work boots

I never thought seeing my kids in work boots would melt my heart like it does, but guess what, serious meltage.  Now if I could just acquire an affection for the smell of manure left on those workboots, then the circle of life would be complete.  Addy and Landon religiously feed their steers at 6:30am and 6:30pm... give or take a few minutes:)  I'm so impressed by their work ethic and care for these tender animals.  Without reminder, Landon replaces the steers muddy mucky water with fresh clear water even in the pitch dark, and Addy always takes time to scratch their dirty heads to gain their trust and let them know she's a friend.  Since they started taking care of them a few months earlier than last year, I'm afraid it's going to be twice as hard once auction time comes to part ways.  But how grateful I am for all the lessons they're learning, and it makes living in these long, cold, annoying winters worthwhile... almost.
