Farm Day is my most favorite day of the year. I can't believe it's over. It is a lot of hard work but worth every minute of it. Since Mrs. Estes moved to 3rd grade, I am now over it. Talk about stressful!! This year Mrs. Cavannah, Mrs. Maddox, and Mrs. Ables helped so much. I couldn't have done it without them!!! We were also very blessed and 4 of the high school FFA guys came and helped out. They were awesome and I pray they get to come again next year. Now, back to how awesome farm day is. The kids get to go to farm life where they work on farm chores such as shearing the sheep, feeding the pigs, gathering eggs, building/mending fences, painting barns, planting, fishing, etc. This is usually a favorite. We also visited Mrs. Wishy Washy, Old McDonald, Mrs. Cavannah and her beautiful horse, Flash, built a cow out of one of our friends, did a couple of relays, planted flowers and beanie babies, and visited some baby farm animals. Let's just say that they could barely hold their eyes open by the end of the day! I have posted lots of pics or our awesome day!
This is a picture of our build-a-cow game. We used it while learning about the different parts of a cow. Then we completed a Venn Diagram showing how we are similar and different from cows. Below these pics are pics of Taylor's new piglet. I am so in love with that little thing!!!
