We enjoyed a beautiful day at Brattonsville, a historic plantation in our community. Today was all about sheep (and cute little lambs!) and wool.
Our friend Asa let us pet an adorable three-week-old lamb. It was so soft and fuzzy!
We watched an old fashioned sheep shearing. Clover and Tim watched from start to finish, but the boys wanted to wander a little. We checked out the horses and some chickens and roosters. We visited with Asa's sister Ruth and mama Colleen.
We also watched carding, spinning, and weaving.
After all of the wool related activities, we took a walk around some other parts of the plantation. Nova made friends with this cat.
I love how Brattonsville always inspires lots of interesting play. The kids dressed up as soon as we got home, and played "pioneers" for the rest of the evening.
