For the time being

we are suspending the blog. Unfortunately we have been in California every month but one this year mostly due to my grandfather dying. While we are thankful that we were able to be with him at the end and with our wonderful extended family, this hasn't left much time for the blog. The farm requires so much work in the spring and we are behind this year due to so much traveling! Hopefully at some point we will be able to continue this blog but for now the link will be taken off of the front page.

Blessings, Sara

Visiting with family friends

Today we had family friends from California over for dinner. We had quite a lovely time. I think they enjoyed holding the baby chicks and feeding the sheep. We heard how Peggy had first met my grandmother. Apparently they lived somewhat parallel lives, both having gone to the same girl scout camp and they both lived in the same areas of England and Belgium. Her daughter Lisa and three grandaughters also came over. Their ancestors originally came over to Oregon to be a part of the Aurora colony nearby so they were taking spring break to show the girls part of their past. 

The sad news is that we just recieved word that Mom's dad is not doing so well. He's in the hospital and they're not sure when he is coming out.  

Going to go take a night time stroll with Scott (and anyone else who wants too). Hopefully there's stars!

Taking a pause from blogging...Most of our family was in California for the past two weeks, and now I will be gone off and on for the next 3 weeks. Hopefully, it will resume then, if life doesn't get too much in the way, as it has a tendancy to do...

Getting the mail

Setting out on the great adventure

The neighbor's horses watch in amusement as we wander by

Daniel and Jacob running off all of their extra energy

Panther watches on with great amusement as the younger boys race for the mailbox

"See I got the mail out without a key, cause I
could stick my hand through the slot and grab it"

Panther faithfully follows Daniel walking back down to the mailbox to see if he missed any mail.

Tyler exploring whether Daniel really could stick his hand in all the way.

Tyler: "Hey, Sara, we got a hand in the mail!"

Sara obviously not paying much attention takes

pictures of a fuzzy Panther

"Do I look like I care?"

Linking his chops, Panther wonders if the mail is edible.

Still burning off more of that extra energy.

Let's go home and make ourselves a nice cup of tea, shall we?
