Worms and Dirt

The other day Isaac brought in a handful of worms to show me. Abigail, Matthew, Josiah and Isaac all help with the goats, chickens and rabbits. By the end of the day they are usually quite dirty! There are many benefits to homesteading together as a family and to interacting with the animals and the soil. The link below is to an article that explores the benefits to children of spending time in the dirt.

That was a good article, thanks for sharing!! Evie doesn't do handfuls of worms yet but she does gingerly hold one at a time. Sophia isn't really allowed to hold worms yet because they would all be dead. :-)

Aww... Evie is a brave girl!
