I was super privileged to get to go on my second field trip within a month. This time it was with my snuggle bug Pierson. We headed out to Latta Plantation. It was really cool... I mean, literally... it was freezing! :) But yes it was fun too! I had been there as a kid... I thought. Turns out I remembered nothing about it.
Pierson thought the zig zag opening of the fence was cool and guided me through like he was guiding an airplane on a runway.Our first stop was the school house. Man I wouldn't have wanted to go to school back then. Sitting on a hard bench with no backs and FREEZING is no way to learn.
Pierson wrote the letters and copied the spelling on the Dunce hat. He thought it was hilarious that bad kids had to stand on a block with a Dunce Hat on.
Here is his group explaining what they bought and why. They were the farmers so they bought a garden tool and corn seed. Wise beyond their years right?! :)
Pierson really liked this Mule and wanted me to take a picture of it for Maylin (who has a slight obsession with drawing Donkeys. and by slight I mean HUGE). Also there was the fact that this Mule's name was Kate. Pierson's eyes about bugged out of his sockets when the guy announced it's name. Sorry to our dear friend Kate you now have been reduced to a mule. LOL
