A few weeks ago we took our first official field trip of the school year. Yes, we do occasional nature walks or trips to the local museums but they are all free and we don’t usually get a guided tour. So our trip to Vollmer Farm was our first official field trip of the school year. We went with a small group of homeschool families and got a small presentation about the farm, animals, butter and bees.
The kids had a great time meeting some new friends, learning and playing. Vollmer Farm has a “back 40” that is filled with fun places for the kids to play. It was rather hot the day we went and the kids were getting thirsty and hungry so we didn’t stay as long but they didn’t seem to mind.
