So today I went to the Delk's house and "helped" (ok so it was more like enjoyed the heck out of being on a hobby farm again) get 100 little meat chicks settled in. We got in the big ol farm truck and rolled into cannon falls to pick up the little buggers and they road cheeping loudly the whole way back. Josh slept in the middle seat and Hannah talked about anything on her mind, Kris and I listened to some christian country songs and then that song "Watching You" by Rodney Atkins which is an amazing song...
Anyways. All this being said I really miss being in the country! I miss the smell, I miss the ability to walk around barefoot and worry about getting more than mud on your feet, I miss the sound and smell of a truck that is used for me than getting a person from point A to point B.
I need to remind myself that this is where the Lord has me! So instead of despair I just had a ball! It was way fun. It is nice because now a farm is a vacation not an everyday work. Like I was telling Kris today about gardening, its fun when you don't HAVE to do it. As a child weeding as a necessity was comparable to slave labor.
Here are some pictures from the day, twas fun :)
And here is that Rodney Atkins song:
