Fun Field Trips
Where is that bus going with all those happy children? To Andalusia, of course. It's that time of year again when we get lots of school groups. This week we have welcomed busloads of children from some of our local elementary schools. Today the grounds are abuzz with the joyful sounds of children from Creekside Elementary exploring the farm and learning something about the famous author that used to live here. As you can tell by our website we take our commitment to education seriously. There is so much for children to learn at Andalusia. While admittedly a five-year-old's appreciation of O'Connor's literature is limited, there is so much else here to capture a child's imagination, especially the animals one frequently encounters at this farm. The children are particularly fascinated with the peafowl and the birds, for their part, seem to be be equally intrigued by the children. They 're not sure what to make of 176 kindergartners running around the back yard...and neither are we! At any rate, we hope you have a happy Easter.
