News from the Butcher Block
I have been doing a lot of butchering this week, a lot of butchering, folks. We have done 9 pigs since the beginning of December and I did 6 chickens just this morning. I am so thankful to Dad for teaching me how to do this, because I am beginning realize the importance of it. Mom and I have also been doing a lot of canning. Ms. Irby, Mr. Woods, and Mr. Brailey have been helping with it as well, as some of the pork was theirs. This month has been educational for a lot of people (including me!) thus far.
I am planning on writing a bit about my experience during the December Project around the first of the month. I mean, I will try, but we all know how that can go. I will basically be posting about what I learned and how it was for me. If you have absolutely no idea what the December Project is, you should go read this post on Dad's blog.

Speaking of Sustaires, there's a new one on the way! Mrs. Sustaire will be delivering, Lord Willing, sometime in January. This will be Ella Sustaire's new baby sister or brother! My profile pic is of me holding Ella. ( which I do a lot )
Well I better get going and ... can ... or ... butcher ... or something like that.
