We went on 2 field trips this week. Yes 2. Homeschool rocks doesn't it?
First we hit The Sweet Factory at Valley River Center. Cyra is setting up a pretend business & she chose a candy shop. We went to see how they have their store set up & what sorts of candy they offer.
We did NOT go with the intent of buying any sweets. We did NOT end up getting candy corn, mini gummy bears, peachy penguins, pop rocks or flicks. No. Not us. We have will power. Yep.
We did however end up getting a tour of their storage area. The young man working let Cyra help him make change & did a great job explaining how much inventory they carry. He also gave her lots of info on how much they have to sell to make ends meet & what sort of maintenance has to be done in the store.
The girls had a great time. Obviously. And it was free. Especially since we didn't buy any candy. =/
