Emu eggs were found this past week. There were 7 in all. That is just what we need is more of the predator birds running around the farm. Actually it is one of the few animals that I am really scared of. They stalk you just like the raptors in Jurassic Park. It is so odd to have one bird step out to get your attention while the 2 others (that you had know idea were anywhere in sight) get behind and circle you. I have seen my kids come running out of the woods on more than one occasion screaming that an emu was after them. We gathered the eggs for our neighbor who happens to own them. He suggested we eat them for breakfast. NO THANK YOU!!!
Don't let his angelic face sway you into believing he is innocent!! The first picture is one of Joshua's best friends who is always faithful to help out around here. He is the child that left the can lids off the feed cans so when I went to scoop out feed I found a possum. You can only imagine the fun that we have around here with the two of these boys!!!
While I was stopping our 4 year old from banging on the apple tree with a hammer, I noticed that we had apples. We so missed our apples last year due to the drought. Lord willing this year, I will be making a ton of applesauce in just a few short months!
My husband is going to kill me for this one so Cheri if I quit blogging you might want to come over and check on me. This one was just to funny to pass up not posting it. I got up early to take the two boys in the above pictures to a school function. When I came back home, I was stunned to find that there was another woman in my bed and on MY pillow to be exact. Michael and Seth had no idea that I had even left. Seth came crawling in our bed sometime in the middle of the night. You just never know what you might find here on our farm!
grace and peace,
