Summer Fun

We have had some wonderful opportunities to spend some great family time. Here are a few.
This past weekend we went camping near Prescott, AZ. We got there Thursday and set up our tent in the rain. It rained and drizzled most of the time we were there, but we still had fun, especially the kids. They played at a lake.Then we played in the puddles.Climbed the trees.And had a good time with friends.We have a source for raw milk. My s enjoy helping make butter out of the cream.We went to a waterfall in Colorado and let the kids play in the water. They had a great time. Abby really loves to get wet.
Another weekend we went to the Bisti and helped Grandma round up cows and did some branding. Grandma gave us a two cows for helping. The kids watched the round up from a safe location.
The cows waiting their turn.
The kids loved climbing the fence.
All the kids love animals. Beth managed to catch this hen as it was wondering around the yard. The hens I have right now are very gentle and friendly. Some days are too much fun to wait for nap time.
Another hike we took in Colorado, just north of Dolores. It is very beautiful and green. I love all the green. Abby took our picture.
Robert keeps rocks with him to throw in the water any chance he gets.
Girls playing in a little stream.
Beth did some walking in between riding on our shoulders.
This summer we celebrated six years of marriage. We found out this past week that I am expecting again. I am tired a lot, and soon expect morning sickness to set in. We are excited and look forward to another home birth.

When I first started teaching, I taught at a church school in Florida. This past week one of those students from my very first class has moved out here. It has been over 11 years since I was in Florida. My former student, Delight, has moved here to teach in our church's school. I am enjoying having her here. I spent time with her family when I lived in Florida.
Today Delight helped visit bus route and soul win today. I had two saved. She wants to learn how I soul win because she doesn't like the "1, 2, 3 repeat after me" kind of soul winning. I am so happy to be able to help train someone, and to have a partner to go with other than my husband. I do love going with my husband, but I feel I should be training others as well. Not just going with my family.
That is all I have time to write for now. Just really excited and wanted to share it with everyone who will listen or read it! :-)
