|A kiss for luck before the work begins...|
|Mark's Boots Are Made for Workin'|
|The dust mask was Scott's best friend as he swept the loft.|
|"What else ya got? Sweeping is child's play."|
Mark and Scott decided that one Chinese elm tree had to go. It was growing too close to the barn and too close to another Chinese elm.
|The arrow points to the doomed tree.|
|Notching the trunk.|
|Mark was in charge of the ropes.|
|Got it down without crushing LuAnn and Kristin and/or the Barn.|
|The mighty hunters with their prey.|
|LuAnn discusses the craft ideas inspired by the trunk's extracted wedge. All she needs is a little paint and a "watermelon slice" will be born! Too bad her boys have outgrown 4-H.|
|I even got off my butt and did some work! I climbed up and swept a few years worth of leaves and muck off the roof.|
|Mark and LuAnn relaxed with a walk to check out the Longhorns next door.|
|The perfect end to a wonderful day at noTTafarm!|
We are so lucky to have such a great family!A Great Big THANK YOU to Mark and LuAnn for spending the day with us and working so hard!!
