Another First

Owen had his first school field trip yesterday. We went to the farm. It was perfect.


We planted a marigold in the greenhouse, we rode a tractor, and we patted llamas, goats and sheep.


We watched a sheep getting sheared, which was surprisingly not traumatizing.


I wish I had taken a picture of the utterly disgusted expression on a little girl's face when Owen scooped up a worm and let it slither through his fingers. There may have been trauma on her part (and, perhaps, the worm's as well).


Owen has a best friend at preschool. When it's time to go home, he says, "Bye-bye, Best Buddy!"

My little man. You are growing to be more beautiful than any marigold, any redwood, any green thing on this earth.

I needed this happy alter-Owen picture today; the farm looks SO much fun!

My children have never been to a farm. :( I love farms. I usually leave with a burning to desire to own chicken, goats, tiny cows, and the like. Petting zoos traumatize my city dwelling children, so, I'm not sure how we could reconcile our dreams, even if we had the land to do it.

What a great day, and how awesome you got to share in it and take pics to. Baby goats, I love them!
The holding hands photo is priceless, and your son's smile and flower offering picture is too. Soak it all in, they grow so fast!

What a great field trip and great pictures. Isn't it fun to live life anew through our kiddo's eyes? Somehow it is more fun the second time around!
