State Fair Updates and Seeding

"Then God said, “Let the earth bring forth grass, the herb that yields seed, and the fruit tree that yields fruit according to its kind, whose seed is in itself, on the earth”; and it was so."
Genesis 1:11
Today, Alexis, Hannah and I (Kimber) finished our literary table setting for "Black Beauty." We're inviting Black Beauty to lunch. We dropped off all our other State Fair projects on Saturday. The State Fair officially started on Thursday. Here are some pictures of the finished product.

Black Beauty's Meal - most of it.

"Daughters of the King" place setting (Daughters of the King is the group name for Hannah, Alexis and I). One of our friends, Ms. Ives lent us the plate, cup and saucer. They were her grandmother's and she was very kind to let us use them! :)

The table.

It doesn't look very fancy but we had to remember that we were inviting a horse to lunch so it couldn't be too fancy. Also, we had to use what we had laying around the house since we only had a week to prepare for this! The only problem is that the State Fair provides the table and the tables are round, not square, and 36 inches. So, we'll have to see what happens when we got to set our table up tomorrow!


Daddy seeded the horse farm (again) this morning. He hasn't been doing much work for his business but lots around the house, because it's been raining so much. And he can't aerate and overseed very easily when it's raining! Our neighbor, Mr. Hamill provided us with the seed. He's a very giving, kind person. I raced over to the horsefarm, in the midst of making lunch and took some pictures to chronicle this time in our soon-to-be (we hope!) horse/cow/goat/chicken farm!

See how muddy it is? Daddy sacrificed wet shoes and clothes for the many-animal farm! We're hoping to get something started (fencing, barn etc.) either this winter or in spring - really just when the funds are provided!!

Daddy working it!

Skating on Thursday.

The guy in the red shirt/khaki pants is Caleb. Sorry for all this blur!


An owl "cup buddy."

A couple of days ago at breakfast, Lexi was picking apart her bread and she found a doughy piece. Molding it carefully she created an owl!!! He is pretty cute. Alexis has a very creative mind!

Willingly Jesus',
