Since our Staheli Farm visit didn't work out we went with plan B and headed on down to the Livestock show. This ended up being a great adventure. We went into the corrals where the pigs were and there were pigs everywhere. The kids loved brushing the pigs and getting to spray the water at them. We were also able to go over to see the sheep. The kids were a little freaked out when the sheep BAAED in their face. It was fun to watch the older kids interact with the preschoolers. They were all so helpful. Of course, the kids also loved playing on the play set and enjoyed our picnic lunch. Thanks so much to all the parents who came out to help volunteer for this field trip.
The kids and I took a little field trip over to my neighbor's house during our Old McDonald Unit. We were able to talk about chickens and pet some pigs. The kids loved it. A big thanks to my neighbor for letting us come over!
