The mission butchered hogs a few weeks ago. The church people are allowed to help in exchange for getting the meat at a reduced price. Isn’t that cool? I got a few packs of sausage and some pork fat from which I made a jar of beautiful lard. (Getting all house-wifey again!)

My baby has lots of doting “relatives” here.

This lady is the brains behind who ordered what cut of meat etc.—she keeps it all straight.

Sausage…mmm. (What’s a working day without tea?)

Even the babies had fun.

Gabriel took a dissection kit along and sawed open a hog’s head to see what he could see.

His anatomy lesson attracted quite a crowd!
