The kids are settling in well here in the The Netherlands. As expected the language goes quickly and the kids are picking up so much Dutch each day. On Wednesday, I joined them and drove them +3, to the Kinderboerderij De Bossche Hoeve which is not to far from their school. It is nothing fancy like Davis Farmland but rather a simple, well-run urban farm where schools and families can visit while in the city. It’s still early Spring so they were very busy putting together equipment like a new slides and pavement, etc.
The nieuwkomersklaas of 13 kids learned about the animals, fed them and enjoyed playing for a bit after some hot chocolate inside.
They have an albino peacock, along with some turquoise ones, but unfortunately it didn’t open it’s feathers while we were there. First photo is mine but the second is from the internet web search.
Entry is FREE so you can support by donating cash into the box, buying feed and Soren and I bought 6 eggs which we ate for breakfast the next day.

Thursday, they are visiting a pig farm in Vinkle where they’ll learn about the pigs and make ice cream and if lucky, taste it.
There are several kinderboederij’s in the area, which we will also explore in time. This website has a handy list and information about each one.
