Also, LP has started getting in some tractor rides. He spent a few days out in the fields this week. The pictures are of him showing me and My Farmer that he is ready to be the 5th generation farmer in the family. I just had to take these photos while we were taking a break.
Having LP out in the field this week participating and enjoying being a part of the family's farm operation made me so happy and proud that the Department of Labor announced yesterday that they are withdrawing the proposed child labor rules for kids working in agriculture. They said that the decision was made in response to the "thousands of comments expressing concerns about the effect of the proposed rules on small family-owned farms." I'm happy to say I was apart of those thousands of comments, not once, but twice!
