today was an EMO day.
I guess I had a lot on my mind!
After much discussion we decided to get rid of the fishtank. We have all spent many hours enjoying the fishtank during meals or while working at the table. But sadly, it must now go away.
Mommy and Daddy moved the dining room table out of the way for the man who was buying the tank from us. Emmerson and I enjoyed sliding around the room all morning until the guy showed up.
Posing for a few pictures for memory reasons.
Showing off all my favorite fish and things in the tank.
I am going to miss all the algae! Oddly, I was the only one in the family that enjoyed it!
The ops of the tank was finally removed many hours after the work was started. Mommy kept Emmerson and I out for most of the day to keep us from under peoples feet.
I liked going out and checkin in the buckets and barrels in the guys truck to say goodbye to EACH fish.
Finally all gone!
Now to paint the ceiling and walls and reclaim out dining room.
We are going to buy some Ikea shelves and put in more storage for my homeschool things and a desk to work at too! I am convinced I am getting a frog… but Mommy and Daddy keep telling me otherwise.
Today we took a long drive up to Brooksville to meet up with some friends for a day on a farm.
Golden Rainbow Ranch may just be my new favorite place to visit. We learned all about the farm rules and then were turned loose! 🙂
We got to hunt for eggs.
I LOVED the bones.
The hayride was awesome.
Smell that sweet hay!
I fed the goats may times.
This guy was my favorite. He followed me all over the place.
You have to watch out where you step or your shoes will bring home goat droppings.
Hey Buddy, Hey Kid!
Quite the goat whisperer.
Emmerson even joined in the conversation.
I got distracted by a vine. I was swinging like Tarzan until the vine snapped! 🙂
Miss Ali, who own the farm, quickly became my best friend. I had to show her everything!
She was so kind to oblige and allow me to lead for a while.
We took a fun hay ride around the farm and got the lay of the land.
Even their poodle got into the mix. He can ride the donkey!
I liked talking to the horse.
After lunch we went on an egg hunt in the barn. I found lots of eggs and shared them with all of the other kids.
I found goats sleeping in a water trough. I thought that was HILARIOUS!
I led some of the kids through the woods looking for eggs. Of course we didn’t find any.
We fed miniature horses.
I was fascinated by the bone yard. A lot of the bones were from animals that the farm dogs killed. Some were from Miss Ali’s personal collection.
I really liked feeding the cows. I filled their entire trough with hay!
All I wanted to do was to milk a goat. Miss Ali tried really hard to convince me but i chickened out at the last second. Maybe next time!
The older kids were being silly and pulling people in the little wagon. I had to be a part of that.
We had a big hay fight and then sat down for a break.
Wrapping up the day. It was so much fun. I got to bring home an egg that i colored and a neat picture frame art project. What a grand time we all had! 🙂
