Yesterday we had the amazing opportunity to spend the day with some friends on their farm. We joined six other mamas and their children for a tour of the farm, saying good morning to the ducks, feeding the sheep, milking a goat and watching the pigs devour their breakfast. The kids had a great time and we moms did too.
Once the farm chores were done we were welcomed into Katie's home for a day of wool fun. We washed wool, we carded it, we dyed it and we tried spinning it. We are all newbies trying things out for the first time, we had some successes and some...oh we need to work on this a little more. Spinning is not as easy as it looks.
The kids played, the moms chatted, we played with wool, we enjoyed a pot luck lunch and we shared time together. It was a perfect day.
