Today, Ashton and Will went to the farm with Jeremy. He had to turn some bulls into steers... if you know what I mean. The boys had seen this before, but they had never watched a "teen-age" bull get de-horned and it was a little traumatic for them. At one point Will said despairingly, "Daddy is that a nice bull." Jer said, "Yes!" and he said, "Then, why are you cutting off his horns?" When it was all said and down Ashton told Jeremy very seriously, "I hope that I forget the bloodshed!"
Later, they were cleaning junk (equipment parts, scrap metal, wood, etc.) out of an old shed to haul it away. Ashton said to Jeremy, "What you call garbage, I call building supplies." Ha ha! He is such an engineer... junk really is the best toy for him. :)
