A Bike Ride

So, I went on a bike ride today. I love doing that. I love the wind, the smells, the random people, the clouds,  the steeples, the cows. Speaking of cows, as I rode, I passed a group of them grazing calmly in their field. I looked at them. They looked back. And then they started following me, every last one of them! So as I chuckled to my self I turned around to take a better look. They must have been embarrassed because they where suddenly not interested in me and went back to their munching. And so I rode on. Then I quickly turned back and snapped a picture of them. Ha! I'd caught them!
There they are looking at me: )
 Other pictures of my trip....

So, what do you think? I should have gotten these? 
Haha, they were so hard to walk in...
And, no, I did not see those on my bike ride: )

A Banquet

For a while now my sisters, Mom, and I have been volunteering at the Pregnancy Care Center near us, a place where mothers and fathers can find help for unplanned pregnancies and post-abortion trauma. Last Monday they had a fundraising banquet that Mom, Hannah and I went to. It was really good. Their guest speaker was Ken Bevel from the movies "Courageous" and "Fireproof."  
He talked about how important it is to have a father in the home and how they need to take on the responsibility of fatherhood. He also told his story of his growing up years and how he came to Christ. It was a very amazing story. Anyway, afterwards we got to meet him and get our picture taken with him.
Hannah, Mr. Bevel, me, and Mom.
He is a very nice and friendly man.
Have a wonderful day!

It started yesterday

I don’t remember exactly when I wrote this but it was most likely in 2008 or 2009. Yeah, a long time ago....

It started yesterday
When I tripped and fell.
It started with some play
But ended with a yell.

It ended with a crack
My leg is what I mean,
It started in the shack
When I fell through the screen

The group had got quite wild,
Was sprawled across the floor
With tempers not so mild
And many a crashing door.

Cousin Corry leapt from the attic
Right on top my leg
His apology was dramatic
But he didn’t care a peg.

Then we called the doc
And he could set it right.
But I’d need to stay, around the clock,
In bed all day and night.

That is the end
Of my little skit
There is no bend

Or twist in it.

This is purely fiction.
And no, I do not have a cousin Corry.

The Month of August

So it has been a while! And in the time that I've been, gone Gabriel has made a visit back home! And left again. : ( We had a good time with him!
All the girls, Mom, and Gabe.
Hannah had a birthday party a few weeks ago at the park and we all brought a picnic dinner. Sadly I didn't take any pictures but we had a spectacular time! This is what Gabe ordered for dinner and I made for him. : )
I think he liked it pretty well.
 One morning I was drinking a glass of water and looked out the window to this little fawn.
Can you see him?
 There were two babies and a mother and father (with antlers) that were walking all about our yard. So cute!
There's a baby...
 And then Hannah cut my hair... all off...
See how long it was?
That's about seven inches off....
But it needed to be cut.
Thank you, Hannah!
Random pictures...

Elisabeth in Dad's boots; )
 And...I started crocheting! This is my first project. : )
 I've also recovered a chair...
 And finished a cable scarf...
 How has the month of August been for you?
