I played hooky from work one day to go with Henry’s pre-school class to Centennial Farm at the OC Fairgrounds. Â His teacher, Mrs. Carrie, laid down the ground rules prior to us entering the farm and then we were off!
First order of business: have lunch. Â Seems that no pre-K kid can make it past 10 AM without some sort of snack to tide them over. Â Once properly fed, the kids started their tour of the farm. Â We saw farm implements, learned how cheese is made and saw some cute newborn animals.
The star of the show was the fat sow and her dozen or so piglets. Â Whether running around and squealing or fighting for a prime feeding spot, the kids all had a great time watching the chaos in the pig pen while mama pig snored away.
The farm tour ended with a good game of chase, of course, and Henry and his buddies laughing, screaming and gloriously grass stained.
