Around the corner there were several "totems" (off the left - about 12 or 15 more like these two!!!) made from ceramic cups from art class... he couldn't find the specific one he made, but knew it was there... we were falling behind, walking to the pond!
It was a regular park back behind the school... new territory for me... (I'd been in the back of the school, but not out in this part!)... what fun!
Note the "Cardinal" sign on posts - the Clayton Cardinals! You can see Ben and Larry approaching the pond, left side of the fence, above.
They all arrived at the pool, as I was still taking photos! Kaylee, Ben, Alex, Larry, from left.
There was also a turtle in the pond, besides the perch and other fish (4-6 inches, mostly, that we could see. I did catch the turtle coming up to snatch a bite of bread! There, in the middle, he is swimming up, two arms out... use your imagination... it is easy to see!! ;-)
Just outside the pond, there is also a nature teaching circle...
As we left, Kaylee, now in First Grade, wanted to show us her playground equipment. She went swinging along the rings!
Then, went along the monkey bars side rail!!
It was fun to see that the edge of the Clayton playground had a trail that led right over to the Community Swimming Pool and new Community Center, on the corner.
