Naomi's Watermelon and other things

As always, we have been busy around here! We have been enjoying the horses and keeping the farm going. :) One of the four youngest kids' projects this year was a little garden of their own. A couple of days ago we were very excited to see this good sized watermelon in Naomi's! :) She was very proud of it, and we all enjoyed it very much. We have a new addition to our farm...Naomi's kitten, Crockett. (We found him near an uninhabited cabin.) I will try to get a pic or two of him up soon.
Until then, Christ be will you all!
In Christ and for His glory alone,
Anna, for us all
Naomi with her watermelon

That piece is as big as she is!!!!

Our Crape-Myrtles are blooming and looking so pretty!

Momma has been making cheese galore! We have so enjoyed the homemade cheddar! She made the best batch yet the other day and there is hardly a day when we do not have a giant pot of milk sitting on the stove and/or the melted wax ready for the cheese to be dipped. Above is a cheese wheel with the first layer of wax on it. It is such a blessing to have a mother who loves making good food and loves to teach us girls how! :)

Lydia is working on getting her muffin "badge" for Keepers of the Faith and we have enjoyed some wonderful muffins.

Daddy painted the front of the house!!! :) It looks so good and I will try to get a pic of that up very soon. :) It's wonderful to have the house looking closer and closer to done. :)

I don't know if you can see, but it is raining here (Click on the picture to make it bigger). It was raining while perfectly sunny and I thought it was so lovely. There were thousands of little prisms falling and catching the sun making it look like thousands of tiny rainbows.

You can see the rain better here.

And for the last picture of the evening, Naomi and her stallion, Tex. I love this picture...though you can't really see Tex, you can see how cute Naomi looks while on him. :)
That's all for now.
God bless you always!!!
