That's why we eat them...


Stupid cows! Got home from church and was gettting dinner ready and looked out the kitchen window and saw a few of our cows out. They love to get the gate open and run - beings I am 9
months pregnant there was no chasing done by me - I drove the Denali down and blocked the way - Cody ran to the gate and John jumped on the Ranger - modern day cow wrangling! We got them all in in record time and without any arguments or name calling! We are making progress!

Still no baby - went to the hospital on Friday with contractions but she hasn't dropped yet so we were sent back home to wait. (Jaima shared this with her Sunday School class today!) I am so ready to meet Jaiden and I am very impatient - but also realize she will come when she is ready. My verse for this week: "I wait for the Lord, my soul waits, and in His Word I put my hope." Psalm 130:5. So, I wait, Jaiden waits, and the hope that God has promised us in Jeremiah 29:11 waits.

Cody is downstairs playing his guitar. He was grounded for a few grades that we found to be a little lacking :) John figured he would give him an hour (also, so Dad could take a nap! haha) and then he'll tell him it's time to go outside and bust his hump!

John mowed the yard today - looks like we could bale it - it was so long - but we have been so busy this fall that lawn mowing was not a priority!

All of the beans are harvested. Right now the boys are working on getting the new dryer and grain leg ready - we lost a lot in the storm we had in August. One thing John and I have learned is not to not let chaos ruin our hope - we know that tomorrow is another day, that God always provides and that when we worry it means we don't trust Him and His plans for us!
