We've done several units on bees over the past years, but there is so much to know about bees. It's good to always review. And I learned a TON today!
The hives we saw were on the property of a fellow homeschooler who live approximately 45 minutes away on a beautiful piece of property in the country. She keeps her two hives right in the yard near the children's playground equipment, because aparently they've never posed a threat or been aggressive!

Do you love that my daughter and my son actually prepared for this trip by planning to wear yellow shirt/yellow nail polish?

I always thought that I would want to raise bees. I've done a lot of reading about it. But after seeing my reaction to the near misses today, I think I'm probably better off letting someone else raise my honey for me. yes.
After the transfer took place, we had plenty of time left to enjoy the beautiful surroundings and weather.
