"If the world were merely seductive, that would be easy. If it were merely challenging, that would be no problem. But I arise in the morning torn between a desire to improve the world and a desire to enjoy the world. This makes it hard to plan the day." — E.B. White

Field trip friends

We hosted Jack's class for a farm field trip last week and had lotsa fun.

They came.

They milked.

They gathered (eggs)

They learned (about farming n equipment)????

They left by noon so that we could resume workin ourselves to a frazzle baling hay.

My wise friend Lori who is a Girl Scout/Daisy leader warned me that I was too worried about all the wee details.
"They won't care."


I obsessed about everything ~ farm lessons, foods from the farm, even goodie bags w/seed packs n goat games.
I scrubbed the barn aisle and critters. Planted n weeded. Cleaned the farmhouse. 

They cared most (it seemed) about the Beagle.
Go figure.

Hope you're all feelin' appreciated!
