Delivering The Goods ...

After many hours in the hay field, the boys were excited to finally be delivering their last load of small square hay bales!  Despite being only 8 and 9 years of age ... this is their baby ... their deal!  For the 2nd year in a row, they've made and delivered hay to the Calgary Stampede Ranch!  In a world full of "entitlement," I guess you could call us "old school" parents that are trying to teach our kids that you have to "earn" things in life and that usually comes with some hard work, respect and gratitude for what you have!  The boys worked very hard and in the end, they are getting a pay check from the Calgary Stampede Ranch with the understanding that they have to pay for rent for the use of the haying equipment and fuel! (I think their Dad will be fair on the rates!)

After helping 5 cowboys, along with their Mom and Dad unload the hay bales ... they were quite happy when Tyler told them that he would see them again next year ... that this would be a yearly thing!  

Good job boys!  We are so very proud of you!!!  


  1. Great story....you should indeed be very proud!

    1. They worked so hard Sally. It was so wonderful to see them so proud of themselves and satisfied with the end result! They both had the biggest grins!
