Farm boy needs training
Josiah and I have been enjoying each other's company for three whole days. His big brother and sister are off enjoying mini-camp and we have been here racing cars and trucks, watering our small garden, making fresh salsa from all the tomatoes we have at home, and taken our first trip to pick-up our CSA.
This spot is less than a mile from our house and we pick-up fresh veggies and the like on Monday afternoons. The last part of our endeavor was going out and picking a bunch of dill, a bunch of parsley, and a bunch of cilantro. It's funny, but if you look closely at the first picture Josiah is holding a tractor. He is really into his cars right now and we take them everywhere.
Now while this child is being exposed to a farm, he has yet to encounter an animal farm and he is over two years old. He knows with great surety what a cow says, but if you ask him about a pig or a sheep, he will say the same thing--MOOOOOO. I think it is my civic duty to take this child to meet some farm animals this summer. Does anybody know where we can go?
