Some of you know that my mom recently started a part-time nanny job with the Lineberger Boys. She goes out to their house in the afternoons right before they get home from school and stays with them till their dad gets home from work. For those of you who don't know this wonderful family, they have 5 boys ages 16, and the other 4 are 13. Their sweet mother passed away this past Nov. I wrote a post about it here. My mom is loving her new job and can't wait to get out there each day to help the boys with whatever they need. They pretty much live on a huge farm :-) Well...it could be, but they only have a few chickens and pigs. A couple rows of veggies growing and of course a LONG dirt road! But oh my goodness, did my kids have a blast the other day when we went out to visit!! They have been there before (this is where we have our 'Trunk-or-Treat) but it is always dark and I don't think they realized it was the same place :-)
First they got to see the barn kitty! She was so sweet and friendly and then totally surprised the kids by climbing the trees!! They had never gotten to see that before. All the other cats they've seen have been indoor cats :-)
Then it was off to see the farm animals!
At the hen house...
Hailey sat their and talked to them for such a long time! They were so attentive to her...I'm sure they thought she'd brought them something to eat! I didn't realize chickens ate EVERYTHING! They eat as much leftovers as pigs do!
Then we walked over to see the pigs!! Boy are these guys loud! And they defiantly were hoping that we had bought them something to eat. Next time we will be a little more prepared with snacks! There were 6 pigs (2 to a pin) The boys train them to compete in the local fair with the school.
Speaking of the bottle rockets.... I'll let you see how the Lineberger boys do them!! This is Hunter giving the example. He is also one of the 4 'little boys' That's what we call the quads (they were actually born all boy quint's but Zachary was stillborn.)
