The first field trip of the year!

Brant's kindergarten class had their first field trip of the year last week, to a Bison farm, located in Hillsborough.  It fit in perfectly with their Native American preparations, and any trip involving a hay ride is sure to be a crowd pleaser!  Daddy got to go along, so it was an extra special day.  And the kids got some up-close and personal time with America's first red meat!

Brant informed me that the "big mouth part" was used as a weapon by the "Indians!"
The students got to touch a pelt and the farm owners told them all the ways they were used in the "old days".

Nothing like sitting on top of a hay bale

or climbing on rocks with your buddy Natalie

And lounging around after a picnic lunch!

All in all, some happy kids.

As for the photos on the hay ride, I'm not sure what happened. But I do know that the Brantleys got to ride on the driver's seat where, "you know Mommy, they used to hit the horses!!"  One of the moms bought some bison meat to cook for the kids to try the next day. I asked Brant how it tasted, like hamburger or something.  Looking at me he shrugged and said, "I don't know!"  Guess we'll have to get some to try ourselves!
