The Week of Field Trips

We may not have had a field trip every single day, but it certainly feels like wePreschool Corner did! Two in one week was quite enough, but we all had much fun.

On Tuesday, the kids spent a few hours with a group of our homeschool friends taking a hike nearby, examining different fall leaves {the foliage is beautiful right now!} and having fun with friends. I am blessed to have friends that were willing to take our four along  – even though I wasn’t able to go hiking. {Thank you guys!}.

Fall foliage-1

Thursday was Zachary’s birthday, so as a family we took a v.e.r.y. long car ride so that we could take a long train ride.

Cass Railroad train-1

There was an older train at the bottom for the kids to explore and pretend on while we waited for our train to arrive at the depot.

Lots of time to look outside the train and see the passing scenery.

Or sit and stay warm with Daddy {and enjoy his day off}.

And the view at the top of the mountain – amazing. Cold, cold, cold, but so beautiful!

Seeing a deer  – close enough to watch it swallow apples and chestnuts and giggle when it happened – the best of fun!

That was just a fun peek into our week!

  1. What a fun week! Well minus the throw up in the car that happened on the way home ;-) How crazy that deer came so close!

    • The park ranger was actually petting her!! She was eating right out of his hand. He has been feeding the mom for about 9 years now and the babies are about 3 years old. So much fun!

    • wow how cool! We had a deer family that lived in our backyard in Salem but we couldn’t get that close. We would put apples and a salt lick out for them. But if we tried to come off the deck they would leave.

  2. open air train cars are so much fun!! looks like a great week!

  3. we’re still in short sleeves over here. I picked the kids up some cute jackets, but i’m wondering if i wasted money. happy Birthday to your sweet little guy.
