January in Michigan

We had a logger come in and take some of the largest trees on our 60 acres and there were some amazing trees. It was sad to see them cut down but it is making room for the smaller trees to grow and mature. We also had many ash trees taken out because the emerald ash borer is just starting to ruin trees in this area.
Tom is examining the work of the loggers. We were happy with the way they were careful not to damage our fields or the trees that were left standing.

It was amazing to see the trucks of trees leaving and yet our woods still appear full without bare spots.

Tom and I had planned to head to Florida for the month of January this year but it didn't work out for us. So we are spending our January here in Alto. We are hoping to leave for Florida on February 26 and stay there until the end of March.
We have had an easy winter so far. I haven't had any snow days at school not even a 2 hour delay yet this year. It hasn't been the case for Jennifer in North Carolina. …
