Farm Randomness....

Don't you know waffles taste better with a DO RAG, flame swim trunks and a Helmet on?Our wheat looks phenomenal this year! It is done heading out and is now in the flowering stage.

As I gaze at this wheat in my hand-I am amazed at God's goodness & intricate design of all living things.A view from the field to our house-nothing like WHEAT in your backyard!The Captain got himself a new farm vehicle. This will come in handy for spraying chemicals and getting back and forth from the field to home.
He can drive/fly ANYTHING! The Captain & Wy Wy getting ready to race. Anything for another good reason to HOLD ON TIGHT to The Captain.SUMMER (black) and RAINBOW (white) our chickens have been relocated outside to the kids play house! Not NEARLY as cute as when they were chicks huh?
They should be producing eggs in 2-3 months THAT IS IF the dogs don't figure out how to break in to their new house & do away with them before then. I can tell they are already formulating a plan.
We placed flowers on the graves of The Captains uncles and grandparents yesterday. Bean is touched that his birthday is the same as The Cap's uncle Clif-the uncle who lived here on the farm before us. God knew what he was doing-Clif would have loved all the kids & been amazed at the addition of his house. The cemetery is in a beautiful location. Surrounded by fields full of crops, a gravel road in the middle of the country. The place where The Captain and I's earthly bodies will also be laid to rest one day.
The Captain LOVES the name "OTTO." His grandfather's name..Aw-Bell-our sweet animal lover! Karmy-our Saint Bernard is WONDERFUL with the 6 littles.Mr. Pitto our first cat on the farm 7 years ago-9 lives and then some. He LOVES the new table by the front door. He is the ONLY cat our dogs allow to run freely on the farm-they terrorize the rest. Mr. Pitto-terrorizes them.
Guess whats on his mind?
"Those chickens are MINE!!"

Your family is so pretty!

And I admire you. I could NEVER be a farm girl. Eeek! Seriously.

Have I told you before that you're a cool chick? Because you are.

I have to laugh at that first photo because there have been MANY of those moments with my 4-year-old. He has worn a plastic shopping bag as a parachute, he has worn a big sparkly pink ring to preschool because he wanted to wear it while he sang a special song to his class, and he has plenty of other getups as well. Spiderman regularly visits our table.

Too cute.

Can't remember if I've left a comment before, but I love reading your blog so I can live your wonderful farm life vicariously!

There is definitely lots of FUN going on at your farm!

I love the shot looking back at your house. It is just as beautiful from the outside as it is from the inside!

Have fun 4wheelin'! Hold on tight!

Love and blessings,

Wow, Jen, you live on such a gorgeous farm. So absolutely stunning--not quite as stunning as your precious brood though :)

Thank you for sharing your life in pictures, it was such a treat to look through them all. I is so nice to have a visual picture of where you live.

Love and hugs.

As always, the pictures are amazing. I especially enjoyed the waffle attire. I may have to see if the wearing of a helmet increasing my enjoyment of waffles (which I love alot already!)
