One of the joys of being a homeschool mom on a farm is that your children get the opportunity to experience “real farm life”. Our son, Andrew, has his very first REAL farming venture started. LAMBS!

I’m sure there are lots of folks out there looking for a farmer.” It was said with grins and winks. “Am I missing something?” It took me a minute, but I suddenly realized that they were … Read the Rest
