. . . my parents had us children grow a garden and raise chickens. One year we even raised a steer in our backyard for a while. He was rather bad-tempered (I wonder if he understood our nickname for him, “Dinner”) . . .

The Family Homestead, This Blessed Life at Rootsong Farm, Hmmmschooling Mom, The Nerdy Farm Wife, the Countrified Hicks and more. The Pioneer Woman looks at how to balance homeschooling with farm life.
The Carnival of Homeschooling is up at mom SCHOOL. It includes an April Fool’s Day poem:
April the first stands mark’d by custom’s rules,
A day for being, and for making fools: —
But, pray, what custom, or what rule supplies
A day for making, or for being — wise?
-- Rev. Samuel Bishop, 1796
