What we did: We fished in the frog pond. We milked a cow, and I learned that milking isn’t that hard to do. We also made ice cream in an ice cream machine. With an ice cream machine, you just have to stir the custard. We found a lot of eggs—about 15—in the chicken house.
What we learned: Here a few minor things I learned: Small mouth bass really have big mouths. Homemade ice cream is usually a bit runny. Some chickens sit on their eggs until there are twelve eggs there. Egg shells can be very bendable.
What I liked most: I liked fishing a lot. There were small-mouthed bass, sunnies, and bluebells. There were a few other unidentified fish and some tadpoles swimming around, too.
I caught three fish. I had to wait to get my second fish unhooked. I couldn’t unhook it, and the only people who could were busy. Daisy the dog liked to eat fish, and she was snapping at my second fish. The only dog-free place to put the fish was in the water. The fish I had caught was very strong. It squirmed about and finally the rod string snapped. The fish swam away with the bait, hook, and string.
While waiting for my rod to be re-stringed, my friends and I tried to catch tadpoles. It was impossible, but it was still fun.
What I liked least: I didn’t like feeding the pigs. It rained last night so everything was muddy. The pigs were making a lot of noise. They sprayed food everywhere. They can be annoyingly sloppy, even if they can’t help it.
