I could tell my kids we were going to Disneyland or Hawaii and they’d be excited. But, when I tell them we’re going to the farm, they can’t sleep the night before!
Labor Day weekend was filled with family and fun, over at my cousin’s farm.
My kids experience things they never could at home. My son was so excited to tell me about he coyotes they saw at every turn when they were out cutting the hay.
Our literacy lives are the sum of our experiences. I can’t wait to see how a long weekend on the farm helps shape my kids’ literacy lives. I may not see it today or tomorrow, but I know their experiences make a difference.
