No-look portraits for Farm Stay 2

Farm Stay 2 Student Reflections

8 December 2017

By Maggie

Friday was a hectic day. We woke up and had a community meeting, in which we talk about how we can improve the Farmstay. Then we did farm chores, our micro-economy projects, and worked on gifts for our secret Santas, which we’ll be presenting next week starting on Monday. This Farmstay seems to be very into knitting, and by Friday, almost everybody had learned how to knit and is working on blankets and scarves. That  night, we had a make-your-own pizza dinner using the outdoor pizza oven and for a movie night, we watched Zoolander.  After about 20-30 more minutes of messing around, we got ourselves organized and played Tiger, a game where the Homestead is pitch black and you can only tell where the tiger is by the sound of other people’s screams. We went to bed late and woke up today late. We’re all ready for the weekend.

Today has been my favorite day so far. It is the first day that I don’t have to get up at 7:00 to do animal chores. I got to sleep in until 9:00. When I woke up, I took a nice long warm shower. After the shower, I relaxed and played ping-pong. At about 10:00 or 10:30, I went to set up for brunch.

I cooked sausages and set the tables for the meal. There were pancakes, sausages, bacon, eggs, and chocolate pancakes to eat. The food was delicious. I ate 3 sausages, ½ piece of bacon, and two chocolate chip pancakes. This meal was much better than the ordinary cereal breakfast. I then helped clean everything up, while listening to the Guardians of the Galaxy soundtrack. Once the meal was cleaned up, I went outside and played with the soccer ball.

After our free time, we had P.E. which stands for physical expression. For P.E. we went sledding down strawberry hill. It was very fast to go down strawberry hill, but it was incredibly fun. When the time came, we walked back to the homestead for some more free time.

For free time I worked on my science project and did math. Before I knew it, I had to do my daily job. My daily job is to clean and organize the gathering room. I then had some more free time to play ping-pong. I then realized that nobody is playing ping-pong, so I decided to write this blog now. I am going to have chicken for dinner and then go to bed.

Farm Stay 2 Group Photos

Last Monday we welcomed Farm Stay 2. Things are going well, except our internet connectivity has been spotty, so this is our first blog post.

Here are a couple group photos from the first day. As we take more, we will drop them here.

The first night, it snowed and the temperature dropped 40 degrees. Here is a photo from the second day.

Here is one of the Snow Labyrinth that the Prepared Environment Occupation made today.
