February saw the return of field trips, thanks to energetic young homeschooling families who are sharing the labor of planning and seeing through events. We've enjoyed taking part and making new friends.
This week, we headed to SLO for a tour of Cal Poly's Dairy Unit. It was the perfect week to visit with new calves dropping regularly. We watched one less than an hour old trying to walk, and enjoyed petting countless others. It would have been nice if we'd hit the barn at milking time, but the Poly students certainly won every kids' heart by closing the tour with dishes of ice cream.
