Maze Weekend Seven (Only One Week Left!)

I'm sure some of you are getting really tired of maze pictures.  Hang in there - we're almost done!!!  Only this week left!  We have a chicken at the maze with chicks.  They're getting big as you can see and they won't stay in their pen.  It's not too bad, we like seeing them run around as do most people.  We did have one lady though who has fowlphobia, or whatever you call it.  A fear of birds. 

This is a picture of the corn toss.  Last week it was mostly men that played, this week it was the ladies, so it seemed.
 I thought Rebekah would like this picture.  This little girl is wearing a "hair pom" that Rebekah made and that she bought in the Granary.  Cute isn't it!  We've sold a lot of these in different school colors.
Ronnie, my nephew, helped out on Saturday as Parking Attendant.  You'd be amazed at how people ignore parking lines and park in any direction they feel like!  Ronnie kept them in line and directed traffic when things got busy so they didn't have to park way down the road.  Thanks, Ronnie!

The goats are so cute and friendly.

I found this poem today and kinda liked it.  It's so easy to be discontented with the simple things. 

Delight in Simple Things
Learn to like what doesn’t cost too much.
Learn to like reading, conversation, music.
Learn to like plain food, plain service, plain cooking.
Learn to like fields, trees, brooks, hiking, rowing, climbing hills.
Learn to like people, even though some of them may be different from you.
Learn to like to work and enjoy the satisfaction of doing your job as well as it can be done.
Learn to like the songs of birds, the companionship of dogs.
Learn to like gardening, puttering around the house, and fixing things.
Learn to like the sunrise and sunset, the beating of rain on the roof and windows, and the gentle fall of snow on a winter day.
Learn to keep your wants simple, and refuse to be controlled by the likes and dislikes of others
