Fencing


All 4 of us have spent the last few days working on fences. We have had some arguments, some mishaps, some blonde moments (mostly Courtney and me), Courtney threw the hammer a few times (yes, she has a temper..wonder where she gets that from), a few...ahem...choice words escaped from my mouth (and Chad's too), Jeremy hit his thumb several times, everyone except me got at least one shock......but most importantly, we had many good laughs and some fun along with the work. We actually had LOTS of fun the last few days. It is so nice to be able to spend time with each other out in the fresh air without distractions (ok, the kids did do some texting so we weren't totally without distractions but they put the phones away when we asked them to). Ahhhh...spending time with my family...having some fun...while getting the work done....PRICELESS!

Blonde moments! Love it!
Can you imagine what our grandfathers (mine were both farmers) would think if they could see us texting??

The family that fences together stays together. HA
I enjoyed your story. I never had to do fencing. Hubby used to do it before he started driving semi.
