Home Depot Class Field Trip

This is our second class trip this year. The first class trip was an IMAX movie The Polar Express back in December. We were unable to go because The Cisco Kid got sick. He has seen that movie many times but what he missed most was riding in the bus. Needless to say he was very excited to go on this class trip so he could hop aboard the bus. This was also the first time Chaperones were allowed to ride with the class. Usually we had to have our own transportation. I could defiantly say, I will never ride the bus again. It had to be 90 degrees and sitting there with 40 over excited loud seven year olds was not the way to go.

At first I thought, Home Depot for a Class Trip. Not very exciting! We go to Home Depot all the time, so we know that store like to back of our hands. Home Depot did a very cute job keeping the children entertained. The theme was all about gardening and they were very generous with making sure all the children went home with a bag full of garden goodies.
They let all the children pick what flower or vegetables seeds they liked. The Cisco Kid loves great BIG sun flowers.
All the children's names went in the flower pot and since The Cisco Kid was the teachers assistant yesterday he picked the winning names. The winners won tomato plants with pots, garden tools and flowers. 
Home Depot also gave Mrs. S a very large assortment of flowers. 
Then we all went on a tour of the garden department and he explained the difference between annuals and perennials.
Next Field Trip..... Alligator Farm.  Now that should be fun!!!
