Last time we went to dig for diamonds, was 2010. Blogging can be so great because all I have to do to find out when we did something, is look it up on the blog.
Here are a few pictures of my children the last time we were there.
Yesterday, our homeschool group took a trip to Crater of Diamonds. We had a pretty good size group gathered for the field trip.
The weather was beautiful. I was afraid it would be chilly because it has been in the mornings, so I made everyone bring a coat, but by 10:30, they could take them off.

Then we went out and started digging. There was quite a few people out there digging. I cannot imagine people out there in the middle of summer when it is over 100 degrees! 2 hours worth of digging in the sun in the 70's was enough for us. The children had a great time and brought home lots of rocks, mostly jasper and sandstone. Chelsea does not have class on Friday so she came with us too.
I took advantage of the props and having the children together and snapped a group picture.
After we left the park, Chelsea bought the children Sonic for lunch. It's nice to have a big sister who spoils you from time to time. We had a great day!
