Up With the Baby

This is why we’re able to do all that we’re doing right now…

This amazing daughter of mine and her younger sister take turns getting up at 6:30 every morning to take the baby so I can milk the cow.  Then they milk the goats and water and feed all of the animals while I strain the milk, wash up the milking equipment and feed the baby.  My third daughter helps with the baby in the afternoon and at night while the older girls and I are moving fences and milking.  The boys help with other chores.  And they all do it willingly, and happily.

The other day I asked them if the would want more animals if it meant more work, or if they wished we didn’t have so many.  They answered: we want more!  :)
