Yesterday, we had a field trip to Olive Garden. What a fun trip that was!!
We learned all about wine. We learned about how it’s made and how to pair it up with what you’re eating. It was very informational!! We also learned about the different types of pasta. Also, the fillings. There was taste testing of the dessert menu. The lemon cheese cake was to die for!!
The kids got coupons for a free meal. They got coloring books and some other stuff. We haven’t seen it all yet because Suzie, who set it up, took the box home without knowing it was full of goodies. Her daughter and Miss K are good friends, so we’ll get it. Just gives us something to look forward to!!
Taking the field trip in conjunction with a unit on Italy or Romans works perfectly. After the field trip, Suzie and kids came over to check out my file folder games. The kids all played outside on a very beautiful afternoon. The 2 homeschool mom’s sat around discussing different aspects of homeschooling, record keeping, new legislation that OK wants to pass and other things. It’s always so fun to network and learn from others!!
Now I’m off to finish my lesson plan for CCD tonight!! When I get home tonight, I’ll add a picture of our field trip!!
