Around these parts

We believe in child labor around these parts.
It's legal in Tennessee, right?

Yes, that is my 7 yr old mowing the lawn 
the one who is lacking in the posterior region.
Gotta remember to get that kid a belt.

But have you seen our yard around these parts? 
The front yard ain't much smaller 
And in case you were curious about the side view
Or why I find it necessary to complain about bellowing at 7am.
It's them there cows out my bedroom window.
We even put the little one to work.
Shirts are optional around these parts.

Playing outside was about all there was to do around these parts.

Until the Internet anyway. Now you'll probably never see this one out there.

Not sure if they were all exploring around these parts, or the big one went after the little ones.

Of course snatching up my camera to capture a rare sibling moment makes for bad pics. 


School started a few weeks ago around these parts. Not having your camera ready means you might miss that getting off the bus on their first day shot, as evidenced by the hair flying out of the frame. This was at the end of our road (lane?), which is exactly a half mile to our house. Thanks to a change in the route, they are now the last stop, so the bus driver drives all the way back the lane, turns around in the driveway and drops the kids off at the house. Which probably saved the little minions from heat stroke as the lane is an up and down and up and down half mile and they aren't quite used to being country kids yet.

I live in Calif. as a Bus Driver and our Regulations are so strict. It's weird seeing the kids crossing the street in front of the bus without the Bus Driver not out of the bus crossing them. We would get fired for not protecting them. You must live in another state.
