Post Office

We got together with some other homeschool families and went to the post office. Yeah! A break from "normal" school!
We were led on a tour by the Acting Postmaster. She was a great guide who told us all about how the post office works.

There was a beautiful tree out front that was in full bloom.

Here is a postal worker helping a customer.

They had all kinds of different bins for mail, flats and packages.

Each carrier sorts their own mail in these slots for their route.

It's always fun to take a field trip especially when you get to go behind the scenes to see how things work!

****Extra Credit Question!*****
Who was the first Postmaster General?


  1. I'm not sure who was the first Postmaster but what a great idea for a field trip!
