These pictures were a few days before Christmas but I thought they were too good not to post. A big part of farm life is hay.Because of the drought last summer and us not having the whole place fenced in yet we are using way more hay than we had planned on.The Boys went and got us some square bales, here they are unloading it.They used a cart behind the lawn mower to move it to the shed.
When we moved here 2 years ago, The Boy couldn't handle one of these bales by himself.Lots of good, muscle building farm work quickly changed that! Plus, he has grown about a foot! He has now just gotten a smidgen taller than me, I am 5'-5 1/2", he is only 12 ! Of course, I can lift these bales,I have farm girl muscle!
I love to see father and son working together! Hubby has taught The Boy a lot these last two years and The boy has a thirst for knowledge.Not just book knowledge,which he loves also,but he wants to learn how to do just about everything.He learned some basic welding last week!
Hubby is a good example,there is just about nothing he can't do.If he doesn't know how, he will study and research until he can do it.Brain surgery...maybe not.He could give you first aid and field dress your wound thought.He did this once for himself after he cut a chunk out of his leg with a chain saw but that is a story for another day!
The Boy is so over dramatic! He is faking exhaustion!
In just a short while they are done! Father and son teamwork!
Hopefully this will last a month or two!
