Cow Day

Every year, we get a visit from the Mobile Dairy.  The Mobile Dairy is a huge trailer with a Dairy Cow on board and a rusty old COWBOY full of information about milk and cows and all of the processes that get the milk from the cow to the table:   

COWBOY:  Now, boys and girls, why do cows need energy?
FIRST GRADER:  So that people can ride them!

COWBOY:  What products come from milk?  

COWBOY:  Are there any questions?
FIRST GRADER:  Are cows made from meat?

Yay, First Grade!

KAHDEEM: Mr. Bowers, my birthday is this year!
MR. BOWERS: Oh my gosh! So is mine!

(High-fives were exchanged, followed by a brief lesson about calendars.)
