Bennett Goes On A Field Trip!

Well, Bennett has been in school for a month now and I think it's taken him a while to adjust to his new schedule, but he's finally coming around.  It's a whole new world to him.  He went from being with his mommy 24/7 to going to school and staying from 9:15-3:45, where he eats there as well as naps, receives his therapies, and then rides back home in the "cab".  (The school provides transportation back and forth but it's not a school bus, it's actually an SUV with car seats and 2 adults are on board.)

Anyways, this week his school went on their first field trip of the year-to the farm!  So here are some pics of Bennett on his very first school field trip....

He was excited to run around when we first arrived and eagerly pointed out the tractor that would pull us on the hayride saying "tacker, tacker".

Happy Bennett on the hayride, at first...

And then Maaad Bennett when it started getting too bumpy;)  The guy honking the tractor horn didn't help either!

The girls are tracked out of school this month so they got to go along as well.  They love seeing all of Bennett's school friends!

Fun on the tractor!

Until big sister came to join him.

Not so thrilled when it was time to sit down and make butter.
But sweet hugs from his sweet teacher Mrs. Caroline made things better;)
All in all it was a great day!  I just love his little school and all the things they are doing for the kids that go there. In a few weeks they'll go to the State Fair for another field trip but we'll be out of town for that one;( 

We're so thankful that Bennett has the opportunity to be a part of such a wonderful school!!


  1. Oh Bennett, I don't like when the tractor gets bumpy either. I feel like I'm going to pop right off the thing. Adrienne, your girls are so pretty. Glad you had a nice day.

  4. bennett so glad you got to go on your first of many field trips. you are such a handsome guy

  5. I just came across your blog today, and I'm happy I did. I love to read other mom blogs especially when they love to brag out their children especially the children with Down syndrome. My son is 6 1/2 yrs old and has Down syndrome and I love to share our stories you can visit us at Bennett looked like he had a pretty good time outside the loud, bumpy wagon ride and making butter. My little guy gets scared of loud noises as well. Fire drills at school were a problem for him at first, but he's used to them know he's in a regular kindergarten classroom. Look forward to reading more about your beautiful family.


I love reading your thoughts so go ahead and leave a comment!
