With Victor & CJ @ Drumlin Farm



As we careen wildly toward the  looming End-of-School-Year, today I got to chaperone with a shit ton of these little Children’s House Montessori students.  Happily, my charges were primarily ClaraJane and Victor who together are “like cousins.”

After chickens,  eggs,  chick’s,  cows, pony, wild chipmunks and a barnyard cat comes the HAY RIDE (although vine to find out it’s actually *straw*).

The inestimable Ms. Mayya + Co.


Then after a tour of the potable  (“kitchen”) garden, we make BUTTER!

hand made butter


Who knew it was so easy.
1) heavy cream in a closed jar
2) shake until it’s whipped cream
3) *keep* shaking until it suddenly separates into skim milk and butter!
4) spread butter on cracker
5) enjoy!

CJ the butter enthusiast, enjoying her butter.

Then inside to brush and twirl real wool into yarn, and visit the sheep from whom it came, before bus ride home.

    I remember the “hay vs straw” lecture. Sorry I missed the BUTTER! Chaperoning a field trip is always so much fun.
