What a day! Both co-op groups went to Lakeland for a fun day of friends and learning. First we went to a great park on Lake Mirror. It had big and different objects to play on. It was clean and we had time for a yummy lunch. Next we headed over to the Exploration kid's museum. It had a kid size bank, theatre, newsroom and Publix. An orange factory in the downstairs was a hit with the whole crowd. Who knew we had a bunch of kids who liked to pick oranges? Finally we went over to the Dairy Factory at Publix and went on a tour. We saw the whole process. From melting plastic into jugs for milk, tea and water to making cottage cheese, yogurt and ice cream. Then we got to eat some! YUM!
