The kids have "fun" with Aunt Patty
It's always nice when all the family is here visiting over the holidays. Catching up on the news, sharing meals, and playing together is always great fun. My older sister, Patty, usually manages to motivate the kids into doing some kind of farmwork. Today it was cleaning calf pens with my son, Justin, and his cousin, Zach. Noah was laying low due to a bout with pneumonia, so the three amigos were operating one short today.
