Waldorf School third graders visit the farm

In November of 2009, we had a wonderful visit by the third grade class from the Waldorf School, which is located just up the road from us. They teach the kids about fiber beginning in the first grade, and being a fiber person, that puts a big smile on my face. The kids fell in LOVE with the animals and the animals fell in LOVE with them. Here’s more information (including some photos) about the visit.
