Sugaring at Ms. L's We couldn't have asked for a more beautiful day for our field trip to Ms. L's house.  The sun was out, the temps were in the high 50s and most of the snow had already melted. Our preschool class has been reading books and learning all about how trees produce sap, how to tap trees to get the sap, and then how to turn that sap into syrup.  We spent two or three weeks learning about the process and collecting sap from the maple tree on our playground, and then last week we hiked to Ms. L's house via Southworth Park and the woods.  At Ms. L's house we collected more sap and then got to check out the whole boiling operation at her house.  In addition to watching the sap being boiled into syrup, we got to check out her chickens, collect eggs, play in her big field and enjoy waffles with our newly boiled syrup for snack as well as a hotdog, chips and carrot lunch.  It was truly a fun filled day.
