For this field trip, they had the SWAT team with their vehicles, the helicopter police who flew in and landed for all the children, and the K-9 team with their dogs for a demo. Each department talked to the children about their jobs, what's their requirements and what they do.
Due to the size of our group, we schedule 2 different days out there. Here's a slide show of some pics from that day.

Our family was interviewed for a special segment called “The Power of Prayer” by our local news channel, WAFB. Click here to watch it.
It just so happened that this aired right after our 3rd anniversary from Rob’s accident which occurred on July 3, 2012. We are doing great and striving to press on as the Lord has called us to do because there is much work to be done. Rob is back to working 40 hours a week and goes to the YMCA to exercise for his therapy twice a week. He continues to gain strength and endurance. Also, he is teaching our 7-11 year old Sunday School class at church, leading the music during worship, and rotates teaching a quarter for our children’s discipleship training class. We are truly grateful for all of the prayers that have been offered up on our behalf as we continued down this journey. The Lord Jesus is faithful and true. By His strength, we continue pressing on serving and laboring for the kingdom.
The Lord is good,
a stronghold in the day of trouble;
he knows those who take refuge in him.
Not to us, O Lord, not to us, but to your name give glory, for the sake of your steadfast love and your faithfulness! Ps 115:1

In April, we went to the Zachary Historic Village for a hands-on learning experience on how life was back over 100 years ago.
One room schoolhouse
(Here they learned how the kids of different ages learned together in one room along with the different limit supplies that were available to them.)
(They learned about how wagons, shucking corn, grinding corn into grits and corn meal, etc.)
(The kids learned how they had to pump their own water for washing their clothes, hang them to dry on the clothesline, the outhouse, mowing the yard with a manual mower, etc.)
(They learned how the homes were much smaller yet could hold many people, high ceilings for ventilation, iceboxes instead of refrigerators, sharing a room, bathing in a tub with a water pitcher, portable potty in the room, etc.)
