My parents and Jacob and I have been working out in the fields this week, as I think I've mentioned before. With the guys being gone cleaning grain so long in the spring, it's a mad rush to get our seeds in the ground once they're done helping everyone else.
This is Mother driving the big tractor, working under an alfalfa field with the Wishek disc...
Jacob and I rushed ahead of her to the places where the rock piles used to be and cleaned up the few remaining rocks: (Do you see the rock flying through the air?)
The railroad took a total of 24 rock piles off of one quarter of land--plus took a few piles from another field. We hope they'll come back this fall to get the rest!
Below is one of the used-to-be-rock-pile sites:
I didn't get a picture of Dad working, because he was in another field, but he got most of the wheat planted today. Hooray! Tomorrow, Lord willing, the corn will go in the ground. Then there's the durum, and the oats......
Did I ever tell you all that my goat, Tulip kidded the other day? Well, she did! Here she is pictured with her two kids, Roger and Osborne. :) Roger's really tiny, so we have to make sure he gets enough milk at each chores...
These two snuggle-bugs are Andrew's kids. They enjoy curling up in the grain troughs!
I have several more pictures I'd like to share, but it's almost tomorrow already, and I am tired after a long day of planting in the garden and working in town, so I'll wish you all a good night; leave you with a quote; and be off to dream land. ~

PS. It was so good to have Andrew at home with us last night and you know what? He even took the time to fix our Internet problem last night! (Thank you brother.)
