A Few Things I've Learned...

These guys are pretty cute.

Even if it is nearly impossible to get a picture of all 3 without at least one of them doing this...

They always behave like perfect ladies and gentlemen. *cough* No elbows on the table, and we never, ever, not ever put our legs up with a skirt on.

This is what a stampede looks like around here.



This one crows....


Greg can build a mean goat playset.
People from the burbs can look like rednecks after only 6 months of living in the country!
In our defense, we were watching the Tour of California from the end of our property. Lance Armstrong rode right past our house!

Lance is in this bunch. He rides for Radio Shack, but honestly, they were a blur, riding past at about 50 mph.


After the riders went past, there were several cars with replacement bikes following.

And last, but certainly not least..... it is a really bad feeling to see one of these. Especially while wearing cute little flip flops. A dead rattler is the only good rattler. And yes, after locking the dogs in the kennel, going down to the house to get my boots (albeit rain boots...), camera and shovel, I personally dispatched this sassy little snake. I hope his friends saw and move on.....

You are my hero. You have slipped into the new lifestyle with grace and ease (or so the blog says) :) Hope you are all really enjoying it! Miss you!!!

Wow, Teresa! You've been crazy busy with more huge changes since I last checked in with you! Glad to see everybody is doing well and you are having excited adventures... be careful of the rattlers! If you find any interesting bugs, you can send them my way... or just send pictures... =)

Chickens and goats and snakes...OH, MY!! I cannot believe how big your kiddos are getting! They are adorable and I think the goofy pics are the best ones. I saw Lance, too! lol! He didn't have time to wave at me, though. He was pretty busy.

How did the goat like the bike race? lol!

Well you are quite the little country girl aren't you? That goat plaything looks like fun. Loving the pictures!
