Prayers for Jace

Jace (zippy) is having surgery today...Please pray for him and his family.  LC is at home with Aunt Whitney.  Pray that all is well for her and that LC leaves her tubes alone!  Justin and Courtney we are praying for your strength and wisdom to make difficult decisions and for the doctors to have stable hands and God's healing touch for Jace.  I know they would LOVE your prayers too!

All good

So far so good at our house today...O seems to be the only one so far to get this yucky stuff.  And he was better by 2pm yesterday afternoon and has been going strong (trust me) since then.  Woke up at 6:30 ready to  move his cows to the pasture!  Maddison is supposed to cheer tonight at the halftime of girls bb game.  Hoping to have some pics and maybe a few video clips too!

Take a guess!

Guess what hit my home this morning?

I truly thought it would skip my home.  So far O is the only one.  I PRAY HE IS THE ONLY ONE.  He has been such a trooper.  He's sleeping right now, hope he wakes up w/it gone!

Tree Hunting

Today we had out annual church meeting.  We had a yummy lunch and then a LONG meeting.  The kids were pretty good, but bored and we sat a long time.  After we got home we needed some exercise and fresh air.  We bundled up and headed out to the pasture to hunt these
little cedar trees.  Cedars are a lot easier to handle and take care of if you catch them when they're little.  Brent had an attachment he made that goes on the weed eater.  It has a blade and you can just cut these little trees right off.  We cut 97 trees this afternoon. 
Garrett "looking" I think he was doing a little more wandering and daydreaming.  But it was still fun to do something all together.
I pulled Owen in our wagon.  It worked great.  I thought it might be a little tough, but it wasn't.  We moved right along.  Although my arms did get a workout. And I GUARANTEE you they will be sore tomorrow!

Kansas Day

The 29th was Kansas Day and Garretts school does a lot of different things for this day.  Owen and I decided to head up to the school and check it out.  We made it just in time to hear all about cattle drives.  It was interesting and I actually learned something about horseshoes.  The man talking had a saddle w/a rope and spurs, chaps, boots.  Really about everything but the horse. Owen was pretty good while they talked and then got the chance to sit on the saddle.  Would have been a real great picture had I remembered that I actually HAD my camera.  BUT I did remember I had it when Garrett got to talk about sod houses on the local  radio station.  He was nervous but did a good job.  I was very proud of him.

This was Owen messing around in the hallway of the school.  It was shortly after this shot, that we left.  Apparently listening about cow patties being used as meds and how to make your own butter just wasn't fascinating enough.  But running up and down the hall was!
