Hands-on education begins early around here. In this photo, Israel (19 months old) is feeding the chickens. He loves doing that, as well as following me around the yard, dumping water on plants, and digging in the dirt.

Nice pic! I know he's a little Dude, but from that angle and posture, sure looks like my Granddaughter.

That's probably because of his long hair. )

IS this what it truly has come down to? You guys are bragging about your own livestock rather than helping your fellow neighbor.

Donald Trump is gonna win this ****ing election and you will all be slaves to the system. If you ask me, you deserve to be controlled.

I actually sat in front of the screen for a whole minute, thinking "Huh?" and then "OK, troll..."

Although, unfortunately, the results of the elections will affect not only those who live in the US.

What a cutie! My younger son had long, curly hair like that when he was little.

It's lovely when your children can be raised in the self-sufficient lifestyle right from the beginning. My youngest daughter was only 1 when we moved to our homestead. She is 5 now, and a real tough little country girl who loves being outside and loves getting dirty. My oldest daughter was 13 when we moved here, and unfortunately she rarely even goes outside and I have to really force her to do anything at all. She has a soft spot for our sheep, but other than that she makes it clear that she isn't a big fan of the country lifestyle. Of course she can make her own choices in life, but it makes me a bit sad that she can't participate in the joys of this life, because all she sees is the hard stuff: bugs, dirt, hard work, sunburn etc.
