We clean and rake and burn and mow and weed and clean some more, and it doesn't seem to make a dent when you've got 10 acres to maintain! Today it was beautiful outside, and I spent all afternoon shoveling debris into the wheelbarrow and taking it back to the burn pile. These two kiddos just didn't think it was right that the wheelbarrow was being left empty on the way back and decided I needed a little more exercise. After several rides I finally had to beg them to go and hunt for treasures in the barn and give my back a break.
