Josh is a friend of my youngest brother Micah. I have seriously known him since the day he was born. Now he is all grown-up and works as a paramedic and is part of the flight crew for Tulsa Life Flight. He told us that we should come by and visit on our way home from the promise land and he would show us around.We were all fascinated by everything. It was so amazing to learn that everything that they have in an ER room is all packed into the helicopter and that they have to be trained basically just like a doctor. It was so awesome!

At the beginning of last week the girls and I ran down to the promise land (Oklahoma). My youngest brother Micah, his wife Megan and their 3 kiddos were in from Ohio. They had twin girls in January whom we had never met so of course we had to go!When some or all of us are together there is ALOT of us to say the very least!

The other Sunday we were invited over to my brother and sister-in-law's farm for supper. It was a beautiful evening! After supper our nephew Corey, who has been buying and restoring old tractors, pulled some of them out of his machine shed to drive around.

If you are new to the blog or don't know much about us we are 3rd generation dairy farmers. As with anything, as time goes by it is important to update and make improvements to the farm. This summer the milkman wanted to knock out the old stalls for the cows and make them bigger to add more comfort and shade for our "ladies". For about 2 weeks the guys welded up i-beams lots and lots of i-beams.
Then the milkman gathered up some help to pour all of the concrete columns. Kenton did most of the skid steer work drilling the hole and jack knifing the old concrete.
This is what it looks like now that the concrete tubes are poured. This is just phase 1 of the project. There will be another post to show you more progress so stay tuned! I'm so thankful for all of the amazing help we have. God has blessed us with guys and girls who work so hard to accomplish our goals. Thank you! We are SO grateful!
