The school-agers (Adventure Club – TAC) interested in photography went out to the Como Zoo to take pictures of animals.  The fable of the week was about the Tortoise and the Hare.  They were to look at the animals and how they moved.  It was a beautiful day – not too hot or too cold.  They also were to take pictures of the different kids in their group.  It was a grand day.

There were fences to look over, some that we had to look through.
