Gayle and the boys have spent quite a few Saturdays and a holiday, now, cutting up trees that were pulled out from around this house before we moved in. They cut the tops and roots off, and then pulled the trees out of the paddock with the van. They only got stuck once! A neighbor came to the rescue with his tractor. These pictures are from the first day they worked on it—a beautiful, sunny day!
Little overseer. He hates getting muddy, and he is scared of the sheep, so he stayed up out of harm’s way!
It had been a very cold night—see that sheet of ice!
Esther was cleaning out a shed, in preparation for getting goats, which, after all, is not going to happen.
Opening up an old gate to pull the trees in close to the woolshed, where the wood was to be stacked.
And this is what happens when boys are trying to do a job too big for them! I superglued it together, and it has healed very nicely. To get it stitched, we would have had to drive an hour and a half, since it was a holiday, so I tried something I had heard of, figuring if it didn’t work, I could take him in to the local medical center the next day. Praise God, it healed without infection! I gave him massive doses of vitamin C for several days.
I took the picture because he wanted to know, while he was laying there, what it looked like!
