It’s summer time! Do you ever wonder what kids should be doing during the summer. Check out all the fun things my boys have found to do so far! I love my farmer boys!
Apparently the dog didn’t think it was as fun as they thought it was because it took two boys to keep the dog in the barrow!
We are building a new corral behind our house. (I’m not sure I’m too excited about yet another corral by my house. That means more manure, more flies and more garbage to look at. Oh well, too late now.) Anyway, my baby was “helping” us get ready to pour concrete which will become part of the manger. He felt the need to wear safety goggles. Branson and Payson sang songs to us the whole time we were working! No radio needed here!
Carson was helping pour concrete while grandpa supervised. I can’t wait for that scrap metal pile to be hauled away. I think we should take the money earned from the metal and take the boys to dinner! Good idea?
The other day Justin had an appointment in town. He left our house at 6:30 a.m. Apparently our employee who feeds baby calves had already asked for the day off. Somehow Justin forgot that minor detail. Guess who got to fill in? Yup, these cute boys!
These two signed up for baseball this year so they have been putting in some hours in the ‘ol backyard practicing. I caught them having a little break and decided to eaves drop on their conversation. Branson was teaching Payson all of the rules of baseball. I heard Branson tell Payson that he would have to pass a quiz on the rules later in the afternoon! He must have passed because made it to the “Pee Wee” team!
Can you see why I love summer? It’s the best. Our T.V. hasn’t been turned on in several weeks. We don’t have to do homework. And we have time for important things like baseball talk, giving dogs rides in the wheel barrow and lots of working. Hey, I say, “a busy boy is a good boy!” My boys know this is my theory too cuz they keep themselves pretty occupied so they won’t get a job! In my opinion, this is exactly how summer should be. I wish every kid could be farmer boys or girls. It doesn’t get any better than this!
