Here is the bigger success of the day - the boys holding their graduation certificates. In just a few weeks, they will be going on their first ever deer hunt. (I am working hard to get past my personal anti-hunting feelings...) They are going to hunt on other land and I'm not going to see the deer until it's wrapped in white paper.
While we were busy this weekend, the lumber guys started clearing our land. We are clearing about 20 acres. While I know the terrain is going to be a bit ugly for a while; when it makes it to rolling pasture with animals, I will love it.
The equipment they have it phenomenal - they cleared about two tractor trailer trucks today. The pine and oak tops are going to pulp while the big trunks are being turned into boards.
The first clearing is about half way down our drive-way; we are leaving a pretty good buffer between the first clearing and the road. We like our privacy so we can do our morning animal chores in our pajamas!
