Week two is already over, and it’s been a great time! Week two flew by, and we learned so much. Our classes this past week involved learning about horticulture, and animal sciences. We took a field trip to the Virginia Tech Horticulture Gardens, and took a tour around the gardens. Our tour guides showed us the ponds with different sized fish, and they were very beautiful. We got in touch with our nature side. The next day, we got to experience and visit all the different livestock farms on Virginia Tech, like sheep, cows, horses, and pigs. We even got to see a pig give birth! It was very convenient or inconvenient timing. We all learned about the different types of animals and their different use in agriculture. Both of these field trips were able to get in touch with the many aspects of agriculture and interested many of the different students.
Our week hasn’t just been all work, and we ended it with a bunch of fun. Saturday night, we went to Christiansburg for midnight bowling. We all dressed up in white or neon colors, and they looked really cool with the black lights. Sunday we went to the movies. Some of us saw Despicable Me 2, and a few saw The Lone Ranger. It hasn’t been all work and no play. A handful of kids also decided to do the “Vermonster” at Ben and Jerry’s. It is 20 scoops of ice-cream, and a grand total of 14,000 calories. All of that was consumed after eating at Red Robin. We’ve had fun, and we’re all excited to see what week three holds for us.
