|On RMan's birthday last month -|
Mike learning that grinding
coffee beans with a manual
grinder works just as well as
an electric one - and is more
|Bless him - he couldn't wait to put on his|
new school clothes, even though school wasn't
due to start for another week.
He enjoys the school so much and has even gone so far as to say he's going to summer camp every day, not school! LOL The school is delightful - his classroom is in a separate wooden structure on stilts - like a tree house.
The head master introduced goats to the school a few years ago. The school has won awards for the goats milk cheese they produce, and the children are also involved with taking care of the goats, cleaning up after them, milking them and making the cheese.
Mike LOVES it!
Natasha tells me that the headmaster has commented to her that Mike seems to have an affinity with the goats.

black stripe down it's back)
The goats can't get enough of what
Mike is feeding them... :)
Apparently, the headmaster has told him that the goats are due to kid at the beginning of September, and that he always has a few for sale. So Mike and his dad, Wayne, are planning the shelter for their future goats :)
This is what childhood is all about. Not being entertained by movies, the latest must-have gadgets, and material things.
|Natasha, Wayne, Mike and their dogs on their|
way to visit us one evening - just a short stroll
along a dirt road, with some LED headlights to
light their way :).
I am so thrilled that they moved here - not only because they are just over the field and we can walk to them, or they to us, whenever we feel like it, but also because it is a less stressful lifestyle and such a perfect environment for everyone, especially for children.
