Fun in Paradise

We're spending the weekend with our friends, in the middle of nowhere. It's wonderful. Friday was a pretty nice day. Saturday and Sunday, not so much! The kids and I went exploring Friday afternoon.

 Checking out the cows. They eventually got used to the kids coming over and wouldn't run off every time.

 Off we go to explore along the creek.

 Found out the next day that this hole is where they bury their dead cattle! Hahaha! The kids thought it was a lot of fun to climb up and down the big hole.

 They didn't want to sit and take pictures....they wanted to explore!!

 Anna wanted to know if someone crashed and died in that car. Haha!

 King of the hill!

 Anna sat out there and told the cows stories for quite a while. I remember doing that more than once when I was a girl!

 The most exciting thing for the kids was getting to bottle feed a calf! Isaac thought he was pretty hot stuff.

 But then the calf finished and wanted more...thought maybe Isaac was hiding some so he started after Isaac....much to Isaac's dismay! He chased him around the gator. It was pretty funny!

We always have fun visiting Nate & Joy and appreciate their hospitality. It's so very peaceful up here.

Fun with the Big Kids

We have new foster kids from the college now that all the Swiharts have moved on! :) This is our second year for these kids and they have taken to our little kids so quickly. It's always fun when they come over and we have the perfect room for playing soccer!

 I think this time they were playing keep away. Donnie is a baseball player from California. He has a little sister about Jacob's age, so he's really great with the kids. They love him! :)

 Amanda is a volleyball player from California, as well. Her and Donnie usual come over together because neither of them had a car the first 1.5 years they were here. Come to find out, Anna and Jacob thought they were married! Simply because they always came over together! So funny.

 And here's our co-op group doing art!

Via Skype with Binga! The kids love it.
