This is our Saturday. What you don’t see in the photos is the in-between whines and maybe a mother who is a little impatient, however our intentions are always love. On most Saturdays you’ll find us at home. Farm folk, if you can call us that, tend to be home bodies I think, either out of habit, or the amount of work that always needs to be done. However, we love it here and often can’t find a reason good enough to go. Plus four young kids are more easily managed here, where we are comfortable!
That being said, if there is a rodeo within 100km, we will probably be sitting in the stands, soaking up the sun and eating the crap concession food til our tummies hurt. The kids roam, finding other kids to play with and dirt piles to climb on. That was this Saturday. Chores first, then an outing to the Entwistle Rodeo. Home for a few more chores, supper, and then the big girls laid their heads in the tent permanently set up outside the house. We are fortunate enough to live close to a large lake, so at eleven Travis and I sat on our deck and enjoyed the Canada Day fire works that went off a day late because it was too rainy the night before. The thought crossed my mind to get up and grab my camera, but I was just too cozy on the deck to move.
Before I have animal activists wanting to give any opinions on some photos, please know. There was no animals injured or hurt. In fact, those chickens from the scramble have a new good home with the little cowboys and cowgirls that caught them. But seriously, scroll down to the chicken scramble, it was a hoot.
Since wedding season has started the personal posts have decreased. However I’ve carved out time in my schedule to make them happen, because they do make my heart happy and I do want these photos taken and kept and remembered. On another note, I am looking for a family, perhaps similar to ours. A family in need of a bath at the end of the day, that are home bodied, farm folk that put their life and love into their homestead, family and crop. If you know of one, let me know!
Wishing you a wonderful week.
