The spring is an exciting time at the Florida House. Of course in Florida, we get a head start on spring! While the rest of the world is dreaming about warm days, we are well into the tasks of spring time on the homestead.
Our granddaughter, Addison, spent some time helping me with chores. It brings we such joy to introduce my little helper to the wonders of the homestead.
Addison helped me plant corn behind the greenhouse. See how we built the greenhouse here.
As a wonderful little helper, she helped clean Auntie Faith’s baby ducks. She really wanted to pet them too. We did make one sit with her for a second, whether he liked it or not.
She wasn’t quite sure about the Royal Palm turkey. He was a complete gentleman while she helped take care of him.
Of course, we made sure to make time for some fun as well and a chance to get dirty.
I loved being a mom, and still believe it’s the most important job, but to be a GiGi… it’s the best job! I grew up around animals too but my own kids missed out on this, I love sharing this with her.
