Yesterday we went to Green Spring Gardens for a field trip and "Garden Sprouts" class. The kids got to start out by singing some bean-related songs and hearing the "Jack and the Beanstalk" story. Then they did a craft (gluing beans on a paper, in the shape of the first letter of their names).
Next, they went outside for a stroll around the gardens and got to plant some beans and peas.
After the class was over, our playschool kids burned off additional energy by scampering around a pretty gazebo in the courtyard and racing back & forth across a big lawn.
It was a really neat place! I'm glad we went.
Some errands were next on the agenda for us. We needed some bigger pots for our tomato plants, so we picked some up and replanted those when we got home. After dinner we took advantage of the warm evening and took a walk outside. We're waiting for the fireflies to start showing up; should be pretty soon!
