Between spring time chores such as: plowing, planting oats, messing with meat chicks, growing vegetable starters, and cleaning up yards, we are also in the process of trying to clear out barns. There are massive amounts of old hay that need to be took out of one in particular...
And who better for the job than a pair of rowdy farm boys?
At least twice a day, they climb the haymow and kick down massive amounts of hay that I fork over to some ever hungry cattle. This farm job has given them a lot of pride in their work, a fun past-time, and a sense that "this is their farm too".
And what does Mommy do a lot of when she gets home? Oh, the springtime laundry! I totally forgot! It's worth it, it's worth it, it's worth it. There, do I believe it now?
