Weekend wanderings...

Weekends have never had a special distinction
around here. With the exception of church on Sunday
mornings, our days on the farm run from one to the next.
Until now.
Gracie Jo started grade one this September and weekends
have just taken on a preciousness I've never known...

So what do we do with a lovely Sunday afternoon,
with air so crisp and fresh it reaches way down
into your chest and bursts with expectation...
You put on a thick sweater, tuck in the blankets,
and wander wherever the road leads you!

And we're off! (Looks like Jude is going to need a
new hat - heehee! - time to get out the hooks!)

Ready, Mom!

Country roads, take me home
to the place I belong...

My *second* favorite herd of cows...and 'Curly' the bull :)

And this girl, who has a zest for life like no other.
So like her father...

Yep, not sure what to say about this.
Other than I love him :)

We do not remember days;
we remember moments.

I can do it!!

Can you feel the joy?

That's our girl.
Did I mention she takes after her father ;)


Memory is a way of holding onto the things you love,
the things you are, the things you never want to lose.
~The Wonder Years

We hope your weekend wanderings are
making wonderful memories too.
