Last week, we took a quick trip over to Deanna Rose Farmstead. I love being able to go during the week. Monday through Thursday it is free, so I don't feel bad about only going for an hour or two. Molly and Charlotte love visiting the animals and running around.
|We checked out the one-room schoolhouse to practice for kindergarten. I told Molly that Gigi went to a school like that. I'm not sure she believed me.|
|The requisite picture sitting on the cow outside the cow barn.|
|Happy on the swing!|
Next, we actually went to feed the baby goats. However, I couldn't take a picture of that because my hands were full protecting the girls from the crazy baby goats. A couple jumped up on Charlotte (hooves on shoulders) and almost knocked her over. And the others were obsessed with Molly. They completely (not exaggerating at all) soaked Molly's shirt and pants as they tried to eat her clothes to get at the bottle. It was hard to both protect the girls and stop laughing at the ridiculousness of the predicament. Therefore: no pictures.
|But, then we went to the playground, and Charlotte rode a turtle.|
|And, Molly rode a squirrel.|
Next up, we had to get haircuts to get ready for school. Charlotte is perfect at sitting for hair cuts now. Both girls love going.
|The hairstylist braided Molly's hair in a special way, and now Molly wants me to braid her hair that way for her first day of kindergarten. Um, crap.|
|Look at that. Not a tear in sight!|
|Molly said, "I'm holding a watermelon!" and I had to take a picture for my Dirty Dancing-loving self. "I carried a wantermelon?!?" It just makes me smile, though Molly really wasn't sure why I was insisting on capturing this moment.|
|Sisterly love. Can't beat that.|
Looking at that picture makes me a little teary right now. Ugh. I'm a mess.
