Back to the Farm

This week Lillian started asking about going to visit Farmer Dan at Full Circle Farm. We hadn't been to Full Circle lately for a variety of reasons, but this week the stars aligned and we were able to go on Wednesday afternoon. It turned out that it was a good week to go to the farm, resident farm girl Monsey was there directing mayhem amongst all the kids with two chickens in the play house. Lillian was very excited about the chickens and quickly got over her initial skittishness about the loose chickens. By the end the afternoon she and Monsey were carrying the two chickens all the way back to the coop on the other side of the farm all by themselves. They also found some bamboo branches which they tried to "plant" on the dirt mound. The sight of four toddlers trying to plant the tree was oddly reminiscent of the flag raising at Iwo Jima.
