I just wanted to stop by and share a few quick iphone photos I took of the National Heirloom Exposition that we went to yesterday. We didn’t have nearly as much time as I would have liked to walk around. After unexpectedly meeting up with some family who farm up in the Sierra foothills for a long lunch, we had to race around before it was time to pick the kids up from school. It was a beautiful and uplifting place to walk around. Just look at those tables of produce! We took notes of all the new things we’d like to grow next year.
Those of you who know me, know we educate our children at a Montessori school. The St. Helena Montessori school has greatly influenced our new middle school program…can you believe it, all their 7th & 8th graders not only take care of their farm but also take a 5 week beekeeping class and take care of 10-20 hives! Pretty incredible.
I also fell in love with some shetland sheep. So sweet looking and such soft, soft fleece!
