Branding 2014

How awesome is this?!!  What, you don't know?  This is the most awesome development - Mommy no longer has to get out of the car because Clyde can get the gate!  Well, the green gates at least.  It'll be another couple of years before he can get the wire gates.

And look at him here -helping Daddy wrestle those calves.  Wow!  What a difference a year makes.  It caught up to us today though when he wasn't scared by a crazy aggresive cow.  He did get out of the way before she charged, but she was so close!

I made 2 lunches this week, plus I did a lot of the actual branding.  It was amazing to not feel like I had to be watching the kids.  They are really getting independent.  I made calzones one day and enchiladas the next.

 Alice mostly hung out on the truck the first day but by the third day she was helping Daddy too.

We've got one more Idaho bunch and then it's off to Oregon.
