Here are three pretty smart (and pretty sneaky) kids.
For a whole week these guys would get dressed and disappear for hours...presumably playing in the snow and sledding.
They would come inside red faced and cold wanting hot chocolate.
Of course, I would oblige and make some for them. Then they would get dressed again and go back out to play.
What I didn't know until much later was that they were NOT playing outside for three or four hours at a time. They were playing outside for an hour...going to Clay's house for a snack....playing outside for an hour....going to Grant's house for a snack....repeat...repeat...repeat....
I talked to Clay's mom after they had been doing this for a few days. We compared stories and realized things didn't add up.
All walls are finished. The only thing left outside is to put doors on the second lean-to. That is going to be storage for now. Probably keep cattle trailer and hay wagon or horse trailer in there.
The side with the end closed will be used to put the cattle working equipment. It is done.
