How often do we wake up and run
Until all the morning chores are done
So that we can have a few moments of rest
To calm our hearts within our breast
Living with animals is such great fun
Even when you’re getting up before the sun.
We wake up at what I call O Dark Thirty every morning to start feeding, watering and milking the animals before the kids have to eat breakfast and catch the bus to school. I think they kids are doing pretty good at this, though there are mornings where I just know they’re going to miss the bus.
