Field Trip and Cow Eyes!

IMG_1091 IMG_1095 A couple years ago I had an eye checkup and had talked to our Dr. about maybe doing a field trip with the kids to learn about our eyes. Dr. Zipprich thought is was a wonderful idea and told me she would look at getting some cow eyes to dissect and she’d let me know when she got her hands on some. Shortly after she got the cow eyes she lost my number and couldn’t remember which family she had talked to.

Fast forward to out next eye exam and we got to talking about that field trip again. Come to find out she had put the eyes in her freezer in hopes of figuring out who she had talked to about it, and she still had them!

We finally got to get together and the kids had a blast…  Thank you Dr. Zipprich for taking time out of your weekend to teach us!IMG_1106
