This is the life.

Sort of.

I love living on a farm most of the time, but at 7am on Saturday morning...notsomuch.

However, seeing how enthusiastic my kids are and how willing they are to put in the time and effort to take care of the animals we have (dogs, cats, bunnies, chickens, pigs, and cows) makes me feel both incredibly proud and a little lazy. (Ha!)

I (finally!) remembered to bring my camera with me to the barn this morning to capture a couple shots of the kids doing what they do best (being awesome). They are such hard workers and never complain I could learn a thing or two from them, really.

Here you go:

Just so you get a visual on how BIG the calf bottles are! Crazy, huh!?

This is this morning at about 7am (so forgive the farm I-just-woke-up look, mmkay?). :) Left to right - Fischer, Jack, Carter, and Natalie... pretty much pieces of my heart all lined up outside my body.

Natalie and the calf she named "Jeremiah." (...can't make this stuff up.)

Carter and "Jason." (I know.)

Fischer didn't exactly stay awake through the whole process. Can't say that I blame him.

Unshowered and sporting yesterday's make-up. Jealous?

Ohmyheart, I love this little boy!

Hope you guys have a fantastic weekend!


  1. Aw all those faces (Jeremiah & Jason included:) would make 7 am look a lot better. I confess, I'm skeptical that coffee cup isn't actually your milk this morning but I'll pretend to believe its for size comparison ;-). Also you look cute with no shower & yesterday's makeup :)

    2. Arg! I only deleted it cause a stupid auto correct, let me try again..... I love that Fischer is decked out in "Neene

    3. Seriously I quit! I love that Fischers in stuff I made him, there! My iPad apparently doesn't Ike my nickname!!!!!!

    4. Ha! You crack me up!

      I love that he's decked out in your handiwork, too! Makes me smile.

      Oh and it should be against the law to drink milk out of a coffee mug - it's disgusting. (I'm going to need therapy for my dairy issues eventually, I'm sure.
