A Bear Comes for a Visit

Pierce's preschool has a bear named Buddy that goes home with a different family each weekend.  This past weekend was our turn.

Buddy comes with his own tote and some outfits.  He also has a few instructions - that he needs a book before bed and sleeps with your child.

So the first night he insisted on reading a bear book.  In fact, every night he wanted to read bear books.  Good thing we like bears so much at Two Bears Farm.

Over the course of the weekend we put Buddy to work on the farm.
First, he had to help feed the chickens.
At first, he was a little intimidated by Elvis.
But after a while he realized she is a friend. 

Buddy helped gather eggs and he found two, one of them was a blue egg!  Blue eggs are from our Americauna hen, Natasha. 

All that work earned some play time.  Buddy had fun going down the slide. 

Then while we worked on the garden, Buddy played with Pierce in our old farm truck. 

We we came inside for the day, Reid confiscated Buddy.  Reid has always had a weak spot for soft furry toys.   

Ah, a busy day!  Time to relax on the porch swing. 

Thanks for coming to visit Buddy!  You're welcome back anytime!

O that is so cute, and I too reckon that buddy will be trying to sneak off to your house often for his weekend trips.

And how cute is that gorgeous wee guy all snuggled in with buddy. Adorable.

Living the life of a bear looks like great fun at your place!!! Wow to those chickens, this is the first time I've seen them, being a new follower. Why Elvis? That is cracking me up! I got some local organic eggs at Whole Foods last week, and two are green!!! I was excited! But little Ella rufuses to believe eggs can be green, she insist's they are dark white! What a good idea for the pre-school to have a travelling bear!! They must be a very good one!
