Now I (should) lay me down to sleep...

...But first I thought I'd give a quick update on the happenings of the day...

My dad and Andrew worked on the disc most of the day--except for when Mr. Vetsch came with the 3 bulls Dad had spoken for a while back. They unloaded the little fellas (they're just a year old, so I can still call them that) in a small pen close to the house, so we've been able to listen to all the bellering going on between the new guys and the old bulls. It's amazing all of the different sounds that can come out of the same animal!

Mother, Jacob and I worked in the garden a good while--Mom and Jacob transplanted the cabbage, broccoli, cauliflower and pepper plants to the SE of the potato patch and I finished planting the West side of the garden. We still have a block of space to the North of the potato patch, but we're nearing the end. Hooray! I went in the house to prepare supper and then called everyone in when it was ready. We had a hard time dragging Mother away from the potatoes that need weeding though--as she just loves to garden!

Andrew and I finished working on the slide show and we all watched it together tonight. It was lots of fun to reminisce about "The good old days" when we were young. :)

Oh, one more thing I was going to mention before posting this... My bulls stayed away from the electric fence all day! The only problem is, now they've broken down a wire in a different part of their pasture and 2 of the bulls were in the next pasture this morning with 3 cows that we were trying to keep them away from. Animals sure keep life from getting dull!
