Tuesday

Hello,

Today it was really cold (more natural for Febuary). Dad had us keep on schedule for the morning and afternoon. For the home repair time of our schedule Andrew, David and I went to our bee boxes (with no bees in them) to put some straps of wood on the sides, but it was really cold to have our bare hands out in the wind for so long and we only got two of the four boxes done (with four slats on each stack of boxes one on each side). It is quite a ways walking to get to the bee boxes, at least through the deep snow (in the front of our house you couldn't feel the wind but when you get into the field you really get hit).

Later on in the day (about 4:00 p.m. the sun already starting to go down) we went to Paulette's to work on her van and we had brought more tools to get the spark plugs out, because the van wouldn't start. It was so cold that we had to go into the house to get warmed up, and then go out again. We didn't get very far and the socket got stuck in the spark plug hole and I'm not sure if Dad got it out. We will probably have to wait to work on her van until it warms up.

Samson is doing allot better with the "heel" command but we still have to hold his collar and when we walk him around.

Dad has a brochure for Paulette that I designed with her help being printed.
