Field trip to the Post Office

A benefit of living in a small town.  Small post office and they know everyone!  So our really nice Postmaster said he would allow the kids to visit this morning to see behind the scenes at the post office.

The room where the truck delivers the mail each morning.

Then it goes to the sorting tables.  The is one area for the rural routes.

Barry shows Joey how to scan in a package.

Brayden gets a turn also.

They all got to use the scanner.  Lydia got to scan the mail delivery complete.

Then he showed them how they "cancel" local envelopes for delivery.

They all got a small stack of letters to cancel.

 Joey really liked it, actually did a lot of stamping.

Lydia got to put a few pieces in the boxes also.

Thanks so much to Barry for letting us visit his world.


  1. I think if I asked my kids "Hey wanna see how the mail is delivered?" They would run to my computer and turn it on!
    Followed back!

  2. Love this, especially since I work in a Post Office! I love being in a small town because we can be so much more human to those in our neighborhoods. I love caring, and being able to do something about it.

  3. What a great opportunity for them, they really look like they had fun! : )
    Following back. : )

  4. How fun so glad you were able to do something like this with the kids. I love field trips. Thanks for linking up to the NOBH
