Spring is here! I know I'm a little late, but today just feels so "springy." :) Things are starting to look green and the flowers are coming up, I just love it. There is one thing though that I don't like about the warm weather if you can believe it. Wasps!! We have tons of them, and soon as the weather gets warm they come out from their hiding places. It really seems that they know I don't like them and are constantly trying to find me. So if you were to see me suddenly ducking and running like crazy.....it's just the wasps. :D I do have reason to run though, I've been stung before and it's NOT fun.

Yesterday I had to go to the court house again for Jury Duty, I rushed through my milking and chores in order to leave the house at 8:30. I made it, and got there in time. After about 10 minutes a lady came out and told us we could leave! Yay! So I think that's the end of my 2 month "term" of Jury service.

I'm sure you read all about Andrew's birthday party on my Mom's blog. It sure was alot of fun. Andrew is such a blessing to me, he's my main goat helper and I sure don't know what I'd do without him. He's always ready to help with the not so fun things about goat raising, such as disbudding the babies, tattooing, castrating, and trimming hooves. And then of course helping out with the everyday milking and feeding. What a great brother! Speaking of tattooing, I really need to get some more of the kids done...I'm planning on taking some of them to a show the middle of April and that's got to be done first. :) I need to get some new pictures of the kids, those little Boers are getting so big!! Really cute too! :)

Hi Bethany!

I like the flower pictures! Tell Anna she did a good job! I have been stung by a wasp too. The wasp hid in my baseball glove and when I put my hand in it stung me. It was not fun either!

What beautiful photos!

I don't have a special fondness for wasps either - I've been stung on more than one occasion!

It must be nice having jury duty all out of they way. :)

What a special little brother you have! It's not just anyone who will help with tasks like that!
