RES Market Days

On Friday the milkman and I went to support Ky's school at their market days. The event took place in the gym, each class from Preschool to 4th grade at the elementary school sold something to raise money for their classroom.   
Ky's class sold popcorn which was fun to eat as we walked around and looked at each booth.

Another class hatched baby chicks in their class room to sell. Ky begged and begged for one of these little babies. We didn't come home with any because we already have chickens at this time.



                       Ky has met and made some amazing friendships this year.




 It has been nice for her to see our niece Braelyn (on left in picture below) everyday at school. She loves her so much!

 It was a good time to spend some time with Ky and the kiddos and help out by picking up a few items. What a great job everyone and what a fun fundraiser!

Garden Talent

On Tuesday I rode with the milkman to the sale barn about 45 minutes away. My friend Rachel lives over in that neck of the woods and I have been seeing the amazing pictures of her garden and I just had to see it in person.





                Seriously, she has some mad gardening skills. So beautiful!

After our visit she sent me home with some tomato plants that she grew from seeds this winter.
It wasn't a long visit but it was so nice to hug her neck and see the talents God gave her at work. Thank you Rachel you always make me feel right at home I'm so grateful for your friendship! You can follow Rachel on her blog at www.littlehouseontheplains.wordpress.com

Stormy Weather

Yesterday was a VERY muggy day. The humidity was ridiculous. It would be one thing to have this much humidity by the ocean but it is another thing to have it in land locked Kansas. Ugh! We knew a storm was coming without even listening to any weather reports. Everyone around these parts was on high alert because of the history that Kansas has 25 years before with one of the deadliest tornados in its history. That tornado not only did damage to miles and miles of homes but took many people lives. All around the state things started shutting down early or cancelled all together. The kids had a high school track meet it was cancelled, Taryn had her clinical's for her med aid certificate, that was cancelled and people battened down the hatches to brace for the storm.    
 Then it hit and hit it did. God put on an amazing firework display with all of the lightening and the thunder was so loud. It rained and rained and rained.
 This morning this was what we woke up to. 2 1/2 inches of moisture.


 All the rain makes for a very muddy farm. But, we are SO thankful for 2 things. #1. That the storm wasn't damaging as what was predicted and #2. So grateful for the moisture, which is exactly what is needed for our crops. Time to get my mud boots on and get out to do a few things in the barn. :) Have a great day!

And let me just say some how we always manger to crack each other up so badly that it comes out as the funniest pictures. Thank you tribe for all the encouragement leading up to and on the day of the barn sale. Your prayers, cheers, phone calls and texts meant the world to get me through a crazy week.
