First Day of school
Well today was the actual first day of school. Not yesterday like I orginally thought. Duh! J. was all excited when he saw the new school bus! He didn't want to go to school tho. There's a bully in his class that has been harassing him since primary. I just love it when schools say they have no tolerance for bullies. I'm thinking," yeaah right. What's the scoop with this kid." But J. was the bigger "man" today. The bully started right away. So J. asked him "why can't they just be friends?" The bully actually said that might be a good idea and he'd try. Wow. This might be too easy.
I'm posting a photo of J. walking to his "doom". Too bad he doesn't like school. He is a very bright kid, but it's just not for him.
Well the goats' poop is all back to normal. I let them out in their pasture today for the first time in a couple of days. When they get scours (a nice word for the runs) they have to be put on just a hay diet. So this morning their poopies were normal. They were happy to get outside. It is cold in the mornings now. Brrr. I actually need a jacket to go milking.
My friend, Brad, got a few more goats that were really a rescue mission. So he's trying to get the goats healthy. So he's constantly checking their poops also. Needless to say when we talk or email, the topic always comes to poop. I told him, " We have sad, sad little lives, all we talk about is goat poop." He said in his usual dry wisdom "Well at least it's better than gossiping about other people's crap!" Oh Brad, you're so funny.
I made some cream cheese a few days ago. Plain and I tried lemon-dill. J. likes the lemon-dill.
Here's a recent picture of the piglets just for you Tammy.
Have a Blessed evening
