Lambs at School....

On Friday afternoon I loaded up three of my precious babies and made the one hour drive to visit the Elementary school attended by my three Grandsons.

I took 3 lambs: "White Night", because I figured the kids probably thought that lambs are supposed to be white and that they'd be interested to know that the baby rams have horns when they are very little ~ "Kat Nap", because she's so friendly and most kids have heard the term "black sheep" ~ and "Chance", because she is so obnoxiously incredibly friendly and I thought the children would be surprised to see a lamb with her markings.

Needless to say, the lambs were a big hit!

The children were incredibly well behaved (which could also be said for two of the three lambs that I took). Mr. White Night let it be quite clear that he was not thrilled to be away from his mom/on a halter/ and touched by humans!

Sweet Kat Nap and Chance even posed for pictures with the children!

Don't let his expression fool you ~ this little boy kept coming back for more!

I don't know who she is, but I think this little girl really NEEDS to raise Shetland sheep!

All in all, I'd say it was a very positive experience for children and lambs (OK ~ maybe not so much for White Night) alike.

Thank You Nick & Matt for inviting Grandma and her lambs to visit your school! I love you VERY much!!!

    Nick & Matt are so lucky to have you as their Grandmother. What a wonderful thing you did to bring your lambs to their school. As always, but I love the photos.Got my 'sheep fix' for the day. :-)

  2. Thank you, Diane! I always enjoy your visits....

  3. So amazing! My lambies would be more like White Knight, only probably even more obnoxious. I can't believe the little girls were so relaxed and happy with all the attention, out away from their moms! Beautiful.

  4. What lucky and darling children--lambs, too!

  5. thats awesome mom, what a great idea. i bet the kids went home and told thier parents all about it. great idea. i love you more

  6. What adorable lambs! And I love your bumper sticker too!

  7. I bet you had fun too Nancy! Way to go, getting those sheep out there for teacher and the kids to enjoy.

  8. That is too cool. Wish someone had brought lambs for show and tell when I was in grade school!
