No photos but we had a busy day. Zack and Julie helped me feed and milk this morning. I am going to have to lock Sammi in her stall at night. Robyn and Dan are robbing her milk! I go to milk each morning and get about 2 quarts from Diva (I go before daylight so I can milk her before the boys get to her) and don't even get a cupful from Sammi. Diva is only letting the boys nurse a little then pushes them away. Auntie Sammi will just stand still forever if they want to nurse her. So tonight Sammi is getting locked away from the boys so I can at least have her morning milk before they get to her. Diva has gone back to her normal Diva self. If she is through eating then I am through milking according to her rules. I end up having to pen her in the corner of her stall and finish milking her out while she is putting on a act of not being able to breathe! I fell for that when I first got her but she needs a new trick. The boys are getting so tall! They still don't want to be around me very much as they are afraid I will hurt them. They haven't forgotten the disbudding yet. After morning chores I took the kids to the flea market. We didn't find any treasures though. We came home and gave the animals a treat and fresh water then went next door so they could swim for awhile. After a fun afternoon of swimming they got ready for vacation bible school. It started tonight and they seemed to have had a good time when I picked them up. Think they are going to enjoy being busy this week. I will post pics of the Diva's babies tomorrow. We will be cleaning the goat pen and I am sure they will be into everything while we are raking. Hope you had a great weekend and your week is filled to the brim with blessings

Peggy, will Zack and Julie be with you all summer? Sounds like you are all having a good time together.

I am so sorry you had such an emotional weekend. I am sure it is really hard to say goodbye for you and the kids. I have said it before you are always going to provide such wonderful memories for them.

You are someone very special to all of us. We need our Hidden Haven to escape the humdrum city.

Hope you have a wonderful week.

It is through these day to day goings on that I get my fix of The Tales of the Homestead. I've been occupied the last few days so I am trying to catch up. All the activities and chores and movies and animals et al.....your grandkids are very lucky. I think it would be fun to interview them and see what each one had to say about staying there. Now that would be a great memory book!
Love and hugs,
