!
