Well thought I would write a little update since I have a little time. Things are starting to get busy here. I had a craft slash garage sale I set up at yesterday. It was a good day. The kids weighed in their beef steers next on the list is weighing in their dairy starter calves. So now comes the time to start working with the fair cattle always the highlight of my year. We are pretty filled up on cattle right now. The hubby bought 8 more little ones a couple weeks ago luckily we can feed them all in a trough. Other wise I would have 14 on buckets and that would be too much. I'm milking three cows and seven goats now. So between milking, feeding calves and washing milking equiptment it takes me 1 1/2 hours to get done. I'm way working on cutting this time before farmers market starts. Before long it will be time to start attending the markets which I look so foward to. We will be contributing to 5 markets this year. The other day our seed for spring planting was deliverd so the time is coming close. Seems like once it gets warm the time just flies by. It will be cows calving, farmers market five days a week, plowing, planting, spraying, baling hay amd more hay, combining wheat, baling straw, taking a week to be at fair with the kids, more planting, spraying, cutting silage and bagging it, harvesting then the summer is gone. Wow I'm worn out just thinking about all of it. This is the life of a farm wife and I love every minute of it. Would not have anything different about my life I'm so very blessed. From our farm to you Rebekah
