Building a Shooting Range

My brother, son and 2 nephews started building a shooting range this morning. It's a project that we have wanted to do for awhile now but just was not sure how to go about it. My brother Larry has been planning a design for awhile and put the plan into action. I can't wait until it's finished so they can enjoy some fun, safe target practice. I'll post more pictures when it's through.
Please keep my brother Jerry in prayer. He will be flying home over this weekend from Iraq. He has been working there for the last year. He will only be home a month and is suppose to return unless he lands a great job here while he's home.

Playing in the Dirt

Scott and one of our neighbors has been plowing for several weeks trying to get the ground right for planting. They starting planting watermelon seeds yesterday. The planter was not working properly so they decided to get Hunter involved and started planting by hand. I really think they just like playing in the dirt. At the end of the day everyone needs a long shower including the dogs. I think Pepper and Daisy has had a bath 3 nights in a row now. They love it on the farm. Daisy was brought to the farm to be a watch dog but instead she is a big chicken. Every little noise she hears she runs and hides behind one of us. She's a sweet heart though and very much a part of our family. I'll keep pictures posted as the watermelons and other crops they plant start popping up.
Have a Blessed day.

Back in the Saddle

I love spring. It seems a time of new beginnings to me. I am trying to turn over some old leaves and start some new beginnings. Dieting is at the top of my list. Exercise is at the bottom. I'm thinking about it so that's a beginning for me. Keeping up my blog will be another I really want to focus on again. Speaking of blogging. A lot has happened since my last blog. Christmas came and went as well as the new year and Valentines Day. All of the holidays were nice and busy for me and my family. Hunter is playing soccer for his middle school team and waiting for the first big game. You know me-I'll be there to cheer him on win or lose. What ever he's playing is my favorite sport. Scott is driving me crazy starting one new project after another. I wish I had his drive and energy. He works, is trying to start a entertainment business on our farm featuring a petting zoo, bounce house and hayride. He also is in the process with a friend to start a huge garden of watermelons, cow corn, and lots of other veggies. It's really neat to watch the process of undertaking such a large project. His friend tried to get me to learn how to drive the tractor today. Can you believe that. I told him not today I'll stick to driving my dogs around on the golf cart.

Farm Pictures

Scott loves for me to display pictures of the farm on my blog.
Here is a few new ones we took. We have seen a large number of turkeys lately in the field.
I took a picture of one of our bulls this afternoon. He is one of our largest calves. I think he was born in January. We have had about 6 or so calves born since him. They are growing fast.
We are very thankful for the rain that has made us have nice grass for them to graze on.
Check out Hunter and Scott with the watermelons that were grown in our field this summer at bottom of page.
Have a blessed day.

Go Away Fay

Just thought I would share a few pictures of our farm flooded by Fay. SOOOO ready for Fay to go away and stay. At least we can get in and out of our home and road. We need to remember to pray for those whose homes were destroyed by Fay. Scott said he has seen lots of fallen trees, power lines and flooded homes on his beat.

Summer's Here

Hello to all my long lost blogging buddies,
I know it's been a few months but I'm gonna try to post at least once a month this summer if not more.
We are just finishing Vacation Bible School up and had a nice turn out. We have some super teachers this year and one of our youngest teachers has done an amazing job with her class this year. The kids love and respect her and she has led 5 children to the Lord this week. Can I get a Amen. That's what it's all about right there. It seems to be a lot of work but oh sooooooooooo worth every minutes of time and effort that goes into it.
I'm looking forward to a vacation coming up soon with my parents and son.
Hope everyone has a safe, fun and cool summer.
Because He Lives

Spring Break Fun

I know it's been awhile but hopefully I am back blogging again. Guess I have just been lazy.
Hunter was on Spring Break from school last week and we really stayed on the go. His friend was in a cheer leading competition in Jacksonville so we went to see her and stayed with my parents and visited friends for a few days. He was thrilled to hang out with his buddy Jared some. Back to Palatka to meet his friend at the Clay County fair Tuesday. Wednesday we took my parents to a museum and out to dinner. Thursday back to Jax for Hunter and Scott to go deep sea fishing and Scott's Mom and I spent the day shopping. On Friday we went to Wild Adventures in Valdosta, GA and met his friend, one of her friends and her Mom . We were so tired by the end of the day but we braved it again on Saturday for about 1/2 a day before the rain started. I was ready to head home but stopped too shop a bit at some outlet stores. Sunday after church we had a VBS meeting to get things rolling. Looks like it's gonna be a fun VBS this year. We will take an imaginary trip to Hawaii. I'm excited since I haven't made it there in person YET. If you have never helped with VBS you should at least once in your life. It is lots of fun and what a blessing to see little one's come to know Jesus.
Until next time.
Because He Lives
