On a more cheerful note, I had Levi out riding Smoke today. He's getting better at handling her but there's is still alot he needs to learn. Teaching is not my thing! I know what I do, how I do it, and why but I have a hard time putting it into words and getting him to understand. I was so cold by the time he finished I didn't ride Bannie. We'll be at the auction hall all week so he'll get to be lazy!
Yesterday afternoon Dad took us sledding in the fields. We tied four sleds together and then tied them to the tractor hitch. It's lots of fun! Sometimes we go without him and then the boys and I take turns driving the gator. The boys can never get me off my sled...so Dad tried to get me off. We were done sledding and heading up to the house when Seth reached behind him and pulled the strings that attached my sled to his. I had let go of my handles because we were riding nice and easy up to the house.....when he pulled, I slid of the back of the sled and got dragged between the sled behind me, that Levi was on, and my sled until I could roll over the string! Needless to say, Dad was the victor!
While we were still back in the field, Lydia's hands had gotton cold so she climbed on the tractor with dad. Next thing we know, the back end of the tractor was in the air, Dad was flung into the steering wheel, Lydia went flying off the side of the tractor and we were headed for the back blade. The three of us rolled off the sleds and I went to help Lydia up. Something, I'm not sure what, hit her in the stomach, but after a few minutes she seemed okay. I turned around to look at the tractor...the forks were stabbed completely into the ground! Apparently, as she was standing beside Dad, she bumped the lever and sent the forks down! Thankfully no one was hurt. She and Dad were a little sore that night!
Well, that's what's been going on here....just the usual unusual happenings on the farm!!
