Farm Day

Caleb was dipping crackers into the fresh butter he just made for a snack

On October 3rd, I was very lucky to be able to go on a field trip with just my son.  The two of us left early that morning to head to Yuba City.  Our homeschooling charter school was able to have students who signed up go for free.  As soon as we got there we were greeted by others from the school and Caleb was handed a Farm Day t-shirt which  he immediately put on, along with the other students.

All of the kids could not wait to go inside.  The ES in charge of helping with the field trip was given a list of the 35 stations that each school was able to choose from.  There was no way that any school could get to all of the 35 stations in a two hour window, so it was nice to see what was offered ahead of time.  We were able to complete 13 stations, which was more than we thought we could have completed.  Each station that we went to, all of our children were actively engaged and asking many questions.  I thought it was fantastic and the speakers were very knowledgeable regarding their topics.

Our children were able to make a little container of butter, feel wool, touch animals, learn about different types of soil, dairy goats, walnuts, and so much more.  I know that my son really enjoyed this field trip and I did as well.
