Update...I'm so bad at titles! :D
Seriously I'm still alive, not sure if anybody was wondering, but just in case you were, I'm doing great. Seems like life has just been pretty normal lately, (well as normal as it gets) and not a lot to post about. I mean things happen, like Anna driving up to a stoplight and seeing a lady get hit by a car, or the more normal things like me chasing goats all over the pasture. However blogging just hasn't been my priority lately.
Today I spent a lot of time working on getting goat registrations filled out, and trying to come up with cool names for all my "kids." Quite the brain exercise! I finally got everything together and ready to send off. The deadline for the Oklahoma State Fair is coming up fast, so I have to have everything back by then so I can get them entered. I'm so excited about the fairs, they are some of my favorite shows of the year! We always have a lot of fun.
Elijah is working on building me another milking stand, I have two of them that we bought, but I'm milking three goats and I like to be able to bring them all in to the milking area at once, and then next year Lord willing I'll be milking quite a few more than that so it'll be nice to have another stand. He's gotten really good at welding and is doing a fantastic job on it, I'll have to post some pictures when he gets it finished.
Oh and then Elijah caught this really cool snake the other day, usually I'm not all that fond of snakes but this one was really neat looking and non poisonous so we had fun playing around with it (although Mom was freaking out!) for awhile until we let it go in a tree.
Anyway...lots of rain lately which we are so thankful for! I thought the top picture that Anna took was really neat.
Hope everybody has a great rest of the week!
