Em is just recently back from six months of homeschooling with my sister and the cousins in Hawaii, and we're going to take advantage of this ongoing flexible schedule. Since she won't be missing days from a rigid public school schedule, we're going to take off on perhaps our only chance to do the big wool fest together before she returns to public school again.
She's been my best helper lately out in the pasture, working with the sheep and alpacas, scritching the dogs and herding the chickens. She has a keen intuition with the animals and we have a great time together. (OK, I have a great time... she comes along fairly willingly.)
|Empty Hay Bunker. Don't be fooled by that hard-packed junk in the bottom.|
|Full Hay Bunker. The difference is clear.|
|Apparently, after you stuff yourself with hay, you chase it with some tasty dirt clods.|
I can't wait.
