We went with Easton's class to the farm across the street from his school. The kids loved it!
The farmer there cracks me up...each time we have gone he tells these little 5 and 6 year olds about interesting things like: global economy or the dead calf that is in the pasture.
Being there makes me miss Neil farming, then the farmer started telling the kids all about the schedule he keeps and I stopped missing it.
The kids loved these little piglets. The farmer picked one up for the kids to pet and boy did the piglet and the momma squeal about that.
Poor Easton had a terrible time on the farm. His eyes got redder and itchier the longer we were there. When we left I checked him out of school and got him home to take some benedryl. I called that day for an appointment with the allergist and the next week we learned that not only is he allergic to hay, but like every grass or tree imaginable, except pine trees! No wonder he was having a hard time!
Addie loves to go to Easton's class. She especially liked going to the farm and has asked about everyday since if she can go to the farm. I tell her it's closed!
I had to add this picture because you can sort of see the wonderful haircut Addie gave herself...her bangs are not that short, normally! Don't you love her combover!
