Then it was time to feed the baby goats
Next they all helped throw hay for the billies and then came to visit me in the milking stall
They fed the fish and gathered eggs.
We brought the milk into the house and made and ate Chevre - goat cheese on crackers with homemade strawberry jam. It was yummy!
Now it was time to explore a little so Bob brought the adventurers down to the creek
where they cooled off while we moms visited in the AC.
Both Lucy and Dixie loved the children's attention AND the apple treats!
A quick lunch and then it was time to open the beehives. We had to check to be sure a queen was released from her cage. She was, but we were unable to find her. It became apparent that she was not in the hive so we took a frame of eggs and brood and an already built queen cell from another hive and put it into the queenless hive.
Playing with bees is an incredible experience and how much more fun when you can do it without the traditional heavy, hot beesuit and veil!
He even got to point out the queen in another hive.
