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. Due to a limit per tour, we scheduled an additional field trip for more of our group to be able to attend.
Here’s part of our group (1st trip) 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.
The station manager was explaining to the children why the postal workers carry pepper spray with them. They use it to protect themselves from dogs that may try to attack them.
Going back in for a little more of the tour.
Some of the boys marching to our vehicles.
Here’s some of our monkeys. Look at the homeschool dad enjoying his time at the park.
Just a swinging!
