The first grade field trip was a huge success today! The kids all enjoyed learning about stores. Hearing the owners talk about what they sell, how to come up with a store name, and the most important thing you can do when running a store: Be Happy! After playing at the park, working out at Fit Body, drinking some yummy juice from Roots, and doing some yoga the kids had an ice cream cone from Traditions. I’d say it the best Friday yet! 😊
