Field Trip

Luke's little Joy school took a field trip to a little family farm last week. It was a really fun experience. It was a private little family farm with some goats and chickens and a few other animals. The kids got to feed the chickens and goats and even had a turn milking the goat. Luke loved feeding the chickens - I think that was his favorite part - but he had no interest in milking the goat. He was standing close by when the farm boy showed them how it happened and got some of the splash from the bucket. They finished off the trip with some homemade chocolate chip cookies and homemade ice cream made from goat milk and honey. I used my sensitive prego stomach as an excuse to not try it. Everyone else said it was really good, but I honestly don't know if I should be eating unpasteurized dairy products while pregnant. Here's some stuff from the trip.

Ya, I don't think I would have tried the milk either. There's just something about milk and goats that gets to me. Luke has gotten a lot bigger since the last time we saw him. I guess it's been almost a year. Time flies. You look great by the way. I'm glad you got to spend some time with your hubby.
