At our schools auction one of the favorite items is the "date with your teacher".
One of the kinder teachers has a farm with horses and goats and the chickens and ducks that the kids raised in the class until they hatched! One of the best parts is that the kids get to go WITH their teacher, in their car, to the farm. Yes - you get to be with your teacher outside of school.
Frances got to go last Friday and had THE BEST TIME. She rode horses and then, due to the rain, they had a campfire cook out in the stable. She wore her cowboy boots. Maggie, Henry and I were so excited to pick her up as we wanted to see all the animals too.
When we got in the car Frances said "mom, I think that might have been one of the best days of my life".
