I’m told children benefit from routine in their lives. A farm provides that in spades. Patterns of each day and each season repeat with a regular rhythm.
Manu is such a keen helper he does not bother getting dressed before morning chores. He is the official taster for the chook food.
He also enjoys tasting hammers.
But seriously, he loves helping in anyway possible, even if it is just carrying something.
Or feeding the dog…apple slices. (Dog not enthused.)
Children learn through play, and Manu treats work on the farm as play. For example, hanging a gate is just a different way of saying, “Let’s climb!”
If he only had more horsepower in that thing we could get some serious work done.
