The children — babies as well as five year olds — were quite brave as they approached the goats, sheep and baby cow, Shetland pony, and an assortment of small feathered and furry friends at the annual Evelyn Street Day School Backyard Potluck last Friday.

The older children got right back on the Shetland pony for multiple rides, picked up the miniature rooster, ducks and rabbits as though they were old friends.

Thanks, parents, for bringing such an amazing assortment of food. The weather even cooperated! It’s quite fair to say that everyone had a great time!
