Good Work!

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.
