Hobby Farm for the bus buddies

So when your children are in a Special Education Program here in this district they get to ride a bus. The bus comes to pick them up right at the house. It is very nice.

Anyway the kids that all ride Brother's bus together get to be buddies over the course of the school year.

This year the bus driver and the bus aid wanted to have a get together for all the kids on the bus because a lot of them will be going to different schools next school year.

I was a little hesitant to go but, boy am I glad we did. I went with my friend and her child that also rode the bus with Brother. It was so awesome. It was the bus aid's farm and it had quite a collection of different animals.

There were bunnies, cows, emus, pigs, turkeys, guinea pigs, chickens, goats, horses, and ducks. It was amazing and Brother had a total blast.
He loved feeding the calves--I told him that is what I did as a kid growing up on the dairy farm.He couldn't believe it--no really, he couldn't...

He wanted me to hold the bunny because he liked it but didn't really want to touch it.

He was so happy he couldn't stop giggling!

Brother got some chicken feathers and was so excited when he found "Rain" (the paint horse from the movie, Spirit.

Her real name was Daisy and she adored Brother... she even let him put the feather in her mane like an "Indian horse" and gave him kisses!! Made his whole day!!
