#Farmlife Friday

To many folks surprise farm life doesn't just include what's happening on the farm.
In our farm family farm life is our life...so it includes everything that is going on...
from new calves being born,
teeth being cut,
to starting new journeys... all of it is part of life on the farm.

Last weekend the boys and I had to work on fence.
Some of the beef cows kept visiting the neighbors who apparently didn't want house guest :) 


The cows always seem to inspect my work when fixing fence.


The boys enjoyed splashing around in the creek and playing in the sandy bottoms.


Wyatt's hens have started laying eggs consistently.  We have 16 chickens now as one of our hens have wandered off.  Of the 16, four of them are old enough to lay.  We are getting on average 3 eggs a day.  Our other 12 should start laying around the 1st of October.  Not really sure what we are going to do with 16 eggs a day!!


School started this week and the farm baby has been having a blast riding in the silage truck...
well that is until he gets covered from head to toe in silage and then he pitches a fit.  I think he's loving his only child time.  Those sweet curls you see above are no more :( The baby got his first haircut Wednesday.  



I am always amazed at how much a hair cut can change a person.  It is official we now longer have a baby.  He is quickly growing into "Big Boy" status.


Speaking of big boys...the farm boy started 1st grade on Wednesday.  (Side note: Wednesday was a very emotional day for this momma).  He was excited to know many of the others in his class but nervous about a new teacher and new expectations.  


The Farm Boy was getting settled in at his table on the 1st day. 


It floors me how much he has grown up in the last year.  I can't wait to see how he flourishes in 1st grade!

Needless to say this week has been busy and full of re-establishing routines.  
The Farmboy wasn't very happy about "having to quit work" to return to school but all good things must come to an end.  So as we say goodbye to summer we pray that all of you will have a blessed school year! 

Until we meet again,
