We drove in Mike Sweeney’s car.
We listened to Mozart, and you heard the same group you have on your record.
I saw that woman Eliza.
She was nice.
I saw goats there.
I saw the dog Magic there.
I pet her.
She hit Ben with her tail to be friendly.
I saw a rooster there.
I heard the rooster crow.
I saw chickens.
I saw the top door and the bottom door to the chicken coop.
They laid eggs inside.
I did not want to pick up the chicken eggs, so Eliza did it.
I did weaving in that room.
It was a rug.
It was fun.
They were building another house in that big pit.
They have a John Deere backhoe, but it was not green.
I saw that labyrinth.
I walked inside the labyrinth.
I saw boxes they are building for garden pits.
You can plant one yourself.
I saw that little girl there.
We bought fresh eggs from the farm.
We are going to cook them.
We are going to compare them to the store eggs.
I enjoyed going to the farm.
