Today was Parker's very first field trip ever. He was so excited last night and this morning that it was all he could talk about. He got to wear his field trip shirt and everything. Needless to say this morning was wild. When all 4 kids (plus mom) have to be ready by 8 a.m. and dad's already gone to work, it's crazy. On a positive note, I actually showered, had on makeup, and made it there on time today. That rarely happens, especially all in the same day, so things were looking up.
The only thing Parker remembered from going to the farm was that he could milk a cow. It's not a real cow, only a plywood replica with "udders" that you can milk (filled with water), but he was so excited to get there and see they still had them. Next we got to feed chickens and goats. The kids loved throwing the feed at the chickens. Parker was a little standoffish with the goats, but he did like the one with the beard. They also got to jump in the hay bales. This will no doubt kill Parker's allergies for the next day or so, but he loved it.
This kid NEVER looks at the camera!
