Every Monday my kids report to their class about what they did "Over the Weekend." Here is a Farm Mom's report after a busy weekend...
Friday, March 22, 2013
4:00PM: Get the kids off the bus. Finish packing up a few last items and head into Lowell to setup our first-ever Expo booth!
6:00PM: Head to the St. Mary's for the Fish Fry (Yay! I don't have to cook!)
7:00PM: Hubby drops me and my daughter off at my friend's house. She did a presentation on her mission trip to Kenya.
9:00PM: Answer phone calls, texts, gather a few more items for the booth, get kids to bed

3:57AM: My alarm goes off (but I don't get up because I like to push Snooze 2 times)
4:11AM: Eat a bowl of cereal and put on 3 layers of clothes- Spring has not sprung here yet. BRRR!
4:20AM: Arrive at the farm. (I have a 1 mile commute.) Mostly, I feed grain/milk/hay and care for new or sick babies. A few highlights from Saturday morning chores:
|A few days ago our vet put a cast on this calf because her momma stepped on her right after she was born. He is giving her a painkiller and perscribed me to do it for 3 days. So, I had to tend to her.|
|I got to see Pepper giving birth to a new litter of kitties!|
|She had them in the rooster's hideout! He was so freaked out he didn't even crow once all morning!|
