Preschool field trip to India Post

What's better than a preschool field trip? Well....tons of things actually....but, thankfully, it doesn't take much to get a group of three year olds excited. So this expedition to the India Post branch near the school was a big hit.
The bicycles that carry our mail from the branch out into the community. After seeing these and the way the post was piled haphazardly onto the bikes, I understand why most things mailed to us never make it.
The mail sorting area. Yep, laundry baskets full of it.
The class even got to meet the postmaster. He may have been the thinnest man I have ever met.
Rebekah with her stamp. The three year olds had made Diwali cards earlier in the week. They got to put the stamps on them and post them. Thankfully, ours arrived a few days later. Rebekah would have been very disappointed if it hadn't made it.
Showing off the cards with stamps all ready to go into the mailbox. (Rachel was off school that day and got to tag along. She enjoyed being the big kid in the bunch.)
Into the post box go the hand made Diwali cards.


  1. EDiaA, How is your mail situation? Do your bills arrive OK? How packed were those bicycle baskets?

    Remind me not to send you anything from Hickory Farms 4th class for Xmas!


  2. The only things that make it are the FedEx envelopes my in-laws send with all our bills and important mail. One simple envelope usually costs them close to $80 USD. Thankful for email or we would never hear from our family.
