Love you so much little girl!

Shepherding…

We still have about 17 ewes to lamb, give or take a few depending on how many of the yearling ewes caught last fall.  This lambing season has just zoomed on by and we’re about done!

Bike Riding…

After several months of sitting in the garage, the kids were able to pull their bikes out and give them a spin the other day.  The ice has for the most part all melted and the road is fairly firm so they have spent quite a bit of time and energy peddling all around.

We have been enjoying this spring weather so much.  Just in time too, I think we were all getting a bit of cabin fever.  And with 4 little boys in the house, it’s nice to send them out to get rid of that excess energy on bike riding instead of each other!
