I am dangerous when armed with a laptop and free time on my hands. That's how we ended up at a bee farm in Southern Indiana.
Dennis knows I am all about field trips and just laughs when I tell him what adventures I am cooking up while he is working during the Summer. In case you are new around here (welcome), I am a teacher and am off for most of June and July.
On this particular excursion, we invited our super nanny to join us. Abby is practically a member of our family and I love her to pieces. What will I do when she leaves for college? Just typing that sentence gives me heart palpitations.
Back to bees.....
The tour consisted of an education component --
factory tour --
and candle making demostration.
It was interesting for adults and children alike.
At the end of the tour, the children where allowed to fill the plastic "honey bears" that you see in the grocery store.
They also made their own candles.
It really was a special day and one of the highlights of our summer.
