I tagged along today
on a kindergarten field trip
to a working farm.
The animals are very used to seeing
gaggles of giggling kids.
Still, we told the kids to stick together
and follow the farmer.
We came upon a field of sheep
and a chorus of high-pitched bleats
from their little lambs.
This little girl
(a modern-day Little Bo Peep)
just couldn’t help herself;
she made a run for it,
leaving her classmates in the dust
to commune with the sheep.
Very sweet.

(I also had to share this cute game of

“follow the leader” below)
