Tree Loggers





I'm posting a few snapshots taken tonight while getting the kids involved with tree cutting. They did a lot of things to keep themselves entertained, making light sabers out of branches and pretending to be Karate Kid, balancing on tree stumps. We managed to eat some brats roasted over a fire and lucky for me, I still have my eyeballs, Romay is a bull in a China shop around trees, then again, also when not in trees. It started to sprinkle, eventually progressing into a light rain, and we all agreed that we're fair weather wood cutters. Our chain saw made it through it's first cycle of gas, working beautifully, although we still feel a little guilty for getting things done so fast now, as compared to the good 'ol bow saw days, a couple weeks ago. We all love the space we're blessed with, the kids can run around and be themselves without having to consider the noise around neighbors, Jay and I can frolick, sing, and play with new toys...

Seeing those pics made me thinkg of the scene in 13th Warrior when the men are making a fence from trees. Your lot looks good!

I have a blog now, Pixel.Lust

Real buff kids you have! Way to go Ethan and Romay!

Now that would be a sight to see...you two frolicking. Is that what you two were doing when you running around circles that time.

Berry would love all the space to run.
