A Treasure for Our Knight

So here is our "knight" with his treasure. He is always the first one done with school and outside to discover bugs and hopefully something really "cool". Well today was the day that he found a real treasure...this blue tailed lizard! That bright blue was striking - the pictures do not do it justice!
Our Creator is so full of imagination and awe - how can we not acknowledge Him in all we see and experience...

A Few Firsts

A few of our spring firsts!

Here are the farm boys getting the tractor and harrower ready to plant our first planting of grass/oat hay. I even heard that our "knight" was able to drive the tractor while my husband stood on the harrower to help move the seed along...not too safe and I was glad I didn't see that stunt!

A first horse ride for our oldest young man. He is riding Hondo....a huge horse of almost 17 hands...massive but gentle guy!

First time for mom to adorn the "extra-large" bee suit and help with the bees. Here we are looking for eggs so we can force a split and gain a few more hives.
We did loose two hives over the winter but our other two hives are 50,000 strong. They were really buzzing around...amazing enough we didn't get stung.
Aren't chickens funny...they were so curious if we had "snacks" for them.

Sping is Here...Maybe

We woke up to this "spring" morning to snow falling...Happy Spring! It snowed most of the morning and then the sun melted it all away.
Love the fashion? Our maiden has been saving her money that she gets every week for helping milk the cows...she wrote a list of her needs and wants and this pink cowgirl hat was the first on the list! She was so happy to find that the store that had it was having....A SALE! She wears this with everything!
Next on her list is pink cowgirl boots then the horse of course!

Bubbles - I love bubbles....there is something nostalgic about them.

Look at this lovely house...wish it were mine! It reminds us of a huge doll house. I want to say that this house is well over 100 years old. I love driving by this place and thinking of what life must have been like in this house...wouldn't it be fun to restore....maybe the Lord has it in His plans for us...just maybe...or maybe we could build one just like it! Places like this fascinate me.

Thank you for stopping by...Happy Spring ya all!
