What a funny day!

It was just one of those days. There were so many times when I caught myself saying, "I need to put that on the blog!"  Now, I wonder if I'll be able to remember any of it.... :-)

Its time to hay!!!  I LOVE haying season.  My sons are no different. :-)  Dwight and the boys hooked up the mower to the tractor and began mowing.  After the first loop, we realized that the blades needed to be a bit sharper, so we brought it back in for Dwight to change out the blades.  While this began, Mama made some yummy protein shakes with frozen peaches and bananas.  Mmmm....  Ty spilled his on the concrete. :-)  That wasn't a surprise.

Time to go to fiddle lessons over at Brendan and Sarah Booher's.  I loaded up Burnell, Orin, and Chance, and Wyatt.  We also loaded up the last of the kids (aka baby goats).  Yesterday, I sold 3!  Go Craigslist!  The remaining one belonged to Jeff and Lysa Severson, who were weaning it over at our place.  Lysa and I managed to meet and transfer the bleating goat into her rig.  That poor goat was now totally hoarse from the long night of yelling.  :-)  This is quite funny to me.

The boys did great at their lessons and Brendan taught them extra long.  Burnell learned a new song, Rubber Dolly.  Orin's working on Jesus Loves Me, which Brendan accompanied today with his guitar.  Chance has just begun to learn Twinkle Twinkle.  They are all doing quite well.  Sarah gave us tuna sandwiches and a special treat ... one of Brendan's new cranberry scones.  Mmmm... love those scones!  The boys all played with the puppies, golden retrievers.  If I didn't know how much work those dogs would be, I would love to have one.  They are soooooo cute!

Back home to hay with Daddy!  Yeah!  It was hilarious!  Dwight drives the tractor along with either everyone tucked in there with him, or some of them running along behind.  Adorable!  Then, at the end, Orin gets a ride on the mower.  Dwight has Burnell drive the Bobcat down to help him unhitch.  Then Chance gets to drive the quad up the hill with all of us on board.  I love seeing these little men growing up. :-)

Cutest thing .... Quint walking around with his hands in his pockets.  He struts around like he's all that!  Oh, my!

Well, that's all I can remember for now.....
