We helped prepare beds of soil for planting lettuce. My greatest joy was seeing the children break away from their play to come and help the adults. Their help was self initiated with no need for parental coaxing. They were intrigued and wanted to be part of the work.
Feeding the chickens was a fun chore. Zoe and Kiah loved going into the hen house to pick fresh eggs. Sunday morning we ran around the green house trying to catch 3 escaped pheasants. It was so much fun! We finally got them with nets which was the kids idea.
A family of kittens had the children enamored. They cared for the little ones for hours. Their nurturing sides really came out. As soon they woke up in the morning off to the kitten house they would go.
