Sorry its been so long

Sorry it has been so long since we posted last. We have lots of fun pictures to show you and posts to put on but right now we are having technical difficulties with the blog. We're working on figuring it out soon so we can show you what we've been up to. But for now we have 4 calves and lots more coming within the next month. We have been able to do a little springs work in the fields and are looking forward to doing more in the next month. We hope everything is going really great with each of you and that you are enjoying spring!

This evening we had a church social/Bible bowl party in our bunkhouse.  It was so much fun to get together as a church family to spend time together on a really nice day.  The best part though was watching the movie "Courageous"!  We have all wanted to watch it for a long time now.  We have seen all of the other 3 movies ( Flywheel, Facing the Giants, and Fire Proof ) and liking all of them we were really looking forward to seeing "Courageous"!  It really made me think and look at my life again.  What really is important in this life.  We only have a short time on this earth and every day flies by so quickly.   You may never have as much time as you want with the people who mean the most to you in this life.  Am I really living my life the way God has planed for me?  Am I loving the ones around me the way God loves me?  These are all questions we should ask ourselves everyday to help us keep focused on the things in the world that really matter.

Deuteronomy 31:6Be strong and courageous.........for the LORD your God goes with you; he will never leave you nor forsake you."

We recommend this to anyone!  It's a good movie!

If I take the wings of the morning, and dwell in the uttermost part of the sea, even there your hand shall lead me, and your right hand shall hold me.  Psalm 39:9-10

New Driver!!!!!!!!!!

Yesterday we went to Bismarck and Janae took her drivers permit test at the capital.  She's been waiting a long time to get her permit so we were all excited for her when she passed!
While Janae and Mom were waiting to get in to take the drivers test Mindy, Paul and I (Jody) walked around the capital building, everything was so interesting and old. :)

2 Choronicles 7:14
    if My people who are called by My name will humble themselves, and pray and seek My face, and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin and heal their land.

Eager Beavers

Today we had Pathfinders, Adventures, and Eager Beavers.  Jody and I did the little Beaver Chip 'Animal Homes' with our little kids.  It was fun, they have so much energy!  They learn quick though! :)  I only have pictures of our Eager Beavers, non of the rest.  Sorry :(

As arrows are in the hand of a mighty man; so are children of the youth.  Happy is the man that hath his quiver full of them:  Psalm 127:5

Nice Weather

The Weather has been so nice again this week, the temp is 40-50 degrees every day.

Janae started working with her 2 year old colt Dixon today, but he's a little confused with having a bit in his mouth and the fact that someone is sitting on his back!

Numbers 22:28-31
Then the Lord opened the donkey's mouth, and she said to Balaam, "what have I done to you to make you beat me these three times?"  29 Balaam answered the donkey, "you have made a fool of me! If I had a sword in my hand, I would kill you right now."  30 the donkey said to Balaam,  "Am I not your own donkey, which you have always ridden, to this day? Have I been in the habit doing this to you? " "no," he said.   31 Then the Lord opened Balaam's eyes, and he saw the angel of the Lord standing in the road with his sword drawn.  So he bowed down and fell facedown.
