Course d'ecole

Today Pat worked from home and watched Muriel while I accompanied Rowan and Niamh on a course d'ecole (field trip) with their preschool to a nearby farm. I'm still not exactly sure how I got roped into this one, and I was a little stressed out about it, but it turned out just fine (as is usual with things I stress about). It was hot and the kids (and adults) were exhausted by the end, but they had a great time.

They each got to make a pain au sucre (basically a sweet roll):

some of the kids weren't sure about these dancing chickens:

brushing and riding a donkey:

feeding sheep:

petting rabbits and guinea pigs:

It's hard to believe that today was Rowan's last day of preschool. In two months he starts kindergarden--in Switzerland! Both of those things are a little mind boggling to me.

  1. does it make you feel any better to think that if you were in the U.S. he'd have another year before starting K? different way to look at it??
