A couple of weeks ago, Kalliope and I had a great time at the Riverbanks Zoo in Columbia, SC with a group of fellow homeschoolers.  We arrived on Friday evening, April 17th and got 4 behind the scene tours.  Then we camped out on the auditorium room floor (thank, Lisa, for the air mattress!) and awoke the next morning for 1 more tour.  Then we spent half the day there before heading back home.  The most exciting tour was going into the elephant barn where they sleep at night.  We were lined up against the wall only 8 ft. from the edge of the cages they slept in!  It was such a memorable and educational experience for both of us, one we both won’t soon forget!
