There are piles of stuff waiting to find a "home" and I can't find my favorite clothes. BUT we took time yesterday to enjoy the ranch. Here are a few pictures Jeff took...
The Roo's pictures are up on the Extension wall.
Tomorrow will be (another) busy day. I am working on the garden this weekend. I decided to make an Indian Village garden. I will make teepees out of pvc pipe and have my viney plants grow up the teepees. Each teepee will have a little yard that will grow a specific plant. In the middle, I am going to make a firepit out of rocks and grow my hot peppers in there. To go with this theme, we will start reading the American Girl Kaya series (Kaya is an Indian). Mackenzie is excited. I need my brothers irrigation help to get everything watered. I have started a lot of the plants in the house. Hopefully the village will turn out good.
Have a great night!
The 4H county office is holding a photography contest for 4Hers. Mackenzie is too young to *compete* but she will get a participation ribbon and her photos will be on display.
There were different categories- we entered the people one (we submitted the one of her dad from a couple weeks ago) and the animal one.
Here is the one we entered-
Here are a few others that were under consideration-
btw, the chicken nuggets laid their first eggs. :) Have a great night- God Bless!
Aahhh... Summer :) This just might be the best summer of my life. Every night when the sun starts to go down and things start to cool off, we go outside. Even Cambrie gets excited and finds her shoes so she can get down outside. The girls play on the swing set, the dogs run around, and Jeff and I do chores. We stay outside til it is dark (after 9:00) then come in and get ready for bed. I love it out here!
Here are a few pictures from this evening-
(below) This is what we refer to as "the crinkle-nose smile". She does it when she is really happy.
Jeff went out in our little arena where the sunflowers have taken over. He got some great shots! Yes, I am a bit jealous of his photography skills.
I've got more of the dogs but I'll save em for another time. I am STILL working on the Branson slideshow. It actually overheated my pc last night. I've switched programs and am still having problems. Also, Granny don't let me forget about your picture.
HAPPY HAPPY BDAY Grandpa Daniels and Uncle Randy. Hope you both have a wonderful day.
