Friday Field Trip!

Yesterday I went on a field trip with Monkey's class to the Apple Farm. I was told I would have 4 students, I thought easy I have 4 kids. Well I get to school and I had 5 kids and all boys. Wow. I was the only mom with all boys so that was kind of interesting. Because the one mom who had 4 had her son and another boy and then two girls. Her son kept coming to my group to be with Monkey. Another mom had 3 girls and one boy and her boy kept coming to my group as well. I had with me between 5 and 7 boys! My 5 boys were very well behaved and several of them kept holding my hand, it was cute. Here's Monkey ready to go on the bus.
The first thing we did at the field trip was eat lunch. We left school at 9:15 and we got there at 11:30 so the kids were hungry :)

We got to see a movie about apples and honey and the importance of bees with both of them. Then we took a hayride to the apples. Our tractor driver was an alumni of the kids' school, so that was pretty cool.

Then we picked 5 apples each. Now I have 10 apples and they are nice a BIG! After we got our apples we had a snack of apple cider doughnuts and apple cider.

Then the kids got feed for the petting zoo. They had a blast feeding the chickens, goats and other animals.

Then they played at this huge play area with a firetruck, car, boat and different little houses. It was a bit tough to keep track of the 5 boys I had. Here are my 5 boys...
Here is Monkey's 1st grade class all together! 18 students.
It was a great day, beautiful weather and a very fun time. I'm so glad I got to go on this field trip. I'm so blessed. I must mention that my friend Melissa watched Peanut all day for me. She has 4 boys and her youngest will be one in December and she has a set of twins so she did great with the two babies!
