Checking in

Hello! How are you? What have YOU been up to? I have been ...tending to a three-legged calf... wrangling a ginormous cow who got stuck in the mud... wrangling thousands (really, just 2?) of small boys with ginormous ideas... doing laundry... planting seeds... doing laundry... you know, the usual.

We had a great Easter with my family, and the weekend before Easter I had a great birthday celebration with my sister (who drove out here two, count'em two, weeks in a row) and friends, and the weekend before that, just kidding.

It's late, I don't really know where I'm going with this... I just wanted to get back here to this little space on the interweb where I never have to say things like "Don't poop on the deck" and "It is not okay to take someone's shovel and then knock them down with it."

Oh! And we have chicks! And ducklings! In the basement!

Good night, all.

Now I Lay Me...

A couple recent prayers from our house:

Evan: Kanks, God, for Dad.
Kanks, God, for Mom.
Kanks, God, for Evan!
Kanks, God, for.... Ethan.

Ethan: Thank you God for keeping us safe from bears.
