~Zippidee~Do~Dah~

Man, oh man...how time flies!






For example, 18 years were just a blink. Why, it was "just the other day" Lukas started Kindergarten and I cried mixed tears of excitement/worry...hoping we were sending him to school with the knowledge of ABC's and tools of scissors and glue.




And...now he's graduated from High School!

And...again I cry tears of excitement/worry..hoping he's equipped with the tools of faith, character and work ethic to tackle all that life might present.


Where did the time go?


Levi and David (a cousin who is like a brother) were his escorts at graduation.



After a year of waiting......


A Cheyenne business was hired (and paid well) to install a gas log fireplace. I believe many take advantage of our proximity by providing shoddy (was tempted to use a different word here) customer service. I'm still waiting for them to come out "next week" to finish the grout job and install a mantel. However, despite my irritation, I believe I ended up with something better thanks to Lukas's Woodshop teacher, Chris Cooper!



I just love how it turned out!!! and I can do the grout work myself. Let's see..February, March, April, May, June and now July...perhaps they meant next week??

Summer's Drumbeat....


~fences fixed, calves branded, turned out on pasture..


~stubble plowed, summer fallow x 2, first cutting of hay...


~wheat's turning, Combines readied, harvest next week....


Next week!!!


Summer is flying by
