You’ll poke your eye out…

What happens when your sister chases you with a fiberglass bike flagpole?  Ask Garrett!

Ouch!

Big scratch on the eye, ouch!

 

Doesn't he look about pathetic?

The eye doctor said his eye was going to be just fine and that it would just look bad for a couple of weeks.  And it hasn’t slowed him down any!  ;0)  Garrett seems to be  our most accident prone boy and kid in general.  He did this earlier this year and had to have stitches twice last year, has broken his arm and the list goes on!  Do you have an accident prone child?

Goings on…

We have been having problems with a couple of sheep being renegades and crawling through the portable fence.  So this week Sawyer and I brought back all the sheep and sorted out all the trouble makers.  They then ended up staying in the main pasture for a couple of days due to being busy haying and then yesterday the kids and Iwere able to get them pushed back over to the portable fencing where there is more grass.  So last night Mark went over to check the voltage on the wires and to check on what it would take to put a perment fence in over there.  There is already a fence in place that looks pretty good, with the exception of the east side that is almost completly down but still has all the posts and most of the wire.  For the rest of the pasture it looks like we’ll just need to put in a couple of new post, insulators and one more round of wire to keep them in.  We then could do some rotational grazing, and then if someone popped through the temporary  fence we wouldn’t have to worry so much about them getting into the neighbors yards as all of them seem to respect the main fence (with 7000+ volts) running through it.  Mark also GPS’ed the garden and found out it was 4/10ths of an acre.

So last night I was able to ride the property lines with Mark as he checked on the fencing situation and GPS’ed the whole thing.  When we got back to the house the littlest boys where wanting a ride so off they went with Mark.  Zayne was too cute, his little eyes would get real big and he would smile and then wave.  When it was all done he got so mad to have to get off.  I’m not sure if that’s a good thing! (Him being so little and already thinking the 4-wheeler is so fun!)
