David showing off some of his insects
Abigail said she would rather find berries for the chickens!
Throwing "candy" to the chickens (yes, I enjoyed it as much as the kids did!)
Abigail especially liked that they were in a fence, so she could enjoy them "safely"!
After we exhausted the local insect supply,we dug up a clump of pampas grass that Karen bequeathed to me. The kids got into the action, too.
After that, we went inside to clean up, eat lunch, have dessert, and for the rest of the afternoon Karen and I looked at pictures and chatted while the kids alternately played and got nosy around her house. :) We ended the day with one last foray to the chicken coop because David insisted that we should check for eggs again...and the kids were delighted to find another half-dozen or so eggs waiting for them!
We had such a great day! A wonderful end to our *thirtieth* day of school, and a great beginning to our new science chapter. Thank you so much, Karen!!!
