Dot Dot and So So stayed with us all winter, but in the early spring they moved on to a new farm, in Northern Maine with more geese and less people.
Bennett and Sam both thoroughly enjoyed the high water levels of spring, putting their boat into Alewife Brook.
The kids enjoy early spring Smore's and Bennett welcomes his new flock of chicks including two goslings, names Dot Dot and So So!
Bennett continued to enjoy the use of Sam's tractor. Strawberry Fest was a blast. Sam once again caught a giant lobster on the boat with his dad.
Bennett and Jodie work all day long together, Sam and Emery plant potatoes, Bennett working in the barn and greenhouse, and deciding all the time he needs lobster for lunch! Bennett goes for his first boat ride, and Sam and Bennett "work" on their tractor to "fix it".
Perhaps the hardest worker on the farm, Sam does it all, puts the flag out, works in the tunnel, plants and washes the veggies. Bennett is right behind him every step of the way.
Sam caught a giant lobster, while on the boat with his dad.
Sam and Bennett every year, this was the best year for them.
