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:
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.
