Farm Field Trip

Thursday I chaperoned Brayden's field trip to 7L Farms here in Wiggins. We had such a great time! I was so impressed with the activities that they had planned for the kids. We started off talking about the difference between dairy cattle and beef cattle. Then the kids got in a pen with some sheep and goats and got to pet them.

"When do we get to pet the puppies?", Brayden asked Mr. Batson.
"What puppies?"
"Those ones over there."
"Those are baby goats, son!"

Haha...I was laughing so hard. But it's easy to get confused when you've never seen a baby goat before! The kids got to make butter out of cream, practice milking a fake cow, watch a man shear a sheep, and then see how to make yarn out of the wool. We had so much fun, but we were all tired by the end of the trip.

Here's a glimpse of how tired we were.

And one of these days I'll quit being lazy and post our Easter pictures.
