I think... YES I am still alive and kicking.

First of all I will apologize for not publishing a post for so long, but things have been REALLY crazy around here for a wile now.
Since my last post, Dad has gotten a job working for Pella Window and Door Co. again, and we have bought 3 milk cows. Also we are in the process of building a barn, blacksmith shop, put up fencing, and building a chicken coop, and all of that has to be done before Dad starts his job ( Which will be on July 6th.).
This last week 2 of our cows have mastitis, and one of them also has milk fever. The 1 with both diseases may not live, but we are praying and hoping for the best. If all goes well I will have 3 cows to milk by had twice a day!!! UHH any one want to come over for milking lessons, and don't worry, I won't be disappointed if I don't get to milk all three. LOL
The barn project is going Very slow, but we have hired a crew of Mennonites to set the post's, put on the wall bands, install the loft floor joist's, and put on the roof. They say that they can get all that done in 1 day!!! I will have to see it to believe it.
Got to go for now,
