Hello everyone!  I hope you are all having a good week so far.  Last week was pretty busy for us.  Seems like VBS is always a busy time.  Our theme this year was “Hip Hopping for Jesus”.  The kids all seemed to have a great time.

Julie dressed for the part.  All the workers dressed in 50’s style.  I somehow didn’t get a picture of Grace.

We enjoyed our moon last week and finally (after years of trying) managed to get a good moon picture.  Our place was so bright at night, we had a cat bird that sang all night. I guess he didn’t know if it was night or day.

We have also been enjoying some of our fresh produce from the garden.  So far we have had salad greens, green onions, beets, radishes, carrots, yellow squash and a few cucumbers.  We love it!!

I hope you all have a good evening and God bless.

Hello everyone!  I hope you are all doing great today.  We are kinda warm here in Floyd-86 degrees but we do have a very pleasant wind so it doesn’t seem so bad.  At least, not if you are in the shade!

We worked in the garden this morning.  We started early but it still got pretty hot before we were done.  This is a picture of the first raised bed.  We have been enjoying the salad greens and green onions for a while now.

We had a great visit yesterday with my Uncle John and Aunt Elaine.  They live in Mighigan and had never been to the farm before.  Jess and her kids came up.  Everyone went  for a ride in the bumpy truck.  It was so good to get to see them.

Our grapevine seems to be doing okay now.  I was a little worried about it as it got frostbite by the last frost we had.  We won’t have as many grapes as last year but it looks like there will be a few.

The roses are blooming and look very beautiful in the tree.  We spent most of the evening sitting here yesterday enjoying the view and time spent with family.  I wanted to tell you all about something beautiful I saw last night.  I almost ALWAYS have to get up during the night to go to the bathroom.  Well, last night when I got up I looked out our bedroom window and the sight I saw was totally amazing.  The stars were shining so bright in the sky and underneath them the lightning bugs were everywhere!  So many it looked like blinking Christmas lights.  I stood there watching it all thinking how good our God is to allow me to see something like that!

I hope you all have a great evening and God bless.
