We have had a fantastic, albeit a little wild and crazy busy summer so far and it seems to only be getting better!
Here are some of our highlights from the past month...
Isn't she gorgeous?! Her dad and I are more than a little worried about the future with this cutie...
Doesn't he look soo old here!? I can't believe that I am about to be a mom to an EIGHT year old!!
Ok, so then he goes and does something like this and I remember that he is just a little boy, no matter how big his britches get!
I know this kid of mine will break hearts someday!
I love that he was so into me taking his photos!
My boys, they look so much like brothers!
I did try and get a good shot of all three in the corn field...didn't quite work out the way that I planned!
And yes, thats my son playing in the corn field with his skid steer...can't tell what he wants to be when he grow up can you?!
And my awesome hubby (who is the best dad on the planet!) is building this kick a@* swing set for the kids...
This is how we roll down here on the farm, calves hang out in our sandbox!
hahah, ok, well only if you are a future fair calf and are being tortured, ahem, taught how to be led around by our young kids!
Meet our fourth child, Gordon.
He is the only kitty to have survived our family from last summer's batch (we actually don't know what happened to a couple of the others).
He is so humanized that he climbed up the ladder to join us on the deck of the new swing set instead of climbing the post like a 'normal' cat would!
We all LOVE him...
I have no reason what so ever to do any kind of landscaping in our front yard, umm, dirt pile in the next few years. Not with this little guy around!
He's 3, need I say more?!
He goes from crabby and mad to happy and silly in exactly 2.5 seconds!
I have been spending many hours finishing our porch, painting, painting, and you guessed it, more painting!
But it will all be worth it in the end when I get to hang this up...and live by these 'rules'
Have I mentioned that we have been raising caterpillars?
Well, they hatched today and the kids were uber excited!
There is still a lot of work to do on the swingset, errr, country kid paradise...but they LOVE it so far!
I finished painting the rails (at least with coat numero uno...which is all the they will see this summer, I am SICK of the tedious job!) now onto the floor!
Lovin' her cats...and me, lovin' the porch I always imagined!
Happy summer 2012 ya'll!
