This is the first week of summer!!! Since our older son begins combining full time next week, he is enjoying this week off building a tree fort with his little brother Garrett.
The boys asked us to bring them lunch. Since we wanted to see their fort, Victoria and I gladly brought some tea and a bite to eat.The goats say, "We want to come too!"
Our beef cows enjoying this day.
I brought Garrett some milk in a water bottle for his lunch. It looks like he's going to feed the goats, but no, they are too old for that. He named the goats "Purr" and "Stack."
Sorry this picture is a bit blurry. Here is the beginnings of a really cool tree fort.
Victoria is almost as sure footed as "Purr."
I love it when the kids go outside and find things to do rather than always on the computer. I do have to encourage this in them, especially since we do get lots of rain and cloudy days.
It's so worth it to keep encouraging children to play outside, even if they sometimes whine and want their computer/game-cube time. Our other daughter Jessica chose to stay inside and missed out. I did ask her to come out and pick peas and weed with Victoria and me and she did that. Mothers, don't fear your childrens' griping, whining and grumpy faces. They need to do work for you to help you, and it's good for them. They also need fresh air, sunshine and exercise. Ask the Lord to help you with this and to give you ideas, and then expect them to do as you ask. Have a wonderful week Dear Friends.
