Good Day

We didn't make it to church this morning. The weekend and previous week caught up to us this morning. I had the alarm set for the latest possible time. And it did go off. But when it did, not a person in this house was stirring. So I turned it off and the kids didn't get up until 8:30 and us at 9. (We have to leave for church by 9) So, we took it easy this morning and had a late breakfast and headed to the farm.

Lance bought me 2 apples trees for Valentine's Day. I know, I know. It doesn't sound like a very romantic present. But when they are accompanied by a card talking about Joshua setting up the 12 stones as a marker to remember where the Israelites had come from and how God had provided for them. And how he wants these trees to be a marker in our family to remind us of these days in our lives, it's pretty darn romantic!

So we went to the farm to plant them. We spent about 4 hours there today and it was wonderful. The weather was beautiful. The kids played the entire time. We got the trees planted. We sat around a camp fire. And I got to drive a tractor! Ha! I have spring fever!!!!!!

Those round panels are around each of our trees. Can't WAIT for them to produce in a few years. :)

Luke building his fire

He made his father proud! He did a great job!

Sitting around the fire

The girls were looking for slugs

Hard at slug hunting!

Every day is good when you get to drive a tractor!
