Have you ever noticed how many hats you wear as a mom?
Mom, Teacher, Nurse, Chef, Negotiator, Taxi Driver, boo-boo kisser ;), maid, the list goes on and on.
And when you add “farmer’s wife” to that mix, life seems to fly by. Whoever said that living in the country was the slow life certainly wasn’t doing any work. Especially this time of year. Right?
I get this question frequently:
What is a normal day like for you?
First off, is there ever a normal day when you’re a homeschool mom and work in the family business? I would love to know someone who has them.
I’m always at a loss at how to answer this… So I always seem to end up saying something stupid like:
Well, I’m a full-time mom with three kids and we homeschool and we farm.
It doesn’t cut it, does it?
The excitement and different challenges that each day brings is what I love best about farm life. Pretty soon, we’ll start processing chickens every week, then the garden will start producing (i.e. canning season), and then there will be customer pick up days and tour days…I could sooner pick out a single star in the sky and explain to you which one I’m talking about than to tell you about my typical day.
If I said, “Every day we do school, clean house, run laundry, and cook meals.” You might think that my existence is entirely regimented, but when we start adding in all those other things…that’s when life really gets exciting. 🙂
So, here are some pictures of my “normal” day. ha!
