Saturday, June 25 –

After a hot afternoon riding horses, nobody wanted anything too heavy for supper. Biscuits and eggs really hit the spot. Especially when teamed with fresh sorghum and Mennonite-made raspberry jelly from Tennessee.

Stockton practiced dragging a heavy piece of wood around to get his horse used to the idea.



River Run


Sunday, June 5 –

This is the kids having a blast in the river on Sunday afternoon when the Tidwells and Renkens came for a visit. The weather was perfect and the recent rains put some water in the Pease river on the northwestern border of the ranch.

The Renkens are from Germany. Rudy came to study at the Sunset International Bible Institute in Lubbock. We’re so glad that we’ve gotten to know them.

Cim and Courtney came out, too.



Rainy Weather

Tuesday, May 31 –

After a few storms this weekend, we’re in good shape as far as moisture goes for the upcoming hot months of summer. However, we’re hoping to get even more rain. These clouds hold a lot of promise for the evening and the forecast is for 80% chance of rain all day tomorrow.
