If you think she's capable, go for it!
My 4 year old isn't ready yet, but I do give him little jobs while I'm prepping. My 6 year old is working in the direction of taking care of her own food prep, but she prefers me to do it.

Looking forward to the cool November weather. I'd say...

We just moved from Minneapolis to Austin and I'm very happy. Our quality of life has increased by a landslide. Granted (as PP have mentioned), it is about having the mindset that things will be different and using the new opportunity to create a better life.
Some of it (like lower cost of living, better weather and friendlier people) was already in place and made the move that much nicer.
Maybe this will be helpful to someone.
I went to the store and bought Blue Buffalo Wilderness Chicken (they have Salmon and Duck as well that can be freely switched to). It's "cold processed" which I think is a fancy way to say "freeze dried"
It contains no grains. It has meat as #1 ingredient and also contains some veggies and fruits and herbs. It's more expensive, but also not full of fillers, so I need to feed her less. Once she is used to it, I will introduce...
She's a 4 month old lab mix. Very sweet and smart.
I bought "Dog Training for Dummies" and the authors talk a bit about raw feeding. It makes the most sense to me. I always assumed I'd feed a dog raw since I first read about it years ago.

DS turned 4 in February and had no interest in potty learning.
2 weeks ago, I asked if he wanted to try again and he kept having accidents UNTIL he stopped wearing underwear (at his request). I just put shorts on him and that's it. No pee accidents at all. He's not pooping in the toilet, but he will when he's ready.
