Field Trips, Wild Chickens, and Dragons at the Library.

Now that Farmers' Market is over, we have had Saturdays free which means Field Trips! The weekend before last, we went to our first ever corn maze which was quite exciting. They had choices of different clue papers so we chose the Bible clues. There was also a petting zoo with a really laid back bunny (really laid back), corn hole, and more.

This past weekend, we traveled a bit farther and visited the Warther property in Dover, Ohio which includes the Warther home, The Button House, the grounds, and The Warther Carving Museum. If you live in Ohio and have never been here, I suggest you visit. It is a spectacular place and the man was probably the world's best master carver ever. All trains and factory models are working models and have thousands of hand carved parts. And when you're done, head on back to Berlin for some great broasted chicken at the Berlin Farmstead Restaurant where, like Emily, you can ride the wild chicken.


All this fun and gallivanting around did leave less time for reading, but this week I managed to read a fun book that encourages visits to the local library and ownership of a library card. With both rhyme and repetition, this story, Do Not Bring Your Dragon To The Library, is good selection for both the dragon lover and the library lover in your life. And while it is totally not appropriate to bring your dragon to the library, don't despair, the librarian in the story has a solution.


Well, that about wraps it up for this week. Join me next week for another exciting episode, same crazy time, same crazy channel.
