Dave came home Monday with a list of chores for the kids to do. He walked them through everything and then we started. One of them was fencing. First some old pictures. Blake helping to dig the trench for the electrical line.
Septic going in. Yay!
There was lots on the list. Mowing around the barn and houses, picking up old shingles, and fencing. We had to go down to the sand and get tons of post. Then we drilled holes in them.
Cora and I have moved these poles five times now.
Blake loved drilling. You give this kids power tools and he will do anything. Dave came home the other day and announced he had got 30 more for Blake to do. He was so excited it was crazy.
We then hauled them to the sand, strung wire, and set up the fence.
We drilled the insulators and attached them to the pole then stuck the wire in.
Leah loves the drill. That is how we get her to work. She loved drilling the floor boards in the house, drilling the insulators on. She was at a friend's house the first day, but enjoyed coming out with us the second day.
This is a very embarrassing picture of myself, but this is how we rode out to the field. We couldn't take the truck out in this field so Jared was kind enough to lend us his four wheeler. Dave was driving, I held the girls on, and out we went. Pretty fun.
We got one fence completed and next week the kids will do a couple more. This is such beautiful country we live in. I love working with my kids. We are so blessed. They have worked through the list already and Dave is going to come up with another one again. As we finished last night this was our view.
