Welcome Home Jenny!!

Jenny is two weeks old. And cute. Her dad is a shorthorn (I think) and her mom is a black angus. And she's cute. Jenny walked through the school (and Mrs. Jones' class) to get to her new pen. She got to do that because she is cute.

My first graders didn't get to see her then. A road trip was in order...

Jenny needs two bottles a day. One first thing in the morning, and another in the late afternoon (or as late as we can before the students go home).

Soon all the kids in the school will be involved in feeding Jenny. And they will need to know what to do. Good thing there is a board with directions in the barn.

I think Mrs. Jones did a fantastic job writing some detailed instructions.

I'm on for Jenny chores through Sunday afternoon. The school kids can help on Thursday and Friday, and then who wants to come and help Saturday and Sunday???

I'm looking for volunteers. Are you up for the task?

Come on over and I will "let" you feed and water the sweet, sweet Jenny calf.

Pin It!


  1. You are just like Tom Sawyer! But what a wonderful experience for your students!

  2. I always love reading about your livestock adventures! I shared this on my 5 on the Fifth post. Welcome to sweet Jenny.
    I Teach. What's Your Super Power?

  3. How sweet! Love that the kids get to help out with Jenny. Such a great experience and responsibility lesson. So sorry I don't live closer! I would come by and help out.
