we have been lucky with our wwooers this year. we've had three sets so far and 1 more to go and they have been a great help, unlike the ones we had last year. (we had 1 girl who stayed three months, invited her boyfriend out w/o consulting us first and then sponged off us the rest of her stay).
the current couple biked here from new jersey via michigan. they dove right in from the moment they arrived (at 9pm) to learn how to milk the goats. the guy has set posts to help build our pasture and she does the dishes constantly, even when it's the kids' responsibility. it's nice to relax and not worry about things getting done. this summer has been a summer of knowing it is being taken care of even if i don't have the time to do it myself.
all have been great with the kids too. which is wonderful because my kids are enamored by everyone that shows up.
we have 1 more girl to show up next week. she and the current couple will be here until mid-september.
