~My Reason For Our Blog~ "You will have significant experiences. I hope that you will write them down and keep record of them, that you will read them from time to time and refresh your memory of those meaningful and significant things. Some may be funny. Some may be significant only to you. Some of them may be sacred and quietly beautiful. Some may build one upon another until they represent a lifetime of special experiences." — Gordon B. Hinckley

Tree Farm Field Trip
Finally a day of sunshine, but don't let that fool you, it was still pretty cold. The second graders have been studying plants and trees this quarter in science so they were able to go on a field trip to the Tree Farm. It isn't too far from the school so we were able to walk. The kids were all so excited to be outside all together. As we walked the wind picked up which only made the air colder. We were given the tour of the Tree Farm and how it all works, shown the different kinds of trees, lots of plants and don't forget the flowers. The were encouraged to bring their parents back to get their Spring plants. As we left they were given a little pansy as a souvenir. It was a nice field trip with so much to see, smell, and learn about. It was too bad so many of the kids were so cold with the wind continuing to picking up. We headed back to school just in time for lunch.
This field of purple flowers was on our walk near the school.
