The Amazing Reese helped chaperone for Yellowstone Academy's rodeo field trip this year. Of course, all the kids loved him. The first thing one of the kids said to Reese when she saw him was, "Hey! Down here. You're tall."
They loved Reese for protecting them from the scary kids (aka baby goats) in the petting zoo.
They loved Reese when he gave them piggy back rides.
They loved talking to Reese, and climbing on him, and they loved eating ice cream, too.
They had fun planting pretend seeds and watching them grow and "sort of" learning about farm life.
These two kids were NOT afraid of the kid goat. His fur was soft.
Getting to share a few hours with these kids was a delight. Of course, Reese being Reese made it fun for all of us. My favorite things....holding hands, laughing, eating and sharing a turkey leg (and funnel cake) with the kids, and having Reese there to share the whole experience. After we all devoured the turkey leg, we saw a live turkey, and one of the kids said, "That's what you like to eat."
And to top it all off, on the bus ride back to school, one of the girls looked at me and said, "Your hair is grey, but you're not old. You're young." Bless her heart.
