My dad has a pretty unique trade--He's a sheep shearer. He also buys the wool for a company from the customers he shears for. Tuesday was the day for the big semi truck to come and load up the many, heavy, bags of wool. (all 16,000 pounds of it). Mark always tries to go out and help, so we (the rest of the fam.), get the interesting job of watching the action.
We could not get out to my parents house until about an hour after the truck arrived. My mom had helped them load until we got there. I wish so bad that I had some pictures to document that memorable moment, but once we got there she let Mark take over. :-)
Taking a little break before starting the hard job.
Kaden relaxin' on some of the many sacks of wool.
The sacks are put on the elevator and then ride up and fall in the truck. The driver of the semi stands in the truck and organizes the bags.
What Khara, Kelsey, and Kaden did to keep themselves entertained. They were so excited to be able to play on the dirt pile. Aren't you glad kids wash???
