FIELD TRIP FUN!

It probably seems like all we do is go out to eat.

Honestly, we probably eat out more than we should!

But, we had a legitimate reason this time!

The homeschooling group we are affiliated with had a field trip planned to Mountain Mikes Pizza. They had a room reserved in the back, plus arts & crafts, and all we had to do was pay for our own buffet lunch. Not too bad since our lunch totaled $35 (and that's including drinks and salad for seven of us).

My friends daughter came with us (who is one of Miranda's best friends), so that totally made a difference for her. Normally it's a lot of younger kids that go on these field trips, and my two older ones get super bored! Well, my oldest son was bored, but oh well, he was there for the pizza anyway.

But, it was a nice break, and everyone stuffed their faces with pizza, garlic bread, salad, and soda!

We were the first ones there, and we were all ready to eat!

Of course, I had to take a "group shot" before we left.

My little guy just said "who are those poeples?" I answered Alicia's kids he said "I don't know Alicia" I told him that he didn't know them IRL he replied "they aren't really alive?"

Ok, sorry! Great pics. Miranda is looking so much more grown up in pics recently.

I totally understand the whole eating out. I don't hardly work and yet I find a way to go out to eat. LOL!

How fun! When I homeschool I would love for us to belong to a group like that! The pizza looks delish and the idea of sending handmade cards to soldiers makes me smile since I am a an army wife at heart and know how much these soldiers appreciate these cards!

Hugs, Susan

One of the best parts of homeschooling is opportunities for activities like this one.
