Country View: Country Kids

Our readers have some adorable country kids!
  • Glorious Mud

    I don't know a country kid who doesn't love to play in the mud! Our mud hole is the setting for end-of-school celebrations and thank-God-it-rained parties.<P>

  • Tub of Fun

    Our grandson, Alan Wade, 1, can quack like a duck and gobble like a turkey. On this day, he enjoyed a new sandbox followed by a tin-tub bath.<P>

  • Quite a Catch

    Last fall my husband and I bought our first house on 4 acres. We put in a garden and bought chickens. Our girls love fishing with Daddy. This is Stella, 6, with her big catch. <P>

  • Trip to the Coop

    My husband and I introduced my twin nieces, 6, to country life. They fed the chickens and ducks, raked leaves, and had a hayride behind the ATV. They had such fun. <P>

  • Creating a Buzz

    My son, Gus, 12, took a 4-H course on beekeeping and received a blue ribbon at the Indiana State Fair last year for his poster on how to check a beehive. He is a brave boy.<P>

  • Growing Up

    Country kids pick wildflowers for the kitchen table. They make mud pies and tree-limb forts. Alas, mine are growing up. They have been a big help on our family farm.<p>

  • Buy Our Eggs!

    My husband and I have four children under the age of 6. We wanted to teach them hard work and the value of a dollar. They go out twice daily to feed the hens and to gather the eggs. Then they sort them, wash them, and put them in egg cartons to sell. Cars can't help but stop to see these cute kids.<P>

  • Hug a Goat

    My three boys went to visit their cousins on a ranch in Nebraska and had a great time riding horseback, having cap-gun fights, milking cows and goats, chasing chickens and turkeys, roping, and even helping brand calves. This is Ezekiel, 4. <P>
