I remember the hugs and kisses, the ones i try to make sure garrett and mahlia get. I remember her laughter and how she would gleek and make us laugh harder. I remember the wonderfull way she smelled. And how she loved to read the paper in her pajamas and watch her special shows.
I miss her so much and think of her everyday. I see her when i look in the mirror and i hear her when i say something to the kids. i feel her around me.
One day we will be together again and i will give her the biggest hug, to make up for our time apart. But until then i will remember.
I Love You and Miss You!

So here is the bucket of tools we use to put up the fence. The posthole driver that goes on the front of the skid steer, that makes life so easy. The ground was so dry one day that Mark had to cut the end of the corner posts to get them started in the ground. And then we have the boss at work. I am being shook to death in the skid steer. That is my job. FUN! I will be so glad when we are done.

Anyway she came outside when i was getting ready to go in and she just had to show some love to Diesel. The girl has the biggest heart. She reminds me of my mom, always hugging and kissing. Even the animals!
It's fourth of July weekend. Where has the past 5 months went. I was doing the calendar that I keep on the fridge the other day and in 3 weeks i will be registering the kids for school.
I'm ready for State Fair. I love the sounds, smells and i love to watch the people. I hope that everyone has a good holiday. I cant wait to sit back and just relax with our friends and family and EAT!

So, the fair is over and all the pictures are edited and sent to the Extension office and the newspaper. I love donating my time and taking pictures for these kids. They work so hard and deserver to have a momento to have to show their families when they get older.
The handsome man in the center is our nephew Tyler. He won Senior Showman and then went out and won Master Showman. Thats what showing cattle is all about. If you cant show them then you are wasting everyones time. He has become quite the cattleman. And we are proud of him. Way to go Tyler!

So i'm starting to worry. Hank actually yelped in pain when he got up yesterday. So i called and talked to my friend denise who works as a vet assistant at a vet clinic. we have an appointment on friday to see what steps need to be taken now. we have him on a low dose pain medication, but im afraid its not doing the trick. I am so worried about how he will do this winter. so i have my fingers crossed.

Sometimes, the best things come in small packages. This little heifer came out of Mark and I's first Red Angus calf. We have had her for 9 years and this is the prettiest calf shes ever given us. Mark thinks this will be her last year with us, so he doesn't know it but this little girl is gonna stay here.
I'm so sad sometimes when we have a cow for a long time then we have to get rid of them. Last fall we had to get rid of our first Angus cow we bought together. I cried for days. You miss seeing them out there in the morning. Sappy me! Mark makes fun of me, but i think he misses some of them to.
