On June 24 2013 around 11:30 Britannica's cria was born. We had been working in the front pasture earlier cleaning up some of the mess from the flood. We went inside for a water and snack break. Lewis looked out the dinning room window that over looks the front pasture to see all the girls huddled around. We ran out with the camera to capture the little ones first moments in the world.
We are so excited Britannica's cria is a........
More storms were moving in shortly after she was born. The tempeture dropped, winds picked up and it started to rain.This little one did not want to stay in the dry shelter instead she wanted to run in the rain. So I made a little jacket for the cria to keep her warm and dry.
And this sweet little girls name is.....
We were on our first camping trip of the year when we got a call from our farm sitter that there was a tree down on the fence and it knocked own the power line. So we cut trip short and headed home. And luckily we did....when we woke up the next morning everything was flooded and our driveway was a mess.
Even with the mess we have been cleaning up I feel very blessed that our family and animals are all safe and our home did not have any flood damage. As we watch the local news our thoughts and prayers go out to the families have been hit hard by this flood.
The kids are able to find the joys in the mess of the storm. They have been enjoying there "private beach" as it last and "new sandboxes" through out the yard.
Remember to look for some joy in the midst of any "storms" you may be experiencing

A simple, special, extraordinary moment.
A moment I want to pause, savor and remember.

I haven't been on here much lately to update everyone with pictures and stories of what is happening on the farm. Just over a week ago I found out that my daughter Isabel had active Lymes.We noticed something was up when she had a mild fever for a couple days and was very sleepy than a butterfly rash appeared. She has been on antibiotics for a little over a week now and is feeling much better. The ticks have been really bad this year! Seems like we are finding ticks on someone almost every day. I am working on find a good diy all natural tick repellent and will share it with you after we test it out. During the past few weeks we have been slowly working on our garden that will hold our farm sign. I thought I would share some pictures of our progress so far. There are more things to be planted and a farm sign to be placed.
So what do you think of the garden so far?
