Uncle Ben went shopping, result is BB guns for Beth and Bo!

Ben is teaching Beth how to grade the road.  This is how Dad taught Ben, by sitting on the front of the tractor.

Kittens eyes are open! 

One of the twins from Friday.

Jamaica only has one good side, so we have a bottle baby!  Beth is pretty happy about that!

This mornings surprise!  Cute little ewe lamb.

As I was looking out the window this morning waiting for muffins to be done, Jamaica was starting to go into labor.  The girls have been wanting to see a lamb born, so this was perfect!  Muffins were done and we went out to check.  Lucky for us Jamaica has a pretty laid back nature so she didn't get upset with the kids out by her. Shortly after we had 2 more lambs!

Sunrise this morning

It's very hard to take a picture of a pig when she wants to smell what is in my hand!

Out getting some firewood.  Kids thought it was the best obstacle course!

Today we got to put up a green house!  Mom and Alvin went to town the other day to look at a few things, and this is the result.  The kids were awesome help as usual!

   The girls each wanted to pound a stake into the ground.

                                    Playing on the swings.

                        Showing us how good of shot they are.

When we first got the sheep, they were not friendly at all.  If they seen you they would go into the farthest corner to get away.  It took all summer, but with patience and mainly grain they all settled down.  The one I'm petting is Freckles.  She LOVES attention, if she don't get it, she will nibble on your coat or gloves until she gets her ears scratched.

All settled in for the night.

Still waiting for more lambs...

Our livestock guardians, Max and Roxie, thinking they need another treat.
