Mr Chiots and I don’t have children, so our “homesteading kids” are our nieces & nephew. I went out to the farm where they keep their chickens with them and they were super excited to show me around.
Our little nephew is like most boys, he loves playing in the dirt, so gardening is a fine hobby for him.
As most of you know I have a whole passel of children and I will say that I think without a doubt raising them in the country, around animals, the garden, and nature is just about the best gift I could give them…and myself!
They are great help in the garden…
They feed the animals…
Out of mama’s tea cup…ewwww!
They are pros at checking the fences…
And picking their own breakfast…
They help haul hay!
And even make bread!
Yes homesteading kids work hard and play hard!
And sometimes…just sometimes…they even kiss the camel!
At least the weird big ones do!
