Another lazy, sunny day here on the Knolltop.
Okay, okay, so now I must confess before Joe Schmoe gets the wrong idea that dairy farming is a breeze and then goes out and buys a farm and a bunch of cows, floods the milk market worse that it already is and discovers I mislead him and then takes me to court for giving false testimony on a blog!
For the record we milk our cows twice a day, I've never gotten a professional massage, pedicure, manicure or mud pack. My boys were livid when they discovered I wrote about them getting a mud pack and massage and couldn't believe I would write something like that. (Obviously they never read this blog!)
I don't have any hired help when the boss goes away, that's why we had children. (JOKE)
The kids have been getting up early on their days off and this morning they were dragging. I'd have to say that Sarah is the most punctual, she has been out there at 6 am every morning. And I'll also add that she doesn't wait to be asked to do something, she sees what needs to be done and just does it. I love that in a kid! Well, the boys are good about that too, but it took them a lot longer to learn it.
Furthermore, after we got all done with chores, which included a fresh cow and a new bull, I came in from the barn and Sarah was making french toast for breakfast! All I can say is Wow!
Dairy prices may be down and things are going to get tougher but when your kids pitch in and take over without complaint to keep the farm running smoothly.....that is worth more than all the money in the world! I'll go ahead and say it.....I'm blessed!
