On Friday April 24,2009 Callie and I went to school for the day to visit the first graders. Callie was a great little trooper and just loved all of the children. She got to see more children then originally planned. The pre-schoolers could see her from their window and were trying to guess if she was a reindeer or big dog. Once she went over to them they knew they had been wrong. They have a book called "My Mama's a Llama" so that is what they thought she was. Really that is very good on their part for knowing she looked similar to the animal in their book. Kudos to the teachers and students.
The first graders had numerous very good questions about alpacas from where they come from to what they eat. They also were able to look at some items made of 100% American Alpaca. They were able to handle yarns, scarves, gloves, raw fiber, hand spun yarn, a felted purse, knit purse, and one of the 1st American 100% Alpaca Blankets made commercially in the United States.
It was a very enjoyable day that I was grateful to be able to put on for the students....
