Wheeler Farm in the Snow

All of my kids have attended the same pre-school. I have had one child in this preschool for four years straight. It is run by a wonderful lady in our neighborhood and all of my kids have excelled under her kind and thoughtful approach to being around pre-schoolers. However, my one and only complaint and it really isn't her fault is that every year, during the field trip to Wheeler Farm (a local area farm), the weather is AWFUL!

Today, it snowed. Not just a little but a TON of snow for May. I always agree to chaperon because I am obsessive about my children and there is a river that runs through the property and once again, we all shivered as we walked through the mud from one animal area to the next. The carriage ride was so miserably freezing and all I could think about was getting home and into a nice hot shower.

Only three more years of kids in pre-school and only three more years of freezing, muddy Wheeler Farm.

First of all...it's still April, (lol) even so..still a ton of snow.

Second, I can't believe you braved the weather...

I think we might have mysteriously come down with the flu!

I was also going to comment on the May thing. Next week, babe. We've got a feildtrip to the Tracey Aviary next week and I'm hoping we don't have snow then (first I typed "snot"--I actually hope we don't have snot, either.

i am not a huge fan of wheeler farm--the place stresses me out! i remember your wheeler farm stories with your other kids--sorry that this proved to be the same experience! i am sure that the kids loved it though!
can you believe that the sun is shining this morning?

I went to Red Butte Gardens in the snow. WHEN IS SPRING COMING already?

You are my kind of Mom Janice! I was just talking to a lady in my ward about the Brighton Beehive Camp.. I know I'm not sending my daughter up there when we don't even know any of the leaders.. not in this day and age.
