Today, just a day after the 1st grade and two days after the 4th grade field trips, was Ashlee's classes Family Farm Day. Her teacher grew up on this farm. They had a ton of activities planned. I encourage you to click on the picture above to see lot more pictures. There was kettle corn, pony rides, face painting, cow milking, hay ride, bon fire, marshmallow roasting, walk through the creek, sheep wrangling, go home wet and muddy... Lots and lots of fun!

In fact, Robbie wasn't thrilled about going. He said when we leaving to go there that he'd rather stay home if we'd let him. But guess who was the last one in the car when it was time to go home!

But mom was TIRED! Three days in a row of field trips, whew!

Today was 1st Grade Field Trip. Yes just one day after 4th grade field trip. Mommy is going to be tired!

It was a fun day. They went to the hospital, the fire station and a company that makes marketing materials. They showed the kids how shirts were silkscreened and then each one got to silkscreen their own shirt to take home. That was a hit with the kids!

Today was the 4th grade field trip to Parker Pioneer Homestead. It was one of my favorite of the kids field trips. There were people dressed in the clothing of the time period and giving demonstrations on how things were done on the homestead many years ago.

Above is a picture of Robbie after tasting some Sorghum Molasses after watching how it was made. If you click on that picture you can see more pictures of the day.
