The Ties That Bind

In our family, there are a lot of ties that bind. Like mud squishing around in the mud...
...large machinery, especially tractors...
...farm chores (even better if there's a ride in a wheelbarrow involved)...
...making meals...
...patting the horses on the nose...
...climbing hay bales...
...talking to grandma...
...drawing and quartering daddy...
...or dogpiling on him.
Power tools...
...and ridiculous cat jokes.
Collecting the maple sap...
...and dragging it to the house to boil.
Sorting clothes for a new little sister...
...and doing art projects together.
Playing with the cats...
...and being whooped while playing games.
I think Henry's wondering if he knocked the tree down with his brute strength.
Clearing out fallen trees...
...and improving the home.
I love that there are so many things that link us together.
