The start of the field trips!

Today I went with Zachary's pre-school to Avondale Dairy! They got a tour of the barn, the milking room, learned how they make ice-cream, had a hotdog, chocolate milk and a little ice-cream cone! I was not the duty parent today, so I was able to bring Sophia. Poor girl... she was terrified to get on the school bus (but after getting ON, she was quite happy to be riding the 'cool buh!' She was also petrified of the cows... which I totally understand. She's soooo small, the cows are SOOOOO BIG!! The cows in the milking area are huge, and only about 1-2 feet away from where you stand to walk thru the barn! No wonder some of the kids were scared! We saw the newborns, and older calfs as well. It's a fun trip for sure. I went last year with JA's kindy class.

Tomorrow is another trip... to Zooz with JA's class. I can't bring the kids, so Zachary is spending the day with his buddy Parker, and Sophia is spending the day with Grampa :)

I have photos to share, but they aren't uploaded yet!!

I'll have to update on tomorrow's field trip, and Zachary's pre-school graduation ceremony tomorrow night!! :D

Sucks that you can't bring the kids, although 3 might be too much by yourself at a field trip. I lucked out as K took the day off and so we took Syd who was free. We had to pay for the trip. Schools don't fund that kind of stuff anymore.

You should have asked. ZOOZ has adults come FREE when they require a 1:5 adult:kid ratio! At least that is what the Gr. 1 teacher told me :D It was nice to go free.

WE have an AWESOME parent council though, and the trip was only 14$ for the kids!
