rocky top

a sheep farm in Ottsville, PA

Today the whole family chaperoned the third grade to visit Mrs. Halstead's sheep at her farm in Bucks County. Each child (and parent) got a chance to cut fleece from patient and full-bodied Winifred. In the coming weeks the children will wash, card, spin, plant dye and work Winnie's wool as part of the fibers block.

How excellent that sounds! I wish I could join them!
