In spite of spending most of my life in the South, I have never been to a cotton farm. Geographically, Alabama is in the cotton belt, but Birmingham is a steel town and I always assumed the soil isn’t suited for it. Anyhow, Memphis is in the middle of cotton country, and Lexi and I had a chance to explore a farm on a class field trip last week.
It was really fun and the wide open spaces were beautiful to behold.
Lexi viewed the educational moments with a great deal of wonder.
She was eager to experience farm life and the first girl to get into the massive tractor.
It was good to see her having fun with new friends as well.
Even though I will probably remain a city slicker for the rest of my days, I think a trip to the country from time to time is good for the soul. We are so grateful to the family who had two classes worth of kindergarteners out and showed us such a great time.
