Isaac and Jonathan enjoyed their short trek out into God's seldom seen creation. In fact, they met a road grader on their walk out of the bog, who asked if they were lost, and after hearing that they had actually camped out there, said he thought they were the first white men to ever see that area! Yes, it's really remote!
They managed to pick up a few friends on the way back - beaver they trapped.
Silas has been working for a guy washing his equipment. Nice job when you love John Deere equipment like Silas does!
Life's hard when you're just a little cowboy! Looks like a little guy from the old prairie days.
Isaac, Hosanna and Priscilla went fishing today up town. Sure a beautiful day! And yes, that white stuff in the distance is still ice on the lake.
Whatcha looking for, Priscilla? Actually, she was looking at loons.
Arthur and I headed to flood country today to do some "city" shopping. Talk about water!!! Mile after mile of fields of water. I wonder if they will even get in the fields this summer. One field was full of pelicans, like hundreds and hundreds of them if not thousands! A nearby road was completely white with them. What a marvelous sight of God's creation! Not sure the farmers would agree! Saw quite a few farms dry behind their personal dikes, but with roads under water, they were using boats.
God does care about the little things and delights in giving us the desires of our hearts. A few days ago after cleaning up flower beds and our herb garden, I thought to myself, "I sure could use some new mulch. Like maybe three bags of red and one or two brown." Never gave it much more thought because mulch up here is kinda pricey and we have more important things to spend our money on. Well, today while at Menards, I spotted a bargin section out in the lumber yard. There was a palllet shrinkwrapped with red and brown bags of mulch! Seven bags to be exact, all for the wonderful price of $5.00! Sometimes I need the reminder that God cares about even the little things!
