So Daryl, kids and I headed down last Wednesday to farm sit for Maggie so she could attend her daughters wedding. Mia has to be one of the most beautiful brdies I have ever seen -picture are posted at : http://bundaflicka.blogspot.com/ .
Kids quickly learned farming is not for the weak of heart or stomach - they learned the joy of seeing healthy little lambs and goats bopping around and the heartbreak of finding a dead critter.
They also learned that Daddy is amazing and can deal with mean roosters! LOL Mean rooster 0 -Daryl 1
They hauled wood, water, grain and hay to various parts of the barn -stopping to talk to kitties, chickens, ducks and of course Lindsay's beloved white boys.
We were even greeted by Maggies resident ghost Lydia who stopped by to say Hello in a happy voice. We hope she knows we love the farm and are thrilled to be able to help out whenever possible.
All too soon Maggie came back and we made the ride home to Canada. Farming is definetely hard work but the joys are so apparent.
someday maybe I feel so blessed to be able even in a small role to be be part of Maggies Farm
