Wow, September already! I love September days. Nice, warm, and summery during the day. Nice, cool, and fall-like mornings and nights!
We have completely 100% finished fencing in the field. The dogs and goats are taking turns enjoying the new space. Caspian will be 2 years old this Christmas and has calmed down so much allowing us to play and walk with him in the field not jumping on us or the kids at all. I am so proud of him. He comes when called and sits for us to get his leash on him. When we lock the goats and chickens up at night; the dogs will protect the field.
It will still be another week or two before the goats move to their new home. We are gradually getting them used to pasture. We don’t want them to bloat. They have spent an hour in the field the past three days. The kids and I run through the fields with them following right behind. They are so funny when they run!
There are 10 new kittens, and they are super cute!
And ducklings-again! This is the third hatching this year for mama duck.
We also have two silkies setting. Their eggs will start hatching on the 11th. Our critters do keep us busy!
Our school year is still going really well. We have been getting in 4 days each week. We had to change our schedule a bit, but I think we finally found a schedule that works for us.
Our day now looks like this:
7:00 feed goats and tidy house
8:00 History/Science/Health(Right now we are working on history & health)
3:00 outdoor chores then free time
Today we have dusted, vacuumed, and cleaned bathrooms. Quentin works all weekend, but is off next weekend so next weekend will be our Labor Day weekend. 🙂
I hope everyone has a wonderful Labor Day weekend!
