One of the good things about living in a rural area is that there are events like tractor day at the High School, meet a farmer at the grade school & a school library full of farming books.Tonight Chick's school had a meet the farmer night. He even brought along a calf & showed the kids how to bottle feed it. She & her BFF & BFF's sister had a great time & BFF's sister asked many questions & seemed very interested. I texted her Mom to warn her that we had a farmer in the making.
Just think of how many city kids never get to see a farm animal up close & personal & really have no idea where their food comes from. It's a shame that they are so far removed from the food that feeds them.
