Free Labor

The best part about new kids, are the kids. Have I said that before? Maybe. But its true. Even better when they come and work too.Mary and her Mom came to visit today. Not being patient enough to wait for more kids until next week-end, Mary came prepared to play, and work for her fun. It was time to trim Zola's feet, and the extra hands to pass the tools as I needed them were great. And what a patient girl. No complaints about dirt or yuk. Just pleasant chatter about the animals, and questions about what they need for care. Then she helped round up the hens and feed everyone their dinner.For an eleven year old, I was impressed by her understanding and knowledge. She wants to be a vet tech. I'll give her a thumbs up!

Definitely a thumbs up! For an ll-year-old to jump into farm stuff these days is high tribute not only to her but to the family and their strong values!
