It smells like pigs!


We spent Wednesday and Thursday with Grandpa and Grandma. It is always nice to spend a little time on the farm. I really enjoying showing the kids what life is like on the farm. We definitely had a big dose of farm work on Thursday morning. We headed outside to help Grandpa move pigs. Nadia was scared of the big pigs and the loud squeals. So, I had to hold her.... Ben was chosen to help Grandpa. He did a great job. Remember these animals are about 250 lbs, only about 3 times bigger than Ben! He was a little tentative at first, but he figured it out quickly. His comments included, "They are really strong!" and "My knees kind of hurt from the pigs hitting my board." Yep, He's right! Oh it warms my heart, that my little city boy, could actually figure out a bit of farm life.

    Right away I got a huge grin at how lucky your city kids are, getting to taste the life every kid should experience. That is just too cool. We raised hogs, the old fashioned way, and boy the hours spent chasing baby pigs when they would get out, OMG.

    Not to be harsh or anything but do they know that we eat those dirty things? Just kidding. I am excited for Sienna to hang out on the farm. She loves animals.
