Joshua's 11

Joshua turned 11 last Fri. Joshua, you are growing up to be such a wonderful young man. We had our traditional cinnamon rolls for breakfast. Its a challenge to fit 11 candles on a cinnamon roll. He did pick the biggest one. heehee

Such concentration. Stella and M&M sure wanted to blow out candles too. Had to explain it will be a while longer until their birthdays.
More concentration.
For those of you who may be interested the horned toad caught this summer is 13. They are really out this summer. So glad we're seeing more of them.

Round Pen

Patty got a round pen last week with the help of her wonderful grandparents. She and a friend started working horses last Thursday. It was a joy to watch Patty. She loves it, really loves it.

Then, the middles and the little's got Chip up and spent the day playing, loving, and riding him. They had a big time.

Piano Ensemble in Arlington

Joshua and Joy performed in an ensemble this last weekend. There were 15 students on 15 grand pianos and wow, what a site. They played a medley to the Sound of Music and it was fabulous!! Here they are practicing in the digital lab. Performing on stage. The picture really doesn't give the big grand effect. Joshua and Joy, you did awesome!! Your hard work paid off.:)

Horned toads and stickers

This is Michael's forth horned toad to catch in the last week. This one shot blood at Michael when he grabbed it. We've read that they will shoot blood, however, this is the first experience of one actually doing so. Notice on his right eye there is still a little blood. Interesting creatures.
Patty's Brazil team had a garage sale/bake sale/car wash this last weekend and we had some pricing stickers left over. The for children at home today asked if they could play with them. :)
Matthew, when you get that skinny your pants fall off.

Tiny household

I was going to post this last week when I had a tiny household. Michael, Matthew, Stella, and Amy is all I had as Roy, Patty, Joshua, Joy, and Jimmie were at a church camp in Mason. Annie and Jenny were in town working. My threesome were such big helpers milking and playing with March to gentle her. What do you think, is she looking gentle?
Matthew leading March around.
Bessie's new bell so we can hear her when she is out in the pasture.

Stella keeping Mable from giving Amy a bath. Although, when I went to pour up our milk I asked M,M, and S if they wanted me to take Amy in or if they would stay close to her. I came back to Amy all by herself and Mable giving her Big kisses!!
Stella got hold of the camera and took pictures of her babies.
