This is the month of getting things done. And by done I mean FINALLY getting the trees under control from the storm. It only took 4 months to find a tree guy that we felt gave us a fair price for the large amount of work we needed to get done. Not sure if you remember the tree climbing kit that came in the mail for one particular person (I won’t name names) to try his hand at taking down some serious limbs and dead trees. Well, that Mr. No Name got smart and let these trees guys DO EVERYTHING. Including the big cedar tree in the front yard. GONE. Not even a stump left!
Not going to say I didn’t have a weird feeling in my stomach all day hearing those huge limbs hit the ground. It took me right back to the night of the storm and wondering what was happening all around us! And to watch their machines today haul everything away IN ONE DAY left me remembering how much work it took to clear our own property after the storm. Don’t get any ideas Rad that we need a front loader…although this one today would be awesome to own. I could think of a few projects that would be checked off the list quicker if we had one.
I love that my boys love to work. Gress was right in there helping the guys pick up branches and offering them drinks. He has a great heart for people. And often when Mcree gets tired of working he always makes himself useful with animal wrangling. And speaking of animals, we were having a joy ride on the mule the other night and Gress yelled, ” STOP, PIGS!!” We really thought he had lost his mind. But sure enough there were three little piglets foraging in the field. Only one let us pet her and then they heard their dinner bell and ran off. OH SO CUTE!
Side note, if you take your boys to a restaurant dressed like this you better expect some comments about being farmers. OH that made us smile!
