Swiss Heritage Village.

We went on a field trip with Deerfield Elementary last month to the Swiss Heritage  Village in Berne.

It was a 4th grade field trip because in the 4th grade they study Indiana History, but I took Ryan as well.

The kids had a great time.  This post will be very picture heavy.

This field trip was really for Rebecca since she is my fourth grader but my second grader was full on into the experience. Rebecca was a bit more reserved (she is so like her mama sometimes).

A really nasty storm blew in and we had to leave, but there was still lots to do. It was a great day!
