Sorry I have not been updating this blog.
Emily and I both have our own blogs now and find it easier to keep up that way. Here are links if anyone is interested.

The pictures below are of the first week's work. Lord willing, there will be a weekly update (at the least) with photos showing the results of a week of work.
Before the ruckus begins
Meet (from L to R) Mr. Bill Jordan (contractor), Gwen, Moses, and Hosea
Before the end of day 1, Gwen and Mr. Bill brought a load of clay.
Day 2 began with an extra large dump truck and a smaller dump truck full of red clay coming up the driveway. By the end of the day, there had been 4 total loads of the smaller dump truck and 1 of the large truck.
Papa's little tractor came in handy :)
Enjoying the show
The dirt foundation needed one final touch- the tampering! So Mr. Bill brought his nifty "little" gas powered tamping tool over and finished packing the dirt. A couple of us were even permitted to give it a go ourselves.
Due to the concrete finisher not being available until Monday, this ends the work week.

Bella-May is the sweetest calf we have had and is just a joy!
I will try to get some better pix later, but I just wanted to get this up before she got too big!
So, here you can get the idea. I had to take the pix when momma was milking...with her new milk machine woot woot! She has been saving for so long and I was sooo excited for her when she got it!!! It is taking a little figuring, but I think it will be wonderful!
May Christ be with you!!!

Well, power is back!!! Yay! But, it is still reallllllly cloudy outside. Things are such a mess around the property...God is so good to keep us all safe! The more I think about it, the more I am amazed that no one was hurt.
We saw this morning that the passenger mirror on Daddy's car is busted and the cars are all dented from the hail.
I still can't believe the force of the tornado yesterday!
Oh! And...our chicks came in today! ;) Sooo, I will have to do a post with some pix of them too.
Here are a few pictures that I took this morning. I am sooo glad the tractor was under the carport when it all happened. You can see what a mess the storm made under there. Mom's wicker furniture was knocked over.

Well, well, well. Where do I start!? First...praise the Lord we are all safe! Right now, I am sitting in the daaaark school room with the generator running. We have no power due to the tail end of the tornado that went through our property!
I only know what things were like through my eyes so that is how I will tell it!
The weather was getting bad so daddy and momma went to get Tina and Lydia who were at Jake and Tina's place. Em, Micah, the two little girls and I stayed home. I was doing some work on the computer in front of the school room window and all of a sudden the sky went black and I could hear the wind raging. Then, everything went white with hail. Emily and I rushed everyone to the hallway and then I realized that my dog, Luther, was outside. I rushed out...thankfully he was right outside! We waited in the house. I really, really thought that the windows were going to be knocked in from the wind and hail. Emily was in the school room trying to get ahold of mom and dad when they pulled in...praise the Lord they were safe!
The little girls were clinging to me crying...it was quit the climatic time!
Thank the Lord everything stopped and we are all safe! There are several trees up by the roots and countless treetops and limbs all over the place.
It really makes you feel small when you look at everything! How great is God! To think that THOSE winds obey Him!!! Wow!
Daddy just got back from helping our neighbor, Mr. Kevin M. put a tarp over his roof...it was leaking and he needed help, so Daddy and Micah went over.
Em is at Tina's cooking pizza. ;)
All I can say is God is amazing. SO amazing!
I have a ton more pix...but it all looks the same when you see all of it!
It is super black outside...kinda cool...kinda not.
We found out for sure that we did get a tornado. Momma looked it up on her droid (love it!) and they said that a tornado went through here. There will be a ton of clean up to do. I don't think there is a bit of property that is not covered in pine needles and sticks!
Amazingly all the horses are fine! None of the animals were hurt, but Maggie's shed is half way across the property!
Okay...so! Here are a couple pix. Quite and exciting day!!! Never a dull moment...
Christ be with you!
