We all had fun, the kids enjoyed all the animals, going for a walk along the sheep pads, fishing for yabbies, patting the lambs and climbing a tree. Vivienne and David showed great interest in our routine activities, and daily life, both of us contrasting our different lifestyles, and we learnt just as much from them. Jamie their son who is 7 had the dubious pleasure of taking a rag, which had been rubbed over the billy goat, home for show and tell. (safely enclosed in a zip lock bag). Provided his intrepid parents manage to travel home with this souvenir, he should enjoy maximum impact in an urban classroom.
And for us we made some new friends.
