Last Tuesday, part of our homeschool group, Bayou Cajun Homeschoolers, went to the US Post Office Main Office for a tour to learn the ins and outs of the postal system. Another group from our homeschool group will be touring next week.
The main office is located across the street from the Federal Court House.
Here’s part of our group minus some parents who were taking pictures.
Outside there is a mechanic shop where they work on the postal trucks.
These are the different types of carts that the postal workers use to load up the mail for delivery into the sorting cubicles for each postman and to their trucks.
This orange cart is full of mail for the hearing impaired. They receive this mail free of charge.
Getting to watch a postman load up his truck and drive off. While out for delivery, the postal workers are allowed a 10 minute break and a 30 minute lunch break.
Going back in for a little more of the tour.
My friend, Allison, carried Isaac around for me while we had the tour. Doesn’t he look content?
Thanks Allison for your help!!!

Here’s some of our monkeys. Look at the homeschool dad enjoying his time at the park.
Just a swinging!

We had a great time at the field trip and the park. Hopefully next week we vwill have great park weather as well because we plan on joining the other group at the park after their field trip for some more picnic and play.
