End of year field trips

One of the joys of homeschooling is the ability to take cool field trips as often as we like and we took 2 in two weeks!  Our first was to Blahut Strawberry Farm.  The kids had a fantastic time. I think they ate their weight in strawberries and then we got to bring home a couple of buckets.   We ate some that night with yummy homemade whipped topping and we sliced some and froze them.

Our next one was to the National WWII Museum in New Orleans.  This was an amazing wrap up to our WWII co-op class (Thanks, Theresa and Carlie!).  We had a great tour guide and the kids were fantastic.  They displayed a wealth of knowledge and had great questions about what they didn't know. (Parents, you were well behaved, too.  Well most of you, boys you know who you are!  LOL)  Our group also had the privilege and honor of meeting a man who was actually in Big Red One.
