life among the beasties

Cass's class went to Ross Farm last week, and I went along, bemused at the number of people who recoiled when I admitted I'd never gone before. 'But....you've never been?'

Well, no. But he's only a first-grader! And I didn't grow up here, remember? (Now if you want to talk about Mackinac Island, I'm your girl....)

Anyway. Gorgeous place. Even if you're the unlucky kid with the Mom who keeps forgetting to pack snacks.












Cass loved it so much he wants to go back this summer. But this time, with snacks.

I love visiting farms, and historic farms are all the better. BEAUTIFUL shots.

Last time I was there, I bought a barrel with a lid, and used it to hold the big garbage bags. Worked a treat for many years.

Now I know who to call if I ever get up to Macinaw!

I just volunteered to go on a class trip with D next week. Then I remembered that I have to make lunch and snacks for him and ME! I am eating all of the time. I may just need a pack sack just for our food! :)

Hey, motherbumper took her kid to the farm yesterday and didn't pack her a lunch. So you're not the only one. ;)

Like MamaTulip said: SNACKS ARE OVERRATED (and in a pinch, roast a lamb or cow... WHAT?)

I love Ross Farm *sigh*

I've never been either, and I've covered a heck of a lot of ground in Nova Scotia over the years. Maybe this year........
