I thought I'd post this picture, even though I've posted ones from that event before.
This is a picture that shows so much bravery in Parker.
He is very afraid of noises. Farm animals noises are one of his scariest. Cows top that list. Not long ago he went with his class to a dairy. I didn't have a lot of hope that it would go well. Last year when we went with his class, he was so upset he could barely take it. We had to just get away from the cows. This year he still plugged his ears. But this year he also petted a cow and tolerated it without a lot of whining. He coped with it and actually had a good time. I was so proud of him. The funny thing that happened was that the farmers name was something else, but Parker insisted on calling him, "farmer Dell," you know, like the song, "Farmer in the dell". That guy is too funny. They also had ice cream and I told his teacher he wouldn't eat it. What did my boy do, he ate the whole thing! Way to go Parker! I'm so proud of you!
