I don't know if I've ever seen the kiddos as excited as they were today! They've been looking forward to visiting the farm where one of their classmates lives, and he's been talking about it for weeks. Lots of parents and grandparents joined us, transporting their students so we could all make it in one trip.
Ms. Julie and I worked hard to gather all the kiddos together, and to get quiet enough to listen to directions - and the farm rooster crowed loudly. The kids laughed and laughed! I tried again and again, but the rooster had impeccable comedic timing, and kept the kiddos laughing. I thought we were going to need to cook him up for lunch! :-)
When we calmed down and sat in a big circle, our hosts brought around their bunny, Dolly, for us to hold and pet. He was so soft!
P.S. One of the parents that went with us has also blogged about our trip - from a parent's perspective. Check that out here: http://www.pondfam.com/blog/2014/05/ !
