We are fortunate enough to have a local vet school nearby that opens up their training facility once a year for school groups to come and visit the animals. Homeschools are welcome! We were certainly not the only ones to take advantage of this event, as I was blown away by the number of people there! We did have to wait in some lines, but overall it was worth it.
Maribel got to pet a goat, and saw sheep, turkeys, pigs, horses, and cows!
She also got to try her hand at milking a “cow” ..although back in my day they let you try it on the real cow! We were able to watch a presentation by a dairy farm about how cows and milked and got to watch.
There were 8 or 10 tractors out for the kids to climb on and check out. That was a big hit!
Maribel loved our visit to the farm! And Wesley wore his overalls for the ocassion 🙂
We went straight from the farm to our kindergarten readiness program. We lucked out that animals were the theme and Maribel got to stamp and spell out several animals.
