Preschool has been such a blessing this year. It always feels like a marathon when we're there. Me chasing Liam, Natalie struggling to focus and general chaos as 5 women try to herd 7 preschoolers and 3 toddlers through a lesson plan. I generally leave totally wiped out, mentally and physically and wonder what, if anything, Natalie learned that day. However, it's been good for me as it's made me a better educator at home. For instance, Natalie now recognizes the "W" in Walmart and the "M" in McDonalds. (Classy, I know.) In fact, she's recognizing more letters, memorizing Bible verses, making good friends and going on some great field trips.
Our last field trip we went on was to a dairy and ajoining ice cream shop. We got to see all things cow and see how the ice cream was made. Here are some highlights:
The ice cream they make doesn't get any fresher than this...
The preschoolers LOVED seeing the pigs. The farmer tossed a pumpkin in the pen and it broke into pieces for the pigs to chow down on.
Ice cream at 10:30am... Sweet!
