More chèvre

finding the source

Micah’s class had some more goat activity, although it wasn’t goat cheese like last time, but rather wool.

 Susan was one of the meres-de-helper for the trip. I think she really wanted to go as her penchant for car sickness with its accentuated sensitivity during this pregnancy was a great combination for a bus ride up a narrow winding mountain road

I always thought Dr Seuss invented these

.  Basically they got to see an animal-to-wool life cycle.  Of course everything just seems so much more spectacular when your in a high-alpine meadow (where ‘alpine’ actually means Alp-ine) in the beauty that we are surrounded in here.
