Ain't No Flies on Us!

Submitted by Linda (aka Mrs. Wallace)
This past week we enjoyed our annual kindergarten trip to Amy's Farm in Chino. Though the state budget issues have affected us greatly, I am blessed at my school to have generous parents who donated cash to cover the cost of our bus ride. After all, can you put a price on a kindergartner's first ride on a school bus? (Those bus rides aren't quite so fun as an adult, except to enjoy watching the students enthralled with the bumpy-smelly-singing bus ride!) In the picture above, my class is waiting for Teena the Cow to walk by. And here she comes......Teena is 14 (70 in people years), and is a Brown Swiss. She is also a great-grandma!
My friend Alek is petting a turkey in the petting zoo. She was very pretty, and allowed all the kids to touch her beautiful feathers. I heard some interesting comments about Thanksgiving dinners after they spent time with her.
Noah is petting a baby goat, who is probably nibbling at his shoelaces.This year, we had the privilege of of milking Guinevere. She was very cooperative and had to stand there while all the students gave it a shot.
And here is our infamous group shot. This year every student made it on the trip, which makes this photo super special!

OMG! My kinder class and I went to Amy's Farm last year and there were SO MANY flies we decided NOT to go back! So glad to hear that you had a great time. Early Spring must be the time to go!
