The "Back to School" Countdown

Why do I hear "The Final Countdown" music playing?

So, we take Miss Emily up to the school today to meet Mrs. Hendershot, her Kindgergarten teacher...we had to practice saying Mrs. and not Mr. We also had to answer the question, "what's the difference?"

Mrs. Hendershot is a really nice lady, and it turns out that we've met her son and husband, as they've been here at our farm before buying some cheese, usually around holiday time.  Emily did great, marched through the office doors..down the hall, and to her classroom. Then we walked into the classroom. My child went from a confident little girl, to an unusual growth on my leg.  We had to literally pry her off!

The funny part is, back in March when we took her up for registration, she cried when we had to leave, she had that much fun. I'm having some really scary visions of our first day of school. She's already stated that she wants to ride the bus. Wonder if she will be getting on of her own free will? Hoping that she warms back up to the idea of school by the 30th. Fingers and toes are crossed.

I've also broke out the camera today. Well, I should admit, I actually found it. It's amazing that I lost it in the first place. I don't know how I do it, but I lose things. All the time. And forget stuff. How early does a persons mind go wandering??

We've found ourselves "blessed" with about a dozen cats. They are cute. So, I took a few pictures of the littlest one. I call her "Chubby". She is very chubby.

Emily snuggling with "Chubby's" sister. We haven't named her yet. And I doubt that
 "Chubby" will remain the other cats name...but it is sticking for now.

I took this picture of one of our "dry cows" the day before she
had her baby heifer.

A baby heifer with her Mama. She is about
2 days old in this picture.

I just can't leave out my "feathered girls". They are so tame, that the white hen
actually came in the house...more than once!

I am off to make something for our lunch tomorrow.
 We are making cheese tomorrow and I like to have our lunch made ahead of time. 

Hope everyone has a great weekend!

Great pics! I hope your little one has a great first day of school. School here in Kanawha County started yesterday for the kids. I am subbing as a braille aide in a kindergarten class right now. I love your pictures. I have only been up close and personal to a couple of cows in my life. They are so cute!
