cheese

We had a surprise for the kids today: a goat cheese maker named Will! He taught us all about dairy farming and explained the connections that people and animals have, the different types of cheeses and the animals that produce them, and the factors that affect cheese production.

He made cheese for us from whole milk that we later got to eat with strawberries and honey.

We had a cheese party and gave Will big props for coming to visit and for sharing.

In the afternoon, while the Undead Goats worked on their rickshaw and the Ninja Cats practiced their lines, the Flying Fish drew out the storyboard for their bird play.
