One of the activities that we enjoy as a homeschooling family, is the requisite field trip. Today we all made the trek to our local Publix with a gaggle of other homeschooling families for a behind the scenes tour.
The first thing that was required of us, and I kid you not, is that we all had to put on hair nets. It was then that we decided that if we were to ever frequent another Publix field trip, we would chose a location far from where we lived.
On account of the likelihood that we might run into a neighbor.
On a bright note, the hair nets that we received were all NEW. And we were given a stern warning by our Publix hostess that we should NEVER share a hair net. You can bet that I’m keeping my own new personal hair net, in the unlikely even that I should ever be called in for another Publix audition.
We made our way behind the scenes through bakery, deli, produce, and the dairy refrigerator, where the children had a grand time yelling and waving at customers from behind the milk. Thusly unnerving a few elderly patrons.
After a trip through sea food, we ended up in the meat department. The crew in the meat department had a little surprise for the children. And they kept it under wraps…
Until the end of tour. Wherein this was revealed.
Twenty two homeschool children suddenly made a vow to go vegetarian.
Here is Jensen, mourning the mental loss of his morning bacon.
I’m thinking that our next homeschooling field trip excursion should be, say, a jail. That ought to be a tad less traumatic.
