Field Trip








Today was Kenzie's field trip to Curtis Apple Orchard. Both 1st grade classes went from Meadowbrook so there were plenty of kids. There was also a couple of other schools there at the same time. We had a pretty good time. They played on the playground for a while before the tour started. In the picture above, the kids are listening to a lady from the orchard talk about how bees make honey and how they help pollinate the orchard. Did you know that honey never spoils and you can use it to treat cuts and burns? And that there's bees wax in Skittles, M&M's and other candy so it doesn't melt in your hands. Anyway, after that we got a tour of the back room where they make the cidar and sort the apples to be sold. We got to try their apple cinnamon donuts and cidar-Delicious!! We went for a walk out to the orchard and pumpkin patch and then it was more playtime at the playground for a little while until it was time to leave. It was a long drive and now I remember how much I hated to ride school buses!

Everyone looks like they had a great time. It is always fun to play most of the day. I get sick on school buses too but I think I get sick whenever I'm not driving plus the noise level is out of this world on buses.
