Lydia's preschool class took a field trip to Smith's Nursery last week. Lydia had been talking about going to pick strawberries for weeks.
She was a little grumpy when we got there because she didn't get to pick strawberries immediately. Instead, she had to learn about bees, bee-hives, and birds. As soon as she got her bucket, she was in a much better mood.
Of course she ate as she picked. She actually did a good job of picking strawberries and only needed a little assistance.
Our bucket of strawberries never even made it off of the counter. We devoured them within about a day!
