Fixing Fence & Counting Trees

Elizabeth got her flu shot this morning. She cried a little because I was holding her arms and cried for a minute after the shot, but nothing horrible. She then took a nice long nap on our way to Danbury with Travis to check on the Chinese Tallow trees he's got planted for work.

It was nice to get out of the house today and Elizabeth was pretty good the whole trip. When we got there, there were 3 bulls inside the electric fence that surrounds the 7.5 acres of trees. So while Travis drove them out, Elizabeth & I put the insulators the bulls had knocked off of the rods back on and bent the rods back straight. While Travis walked the fence and put a gate in, Elizabeth played with the toys on her booster seat and I started counting trees for the plot map. After a few pictures for progress reports, we were back on our way home. It took us 2.5 hours to get there to do 2 hours of work, but hey, I get paid for it!! To get to spend the day out with Travis makes all of the driving worth it!

For some reason I think it's the funniest thing to see Elizabeth strapped in her chair in the middle of a field (but also very smart)! Of course, I'm also jealous that you got to go to work with your husband and your baby.

I hope your helper gets her first paycheck from A&M soon! I wonder what minimum wage is when you're 7 months old?

I guess minimum wage for her is a bottle and a biter biscut!
