Work Resumes

The sun was shining but it didn't warm the earth much around our neck of the woods. After breakfast Mark got Ash to help hook up the log splitter to the tractor and the men all went out to help split logs.
Rhoda pulled out Paris for the grand children. Paris is so good with the kids. Below they are riding around the big tree in the yard. 
 As they go under the branches they reach for the 'sticks' as Jack would say.
Taegan wanted to ride too.
 Jack decided it was too crowded up there so he wanted to lead Paris.
 Braelyn thought leading looked like fun and wanted to do Jack's job. Poor Jack, it just seems what ever he has or is doing Braelyn wants to have it or do it too. Rhoda offered to take Jack to Mark's tractor while Sarah helped Braelyn lead Taegan and Addyson around.

 Jack was all happy until the others arrived.
It was too cold to stay out long, their little noses were all turning red by the time they were brought back in. Rhoda needed to leave for work and Sarah headed over to Sauders to work on the house Rachel is teaching the kids to build. The pictures below were taken by Rachel and are of the progress made today.

This is a great learning project for the many nieces and nephews. Rachel is teaching them to work together and all of them are learning real life skills that will help in the future. After all, who knows what the future will hold for this generation. 
Mark kept the log splitter going most of the day. By the time Emily arrived we were just about ready to quit for the day but as long as she was willing we worked until the sun started to set. Before it turned dark we were able to move a round bale in the short shelter and moved Eliza and Paris into that. It's only a little after 8:00 pm but after stacking pile after pile of wood into the lean to we are more than ready to hit the sack.
