October is national field trip month.
Did you take field trips when you were in school? I remember a few. Most of them were supposed to be educational in addition to entertaining. Not sure how much we learned when we visited the bakery. But, the smells of the vast loaves of yeast bread remain in my memory files.
Maybe that’s why the food I gravitated to yesterday was the soft pretzel.
My field trip yesterday included a trip to the fair where I watched my granddaughter show her sheep and goats.
Afterwards I meandered through the exhibit halls where the 4H and FFA students projects were on display. Amazed, as always, by the skill and creativity of the students.
Like this patio table made by a group of FFA students (I forgot which chapter)
And this unique bird feeder made by one student. I wonder if this design deters squirrels from the bird seed smorgasbord?
And this holiday sign made by the Okemah FFA. I wonder if I could talk them into making me one? Wouldn’t it be pretty at night with lights around it?
Of course I had to take a picture of the tractor on display since my son collects them. No, the students didn’t build this, but they did restore it.
As I was leaving I ran into my adopted granddaughter who had been there showing her pig. I’m sorry I missed her showing, but it was great seeing her and getting my hug.
On my way home I stopped at yoga class, no pictures of that and went by to visit with my son and his family for a few minutes.
All in all a great field trip day.
When was the last time you took a “field trip,” just for fun, or to learn something?
Is there a place or event you’d like to visit?
What was the last field trip you took?
