    Update from 16/9-22
    If anyone is interested in oktober, we would be really happy :)
    I just broke my elbow and need help with the sheep now in oktober :)

    Hello :)
    We are a little family - me 35, and two children 12 and 10 years old and Sigmund who is 40 :)
    Me and the kids live in a small flat in the center of Tórshavn with our two cats and Sigmund lives in a small village and has 150 sheeps, a dog and several geese :)
    The kids go to school every day and most of our time is spent together as a family and with all the pets and animals :)
    We are a openminded family who loves to play games, work around the farm and watch tv :D
    Depending on what time of the year, we have different things going on around the farm.
    From february-may we feed the sheeps every morning and we have some sheeps inside that needs to be taking care of.
    In april-may all the lambs are born, so we go every day to feed them and check on them to see if they are okay and help them if needed.
    In may the sheeps go to the mountains and grow big and strong :)
    In july we take them home for a nice haircut and give them medicin :)
    While the sheeps are growing, we use the summer to make hay and other things that needs to be done around the farm.
    In october we take all the sheeps home and there we have alot to do for a week or two :)
    And the cycle continues :D

    Dont worry - the months that are not mentioned are full of fun too :)
