Little Wife On the Prairie

When you are everything to everyone, well, you had better act like you have it all together.

One thing he has taught us...

Poor unsuspecting Daddy.


He surrenders!

Surrender is for the weak!  Asher flanks him.

It has been a successful mission.

 Thanks Daddy.  You taught us everything we need to know about formulating an attack.

We love you!  You are our heart and center of our family.  Thank you for leading us with prayer and for seeking the guidance of the Lord in all you do.  You are a precious example for each of us.  Thank you for being tender and loving but for being able to bring down the hammer when we need it.  We love you Daddy!

Update on the greens.

The garden is coming along.  Whoo hoo for rain.  And whoo hoo for a drip system
when the rain doesn't fall!!

Sad, sad little tomatoes.  I am afraid they are getting wind-whipped
I just side-dressed them with some excellent homemade compost.
Hoping that perks 'em up.  Along with God's blessing of water from the sky!

The dill seems to like it here!  Smells fabuloso!

Squash plants should not stand up like that.  It is my old friend
the wind that likes to mess with me.

Cukes chugging along.

This is borage.  Supposed to be great to plant with tomatoes, have yummy purple flowers
for the bees, and also be a great herb to have on hand.  We shall see.

Here is a pic of what it should look like eventually!

Fungus on the watermelon?  Nope, just my Moons and Stars variety.  The foliage is spotted too!

Got some pumpkins and winter squash going now.

Hey there little fellas.  I will do my best to keep you squash bug free!

Micah and her Daddy

I had to be somewhere last week so Matt was on kid duty.  Micah loves to be outside so he took her out onto the trampoline.  He decided to take the camera as well and I am so happy that he did!  Here are pics of Daddy and Micah's date.

These babies came from the bright blue eggs that I posted pics of a few weeks ago.
Levi was amazed!

As you can see I am using spaces in my sentences instead of periods.  Whoo hoo!  We were very blessed to be the recipients of some love from a good friend.  She used part of a blessing she had received to send us money to buy a new computer!
  I was very amazed and kind of shocked.  My first response was to say no!  I didn't want her spending her money on me.  But she was precious and stubborn and basically told me to shut up and enjoy being blessed.  :)
She did not want to be mentioned but you know who you are and I am so thankful!  Praying God sees the blessing and returns it to you multiplied!  Love to you!
