I've been rather quiet because we've been busy. On Saturday, 2 sheep were slaughtered, skinned, gutted, and hung. Yes, most of the kids helped with it. They seem to like that sort of thing. Even Ellie seems ok with it given her constant banter later that night regarding the dead sheep and how it no longer had a head and we would be eating it.
On Sunday, said sheep were butchered. One is now in our freezer and the second one was picked up by a friend on Monday.
Several kids are now/still sick so I'm hoping we can just enjoy a couple of quiet days at home now and let everyone rest up.
