Faith had her very first field trip this week.....she's in 2nd grade and has never been on a field trip until this week (another reason I am LOVING this new private school we put her in!)
Earlier this week, we went to Magnolia Gardens, the oldest public gardens in America. You can check out their website HERE
We loved it there...they had beautiful scenery, amazing history that dates back before the Civil War, and gorgeous landscapes! Why haven't I been here before??? It's only 20 minutes away from my house!!!!
Just check out these pictures.....
That alligator sure is pretty WAAAAAYYYY over there.....he was at least 6 feet long....thank goodness he was FAR away.
They also had a petting zoo, which was everyone's favorite part of the field trip. These animals are so used to people, so you can walk right up to them. This rooster was about 2 feet away from me!! Isn't he gorgeous?
I liked the pigs....and Faith did too....they were so ugly, they were cute!!! (and FAT as pigs too!) ha!
Look, it's Thanksgiving dinner!
Faith took a liking to this deer...even named her "Lisa"....(.Lisa?!?!?!?!?)
Faith's 2nd grade class with the teacher....we LOVE the teacher!!!!
The little girls in her class are so sweet, fun, and get along so well!!!!
My sweet girls took a break from tree climbing to pose for a picture!
The best part of the field trip was getting to spend some one on one time with Faith.....being a "temporary" single mom of two kids, it's hard to get any one on one time with the kids lately, so this made my day to get to hang out with Faith. She's such a fun kid and I love being with her!!
I think I may have had more fun on the field trip than she did! ha!
