    Kelly G It's like herding cats!

    This is my niece, Sara. She is 8yrs old - and I just love her to pieces! They (my sister, my BIL, my nephew, and Sara) were here for four days...and Sara came with me EVERY time to do barn chores - and she really, really helped!

    Here she is - pink bow and all (I bought it for her at Justice and she wore it ALL WEEKEND!).

    She drives a mean truck -

    So awesome. I think one of the most important things is getting kids interested in this style of living! I think as a culture we are too distanced from our food, energy, etc. and it is important to try and get young people to be involved.
