Work LOVE

Our older kid/adults scored what they believe to be the perfect job- feeding calves.
They get up at 0'dark:30 to go mix formula to bottle feed a bunch of bovines.
We had an impromptu field trip (literally!) yesterday.

First you mix and pour the milk...


...threatening your sibs with whatever implement you have on hand...

...Cap the bottles....


Drive out to the barns, or the huts, or the field.....


....and feed them babies!...Hopefully, they aren't stronger than you are!....


...pet 'em....


...say how cute they are a million times...


.. Sweet talk them into eating...

...and then beg your Momma to add livestock to your life (NOT!)....

We've had a great time joking KB that she is
beauty queen by day,
construction worker by night,
 and field hand by week-end.
Come Friday she'll be back on the campaign trail!

How awesome! I have fond memories of getting to feed baby calves with my grandpa. Those calves can knock you silly while they are eating for sure! Love the photos!

Your pictures remind me how much I need to get my girls back out to the local farm. My dd 5 fondly remembers feeding calves. I need to go back so my other daughters can experience it.
