I want to be a farmer – Part 2

November 10, 2011

in Life On The Farm, Our Alpacas

OK, now where was I? I was so tired last night folks, when I was writing my 1st post about the farm trip. I couldn’t keep my eyes open while sitting at the keyboard. I did something I haven’t done in probably a year. Went to bed at 11 PM.  The Kindergarten field trip was fun, but tiring at the same time. There are two times when a bed feels the best it can possibly feel. 1) When you’re so exhausted you don’t care about anything or anyone around you at the moment, and 2) When your alarm clock goes off the next morning. Why does a bed feel so good when you have to crawl out of it at 6 AM? It’s just not fair.

Moving on…

The kids got to experience their first corn maze.

I have never seen that many 5 year olds together running that fast. It was very funny. All the bright green shirts blended together and looked like a solid fast moving river of green.

Zoe wants a Pony. I think Olivia probably wants one too.

I could seriously love a pony.

She also wants a rabbit.

She has brought home the same book “A Practical Guide To Caring For Your Rabbit” from the school library. Twice.

I wish I could adopt the lady that read stories to the kids.

Because they never act like this when I read to them.


And for the kids… so when they are all grown up, they will know I was there on their field trip.

“let’s git up here in this here wagon and git ourselves on a hay ride! Yeehaw!

Then there was the pumpkin patch. All laid out perfectly.

Today’s kids are so soft.

And the highlight of the day was when a rooster was brave enough(or stupid enough) and wandered out of his safe place.

I don’t think he will be doing that again any time soon.


Part 3 is coming up on Friday. I will explain why you should never go anywhere with me and my mother.

Oh and P.S. –  Zoe wants a rabbit.

P.S.S. – I’m going to talk Hubhunk into getting one for her. And 3 more for the others.

(Maybe we can start a rabbit farm)

P.S.S.S. – What does P.S. mean?

P.S. means post script.
It looks like the kids had a lot of fun.

Debbie November 10, 2011 at 1:58 pm

Deb November 11, 2011 at 12:50 pm

ugh. That means my daughter will send me an e-mail shortly telling me it should be P.P.S, instead of P.S.S, as I have it in my blog!

Great post! I want to be a farmer too and I’ll take a pony or two or three. Both the rooster photos are so hilarious to me. I need some sleep too…

Deb November 11, 2011 at 12:49 pm

I loved the rooster picture too. I also tried to get a video, but it didn’t turn out. Everyone was moving too fast!

Yes it was. The weather was perfect too. Sunny, but with a cool breeze.

Katie November 11, 2011 at 11:12 am

I wonder if I could pose as a fifth grader and take one of these awesome field trips. I might just be a little too tall…just a little. Looks like loads of fun! And I definitely think the kids should get both a pony AND a rabbit, but that’s just me :)

I agree – I just need to talk “the father” into it.

Laura November 12, 2011 at 11:42 am

Your trip looks like fun! I hear a rabbit is a good pet – just get it fixed asap – you don’t need 4,000 bunnies at the house!

Deb November 13, 2011 at 9:21 am

hahahahaha – good tip!
