I got to with Ryan on a field trip with his pre-school class to Upland Hills Farm last week. Upland Hills is a farm in the area that gives school age children from all over Southeast Michigan the chance to experience rural life. It's been around for as long as I can remember.
For Ryan's trip they focused on introducing his class to the baby animals around the farm. They got to see a calf, lambs, a piglet and chicks. While visiting Izzzee the Mama cow, each of the children got the chance to milk her. When Ryan's turn came, he stepped right up and milked her. Granted Farmer Josh was there to help them all. I was real proud of him. (Thank goodness, Oma didn't have to go up and help.)
