Escaping the hustle of the city…

6 Comments

On Saturday Kobus treated some goat, sheep and cattle.  While we were on the plot just outside of the hustle of the city, Logan and I spotted 3 goslings behind the mommy.  With the help of one of the guys on the plot I was given a gosling to hold.  The idea of course was for Logan to hold the gosling, but after a proper display of hissing by the parents, I think any kid would have been petrified. 

Yesterday we traded the hustle of the city yet again,  this time  for the stillness of the fishing waters.  For some reason we didn’t have any luck with the fish, except for “stick-fish” Logan managed to catch.  Here is Kobus and Lu, behind the fishing rod:

If anyone had told me this would be my life a year ago, I would not have believed them.  Cap on my head and trainers on my feet I sat next to the dam.  I may still complain about being woken up at 5AM and the smell of the fish, but I am so grateful that I get to experience the outdoors.  I am so grateful that family outings are filled with adventure.  I am so grateful that my boy is learning things first hand what it means to be a boy!

    My family also love fishing. I don’t, I only like the calm of the fishing waters. To sit and enjoy the stillness of it.
