Happy Cinco de Mayo
We've had quite a busy weekend; field-trip safaris, opening day at the Coshocton Farmers Market, First Communion, and Hopewell preschool visiting the farm. We are exhausted.
The field trip to the Wilds on Friday was brilliant. We got to see free-ranging herds of various endangered antelope, rhinos, wild horses, cheetahs, various birds, and giraffes. It was less than an hour from home, which makes it a great resource for us. If you are ever in east central Ohio I would recommend it.The Wilds
Saturday was the opening of the Coshocton Farmers Market. It started raining at 8am and rained until 1pm. The Market was open from 8:30 until noon. It was miserable. Still, it was good to be there and begin the process. After that we came home and watched the Kentucky Derby. Always a good time. The kids made hats and we all picked horses. None of us won, but it was fun.A Rainy opening day at the market
First Communion went very well. Lots of family and fun. Nutmeg went to Columbus with us and was a big hit. When we got home the chickens feasted on scraps from as far away as Cincinnati. Saving kitchen scraps for the chickens is getting to be a family competition.
