A girl day :)

Veteran Tribute

This is a wonderful tribute to our military troops, past and present. It reminds me of how our son and brother, Isaac Goodwin, served in the US Army for eight years. I am so proud of him.

This one's for Mom :)

The other day, Mom and I were outside weeding and I called to one of our baby goats.

"How on earth do you remember all their names?!" She asked.

"I don't know... I guess it's like if you name a child you remember it's name. OH! We remember B.B.'s name (our dog) because we say it all the time. You don't talk to the goats as much as we do! I guess that's why you don't know the names."

"Wow. You need to do a blog post, just for me, so I can see the names with pictures!" She suggested.

So, this one's for mom! :)

This is Tillie. Named for our Mimae (French for Grandma)

Precious. Olivia named this one :)

Bruce, our little buckling. Skittish little thang :)

Blaze. This is Bruce's sister. Not as skittish thankfully. As you can see, we never got around do disbudding her. *sigh*

Eunice. No, she doesn't normally look like this, she was just chewing :D

Ronald. His brother's name was Regan :)
This little goatie thinks he's human! Sweetie!

Lois. Eunice's sister :)
Yes, she and Eunice are Precious' babies.

Penelope. We call her Nellie for short, it'd be inconvenient when calling her to have to say "PENELOPE!" everytime :)
Nellie is Blaze and Bruce's mommy.
We think she might be expecting again.

We have another goat, Cornelius, but he's pretty messy right now and didn't want to post a picture of him :)
He's our buck.

So, these are our goats :)
Hope you enjoyed!
God bless,

Can you say a perfect day for the BEACH!

A few weeks ago Anna, Emily, & I went out to the beach with Jean Marie!
It was so much fun! I hope you enjoy! :D

"We're on our WAY!!! "

It's the ocean! Ya!

Trying to put up the umbrella using our water jug as a sledge hammer. :D

It took us a while. :D

My shadow

My hat & the ocean! For some odd reason I like this picture! :D

Emmy :D

Anna & Jean coming back with the goodies :D

And yes, the umbrella did not stay because of the wind. :D

Here we go again...

I love this picture of Anna!

A man and his wife saw that we were struggling to put up the umbrella, came up to us and asked us if we needed help, and he helped us and the umbrella flew away no longer. :D

de Feet!

The whole gang

Jean said about her cloths, and here it is...
"The only thing I could think of was Victorian, and I stuck to it"

Sandy-footed musician :D

My sand man, Sandy

Bye Sandy... you're all washed up! :)

And a little before this picture was taken, I was bitten by a crab, and I called the crab Charlie. OW CHARLIE! Charlie bit me! :D

On our way home :(

In all it was a most enjoyable day! Spent with a friend, good old fried food, & Charlie! :D

I do love the Beach! :)

God bless!

Camp 2009! :) Wahoo!!

My sisters and I had the opportunity of attending the Bible Presbyterian Church annual summer camp in Ocala at Camp Sonlight. It was June 29th-July 4th. Campers had the option to memorize Romans 13 and Ps 119:33-48 to get 50% off the price, or familiarize themselves with it in preparation for the teachings. Surrounded by three teaching sessions a day were games, pool time, study time, and meals. The teaching sessions are so rich with God's word.
There were four teams, Red, Yellow, Blue, & Green with at least 14 kids on each. There are team captains, who are young men, they are number ones, then number twos are young men to, and number threes are girls, then the next a girl, etc. Teams get points from quiz time and games. Daily study time is provided to reflect on the teachings and preparation quiz time.

We had so much fun and learned a lot! God blessed that week a lot! I hope you enjoy! :)

Lydia, Sheph, & me! ON our way!

Wahoo! CAMP!

Steph, me, Rebekah, & Kathleen waiting to be put on teams.
These are the teams we ended up on:
Steph: #6 Yellow, Me: #6 Red, Bekah: #4 Red, Kathleen: #14 Red.

The Steak (Red) team working on their team cheer! Go red! I had an awesome team!

Every Friday night the counselors make a great big campfire. Everyone sits around it and tells important things they learned during camp this year. Some shared from past years as well.
