But...nothing could be farther from the truth. Truth is I grew up in what could probably be considered suburbia. And while Nick grew up in a small town and did things like bale hay in high school, he doesn't know much more than I do.
Thank goodness for Ag Days! An event that our county's 4-H Organization puts on, it has a cute little hunt where you learn how to harvest foods, then you put a sample of them in your basket as you go along. At the end if you have everything they treat you to milk and cookies. I mean seriously, how cute is that?
This year Daddy had to work while we went but we still had so much fun.
The kids learned how to milk a cow.
And their treat of milk and cookies at the end. It was such a nice event. Afterwards it was about lunch time and they had homemade chicken and noodles for $2 a bowl! So we bought a couple of bowls and it was so, so yummy! And we had so much leftover we had a huge heaping bowl amount that we took home for Nick to enjoy. I'd consider lunch for 4 for $4.00 a pretty good deal, wouldn't you?
Not to mention that the entire activity was free. It was a lot of fun and very educational. It was a lot of information all together that saved me the hassle of having to wrangle (ha!) together. Plus what could be better than hands on learning?
