I'm back from my farm vacation-- several beautiful day spent on a farm in western Pennsylvania. My (city) kids were excited to feed the sheep, collect eggs, water the goats, etc. Well, most of the time, anyway. You can see my son's reaction to visiting the dairy barn at the county fair. We've been reading "Last Child in the Woods: Saving Our Children from Nature-Deficit Disorder" and this vacation put us off the map, out of the path of stores and toys and television. For a while we got to live a sparse and simple life, and we loved it.
