Ally playin' and Kaleb singin'

We feasted on plenty of delicious corn on the cob from our garden this season...we harvested over 250 ears.
I am using zucchini from our garden and making zucchini bread...the kids devour it as soon as it cools from the oven.
Kaleb has the best Sunday school class, taught by a husband and wife in our church.  The two Sunday School songs he sings are my favorite.
In the next video I post, Travis wants to whistle some songs for everyone, which he is very good at actually.

A short-term addition to the farm

Allyson named our Hereford steer "A1"

God Save the SouthGovernor, if I had foreseen the use those people designed to make of their victory, there would have been no surrender at Appomattox Court House; no, sir, not by me. Had I foreseen these results of subjugation, I would have preferred to die at Appomattox with my brave men, my sword in this right hand.
        (General Lee to Governor Stockdale in August 1870)

Better late than never...

I think she has been ready for a while now, because it only took two or three times of pushing for her to get her balance. But Meradeth has been very apprehensive about taking her training wheels off. She is a pro at her scooter, but hasn't made the connection with her bike.

Silver Springs

Approximately 1.5 hour drive from our house in the Ocala National Forest.
Saw these turtles on our glass bottom boat ride.
This gator followed our boat next to where I was sitting.
They had a few different animals here and I think the giraffes are the cutests. The 1930-1940s movies "Tarzan" were filmed here and a bunch of the monkies they used in the movies escaped and have lived there ever since.  You could hear them all over the place when we were walking.
Almost the whole place is covered in trees like this, so we were basically never in the sun the entire time. What a fun day we had!  Next time we are going kayaking at Juniper Springs.
