One thing is for sure, raising a little one in the Country is vastly different from the City. The nature, the animals, the farm work all shape and mold the little ones in this kind of environment in ways that don’t usually happen the same in the City. Back in Las Vegas while raising my son, I was worried that he would be robbed at gun point while walking home from Elementary School for his house key and Game Boy because that was legitimately happening there…here, I worry about this little girl with all her fierceness and independence, making her way to the creek unsupervised, picking up random bugs, trying to hug large bovine animals, chasing chickens who want no part of her friendliness, digging up all daddy’s plantings in the garden with her new toddler sized rake and shovel! LOL The list goes on and on but one thing is for sure…raising a little one in the Country is pure joy with lots of dirt and laughs along the way.
I thought I would share some of the joys that I have witnessed with the Little Country Girl in the past week or so. If you follow on Instagram, you may have seen some of these. It is super easy to post quick photos using that venue so I do it often but sitting down to write a blog post and upload photos takes a bit more time….time is scarce in the country when it warms up so bare with me. I have a feeling my writing skills will be put to better use when there’s snow on the ground again and it gets dark at 4:30! Anyway, I hope you enjoy this little glimpse into the Little Country Girl’s Life. A ray of pure sunshine with a little bit of hurricane mixed in for fun.
And, I was able to catch this little video a few days ago. She didn’t know I was there as I low crawled through the raspberries after her daddy told me what she’d been up to. It seems her Galloway cow loves our freshly mowed grass scraps too. She discovered this and now it is a daily gesture and bonding experience between the two.
