Our Trusty Farmhands

  • Posted by: margaret


While they’re not quite ready for full barn duties, Charlotte and Bea are learning to start their days with chores. Ours is a family farm, and we encourage the girls not only because we want them to learn responsibility, but also because it’s just fun to work together. Watching them, intent on their respective goat kids, reminds me why, when my hands are blistered and my back aches, I keep shoveling or tilling or planting or doing whatever is my day’s project. It’s one of those simple and profound lessons of parenthood: I want to be as good an example for them as they are for me.
