No School Means More Hands to Build Fences

Today our kids didn’t have school. They were looking forward to a four day school week and so was their dad! The kids were excited about less school work and homework but Kevin was excited because he would have two extra sets of hands to help build and repair fences around the farm.

Kevin had their day all planned out for them and then the weather changed and it got a lot colder over night. I think he will have mercy on them and wait to see if it warms up after dinner to start. (His hands get just as cold as theirs do, funny how that works!)

The kids love helping Kevin on the farm, they don’t care what the weather is like. Conner’s motto is, “a bad day on the farm is still better than any day at school.” I love his spirit, I hope he always lets it shine because he and his sister both give Kevin and I renewed energy and they remind us why we work the hours we do! We want to make sure they have a farm to pass onto their kids.
