O Christmas Tree...

Z had a very exciting and GREAT first week at his new school. (After much prayer and consideration, we enrolled him in a new school.) We went on his first ever field trip to the Christmas tree farm on Tuesday. Even humid, rainy weather couldn't put a damper on our fun day.

We started off at Brain Gym where Z was the flag helper for morning assembly. Then we were off to the tree farm. The kids loved picking out a tree, seeing a stick house that the Big Bad Wolf blew down, visiting the Enchanted Forrest, enjoying a hayride and then eating their lunches on the trailer, roasting marshmallows, and playing on the playground in Fort Tranquility. There were also all kinds of animals there--geese, a llama, goats, chickens, a pony, and a very friendly dog. Z's favorite part was probably getting to use a "real saw" to help cute down the tree and yelling "TIMMMMM-BERRRRR" as it fell.
