Life on the farm

Many people have asked how life on the ranch is going. I have one word: wonderful! I haven't posted much on Facebook lately because I've just been enjoying every minute of life here with my family.

Let me give you a tour of the ranch in Spurger, TX. Here is our current home for the next 6-7 months (have I told you we are close to buying land & will be having a house built soon?) 449 County Road 4555. It's so remote that fed ex can't even find us :-)

These are some of the residents that we share our 'yard' with.

I knew I would love living with my parents but I didn't know how Todd & Paisley would do living in the country.

Let me start with Todd. He too loves it. He is already getting to know people in the community. One prayer breakfast & he became fast friends with the old men at the Spurger Baptist church. Every time we go to church he says hello to someone and I'm like 'how do you know that person?". Todd even had a friend visit last weekend and they spent 2 hours on the porch talking about fishing. There has also been a few times when he's helped out with chores on the farm. I swear he was born for this!

He helped spread fertilizer yesterday. Look closely & you'll see Todd & Paisley in the cab.

And now Miss P. To say she loves the ranch is quite the understatement. I didn't realize how much she liked being outside. Nor did I realize how much she likes to ride things. If something turns on around here, then she wants to ride it. You already saw her on the John Deere but here are a few other things she likes to ride.

Loves the 4 wheeler & think she know show to drive it.

My mom had a party a few weeks ago & borrowed a train set from a neighbor. She loved riding around the yard on that thing. Gotta love Momma T & Pops for always making things fun.

Loves her swing on the back porch

She even does some chores. She saw Momma T water the plants once & now she waters the plants. (smart cookie!)

But the thing she loves the most: All the animals on the farm!

Loves the neighbor's dog

She loves my mom's cat. Mokey has been very good with her & even lets Paisley pull her tail every once in awhile. :-)

She gets real excited when she can help feed the cows in the morning. (Now that I see this picture it scares me a bit. That cow in the middle looks like it's ready to go for her. Oops)

She even rode the neighbor's horse last weekend!

We have found one thing that she doesn't like- bare feet on the grass. She can't stand it. Mom says thats because she's a city girl!

So as you can see, we are all doing good here in Spurger. I think poor Paisley will be in for a rude awakening when we finally do move into our new house & there won't be 4 adults entertaining her 24/7! Until then we'll just be enjoying life on the farm!
