Riggs Chapel Road, Harriman
My husband grew up on a farm. I grew up around my grandparents who had been farmers. I spent countless hours with my mamaw canning everything from green beans to apples. We played outside all day every day, rain, shine, snow, whatever. Those are some of the best memories I have.
I want my kids to be raised the same way. I want them to appreciate the small things. Grow up slow. I want them to love being outdoors. I want them to know what hard work is. Know the value of hard work. I want them to appreciate the animals and where we get our food. I want them to love to pick their own vegetables and eat them right out of the garden, dirt and all. I want them to rather have a vegetable out of the garden than candy or sugar. I don’t want them to worry about going to the gym because they’re already so active. I want them to value relationships with people not just technology.
