Here Piggy, Piggy, Piggy

The very fact that I am blogging this is making me giggle just a little. We have two new friends at our house...Porkchop and Wilbur. They are the little man's 4-H project. I have always heard how your kids will change you and cause you to grow. Well, it's happening to me. I will have these two lovely little critters living at my house until August at which point they will be taken to the fair and sold. The little man is very excited at the prospect of making some cash from his project. You wouldn't think that it would be that big a deal but he has the potential to make $300-$500. Yeah, there is a little money in livestock. I am not sure what will happen to the rest of us when the sale occurs. I am sure there will be some tears. Gigi named Wilbur and says that is her pig. She can't do livestock until she is 8. I think that I might have to change her name to Fern. She pets him, feeds him out of her hand, and brushes him. I am trying not to get attached but they are really cute and they act like puppies. They come up to you when you go to their pen. They want you to scratch their ears. It is really funny. So for now lifeinkerbyville is very interesting. I am learning what it takes to be a farm girl!
