And when our family comes to visit from out-of-state, the farm is a must-see for children and adults alike. Recently Bruce’s daughter Emily with hubby Chad and our sweet grandchildren Deacon (3) and Abbie (1 1/2) visited.

|It’s fun looking at the cows ...|

|Deacon walks like Grandpa|
|Monkey see, monkey do|
|Abbie and her dad check out the horses|
|Deacon likes the kids (baby goats)|

Meet Norman, our new Jersey calf (a bull) born in June this year. Isn’t he cute??

One of the ladies in CQI had to drop out of the English Garden II Round Robin (hope your hand feels better soon, Ritva!). Since I was the “angel” for the RR, I will get to step in and finish a block for Cathy Labath. These lovely blocks just arrived in my mailbox yesterday, and I am looking forward to stitching on one. They are up on my design board now, and I am just waiting for them to talk to me! :-)
