It has been a tradition for several years for COLM to visit Farmer Sue at the Art Barn. We always have a FARM-tastic time, and this year was no exception. We started our visit with a tractor ride.
We toured 'Mr. MacGregor's' garden and Farmer Sue told us about some of the vegetables growing there.
After the tractor ride, we painted under the trees. We all raised our brushes and affirmed our artistic talents!
After painting, it was time to hold some chickens and pet the barn yard animals.
We learned about different types of chickens and all the different colored eggs they lay. Did you know eggs can be white, brown, speckled, green, and even pink? They are also large or small depending on the breed of chicken.
The children really enjoyed petting and brushing the donkeys, sheep, and goats. We finished up our day with a picnic under the magnolias. Thank you Farmer Sue for a wonderful time!
