Yesterday we went on a field trip with our kindergarteners to Milk School. Milk school. To learn about milk. One thing I already know about milk–it’s gross. But not everyone thinks this. Some people love it:
Especially this cow, I’m sure. She was probably wishing she was a mule deer, or a gazelle. No one does this to a mule deer. She was stuck in there all day, enduring this:
That blue leather jacket he’s wearing came from her sister, Bessie. Kinda messed up.
But it was great to be outdoors with these kids. When no one was looking, we actually ran around together and looked for bugs and got a little dirty. It. Was. Awesome. We got to feed baby cows (called CALVES, teacher), have a picnic, go for a tractor ride, make ice cream, and breathe in the fresh fall air. And we were chauffered by this number which made the trip there and back so freakin’ classy:
Note the detail work in the velcroed-on novelty curtains. What you regrettably do not see in this picture is the flashing yellow, pink, and powder blue light show on the ceiling of this blue beauty that started up every 20 or so seconds. I. Mean. Wow
In other news, we have a wedding to attend this weekend, and we will be doing a little shopping for that and other sundries. A nice relaxing weekend, especially now that we don’t feel like crying every time we step foot outside. We actually had to wear jackets yesterday, which brings a little tear of joy to my eye.
