First and foremost I want to thank you all for the amazing outpouring of love and concern that you have shown us over the loss of Buddy. It has touched my heart to the core. The kind words have helped us to begin to heal. I am trying to get around to each one of you to say a personal thank you but it is taking me a long time to get this accomplished so please forgive me if I don't succeed right away. The tears still flow freely and my keyboard is asking for a personal flotation device! Each day is better then the day before thankfully. I hope this picture does not offend anyone but I wanted to share it with you. Our yard man asked if he could make a marker for the grave and we said of course. He made this cross which is a comfort to me as it has been throughout my life as a christian woman. Again thank you all, once again Bloggityville has stepped up to the plate and made a difference in someones life! xoxo
It was exciting around here the first day of school for T and D. I jumped in the Rhino and drove over through the woods to see all the neighborhood kids dressed in their new school clothes. Crisp white sneakers, shiny scrubbed faces, pretty outfits, the boys hair actually combed and the girls with cute pig tails. Everyone had the obligatory backpack which is what all the kids use now. D starts Kindergarten this year and T goes into first grade.
Of course we had to get pics of them on the front steps as always. Don't you all have pictures of the first day of school with your kids on the front steps?
Getting on the bus.
We went over that night to see how their first day had gone and they both said they loved it so that was a good start to the school year!
Yesterday we went 4-wheeling. It was overcast when we left but burned off to a lovely sunny day. I hadn't been anywhere all week so decided I needed to get off the farm for a few hours. Here is T and D waiting while we get loaded up.
It was beautiful on the trails with sparkling streams.

Miss T spied some blackberries ready for picking so we stopped and had a snack. We were on the lookout for bear as they like to feast on the berries too.
There is more to this story but I will save it for another time. To give you a little hint, it involves 'natural living people'....................to be continued.............
