12/27/2012 Kids think work is… Final Farm post

It is never too early to develop the love of the land.  Kids think “work” is fun when they are this age.  Emily loved helping in her GrandDad’s cabbage patch. Now that she’s a big girl… I pray everyday that she will keep her feet on the ground, her hands close to the soil and her heart on GOD!   Only 4 post to go!

12/18/2012 God had arranged the last.

Woke up this morning in Sasebo, Japan thinking about home a little… thinking about the family from church and missing Kenai, our black lab.  I was still looking for a picture for today’s post and decided on this one taken a few days before we left .. .I thanked my friends for letting me take their photos with the family and their dogs and arranging such a sunset.  Andrew  said that he was only responsible for the  first two… God had arranged the last.  Thank you GOD!

12/14/2012 “Who invited you?”

“Who invited you?”   “Sourdough” the  donkey seems to be saying to Kenai. The feeder is on his side of the fence.  Now this was the meanest donkey ever…. he bit the calves, chased Kenai and created havoc in the pasture.  “Sourdough” no longer lives on SunnySide Farm.Kenai & Donkey

12/13/2012 Every family has a story.

Every family has a story.  Do you know yours?  Take a few moments and ask the where and who and why…. the more we know about our history just might give us a better view of our future.  I have said it before and I’ll say it again.  “Come see us… I’ll take your picture.”

Friends!

12/9/2012 Today’s post has two pictures.

Today’s post had to have two pictures.  This is early December in North Central Florida.  We have it pretty good here considering the winters that so many parts of the country have.  No we are not “dashing through the snow on a one horse open sleigh” … BUT we can hop on the tractor and cut us some hay.  SONY DSCSONY DSC

12/7/2012 He does this all the time!

He does this all the time!  If it’s warm and he sits for more than a few minutes….ZZZZZZZZ.  His mother was exactly the same way.  That’s okay I loved her and I love him.  When a man works hard… a sweet nap on the porch with your dog is a good  reward.Nap time

11/28/2012 …back in the day.

Just the other morning Jack and I were discussing the changes that we have seen in our lives.  Many things that were “necessities” are now “collectibles”.  I remember … I would place the empty milk bottles at the front door and the milkman would deliver fresh milk every other day and that was only 40 years ago.  I bet these milk bottles would sell for a whole lot more than the price of milk back in the day.

10/21/2012 This is the best I could do!

We have friends that have been on the search for the best Fall color… we have relatives that have invited us to come see the Fall color show… we have a son who takes great pictures of Fall leaves.  Well… this is the best I can do for now.  Florida Fall color is a little hard to come by.

 

10/20/2012 Friends & Family

I had a wonderful day…. friends came out and I took family pictures.  I have a bit more work to do before I share the pictures with them…  BUT I could not resist posting Miss Gracie’s picture.  It is such a joy to be part of a large extended family from our church.  Friends & Family are truly a blessing.
