Over the weekend I had all the kids help me outside with "Operation clean this pit up." All the toys outside, the clothes we found (seriously?), grabbing all the rest of the veggies from the garden, and cleaning out the dreaded chicken coop.
I must have been half crazy when I agreed to take them all to Applebee's by myself. They were all good for me though.
The farmer combined around our property last week and finished it up yesterday. They told us to feel free to look through the fields for leftover corn. The kids heard that and took off. We now have a 5 gallon bucket of corn to feed the animals and play with too.
