Andrew and his friend Hailey going on the dairy tour
We had a good time on Andrew's school field trip. It got off to a rocky start because the school only planned for 1 bus to take 3 kindergarten classes, their teachers and parent chaperones on this trip. Yeah that's almost 8 people on one bus....I don't think so. Because of this we ended up leaving the school almost an hour late once a second bus finally arrived. The kids did great while waiting though and weren't too impatient. Once we were there Andrew's class ate lunch and then we were off to visit the barn and see all the animals. After that we went on the Wizard of Oz hayride followed up by a tour of the dairy barn. It was really neat to learn about the dairy cows and the milking process. They have 700 cows that are milked 3 times a day! We also went through the barn that houses the newborn calfs. The kids enjoyed seeing the cow equivalent of a kindergarten class :-) Once we were done touring everything the kids were able to go out into the pumpkin patch to pick out their own pie pumpkin to take home. Despite the cool weather and the crazy wind it was a great day and I am glad I was able to spend it with Andrew without Ava. Big thanks to my good friend Jen for keeping Ava for me that day!!!
