flies and helpers

Ali and Ava were allowed to help us paint a little bit the other day.  Here they are with their brushes and showing off their hard work.  They did great and had a blast!  
BELOW:  These are the latest thing for feed lot houses... fly tape.  Lots and lots of it:)  we are using it to decorate every room.  It I was a cow I would want someone to wrap me in this.
I will post pictures of our stinky friends later on.
A few funnies:  1) Ali calls the trucks that they haul 'fertlilizer' in the "poop trucks".  They run in and out of the feed lot all throughout the day.  "Cows poop too much."  - Ali Mae

2) Ali walked into this little house and said, "What a nice house!"  Paint peeling off the walls and dead flies everywhere - my girl put it into perspective for me!  It is a great house and we are truly thankful.  I can't wait to move in.

This is a great adventure for our family and I am sure that we will learn a lot!  We will post pics as we make progress!

love to all!
