It was an awesome week with all of you, and I'm positive that everyone enjoyed our adventure to Kelly and Allan Kelly’s sheep farm! Kelly, Allan, and their son, Cameron, gave the all three groups a fantastic experience at their farm. They let the children feed the sheep, climb up and slide down the huge hill, and gave the children a chance to pet some of their sheep.
Beginning with our Foxes, we walked from the Ski Lodge to the Kelly’s farm where we were greeted by Nova, the farm’s dog. After everyone got a chance to meet Nova, Allan gave each Fox a piece of bread from the Seaside Bakery. They all fed their bread to the sheep and next, we climbed up the hill that the sheep stand on top of during the winter. It was a very steep hill that showed the kids how strong the sheep’s legs really are!
Kelly, Allan, and Cameron took small groups of Foxes into their barn where they allowed the children to pet the sheep. Waylon and Maleah adored the sheep and how fuzzy they were.
For the Ravens, Cameron gave them some Seaside Bakery bread and they all fed the sheep as well. Next, we walked up to the stream and saw baby brook trout! On our walk from the stream and back to the barn, we had to stop and slide down the hill. Gabrielle, Maria, and Ella climbed up the hill and slid down over and over again.
Later, we went into the cozy barn and played a round of sheep trivia! All of the questions that Kelly asked were so interesting and I’m sure everyone learned something new whenever we finished. After our trivia, much like the Foxes, we went into the barn in small groups and cuddled with the sheep. The Ravens loved the sheep!
Finally, it was the Falcon’s turn at the farm! Like the Foxes and Ravens, Kelly gave everyone a piece of bread and let them feed it to the sheep. After the feeding, it was the Falcon’s turn to see the brook trout. We saw a few, then went back to play on the hill like the other groups had done before.
The Falcon’s played trivia like the Raven’s and they surprised everyone with how much they knew. We split up into small groups and got to play with the sheep. Savannah and Amelia coaxed the herd to them and pet them. The Falcons sure did learn lots about sheep on Thursday!
In the end, it was a week full of excitement at the Kelly’s sheep farm. Thank you to everyone’s respect and kindness last week. This week’s challenges are going to be fun and we can’t wait to see you all.
A huge thank you to Kelly, Allan, and Cameron Kelly for the experience at your farm. The children learned so much and had lots of fun. The children enjoyed it, and so did we!
Yours in adventure,
Sarah, Georgia, Sophie, and Mr. Paton
