Country Kids

This was a short week for us. The school week ended on Wednesday and it's been non-stop ever since. Yesterday my brother came over in the morning to visit as the girls weren't at school. After I made eggs for the three of them, we all went outside to enjoy the beautiful spring morning. The wind was light, the sun was shining and Oliver even allowed me to photograph him, from a distance of course with the big lens.

Binny was playing "cook" in the grain bin (playhouse) and delivered her treats to us.

Uncle T was teaching Mae to play catch. She's about as coordinated and graceful as I am (which isn't very), but I have to say she was getting the hang of it.

Doopie wanted to play too.
Uncle T tried out the new ATV but didn't even get out of first gear while tooling around the garden then parked it back in the shed. I kind of get why. My brother and I are definitely the light weights of the family and aren't really into being tossed around on a bright green 4 wheeled monster. Anyhow, it's worth the experience. I know that if my husband didn't insist that I try to learn to be a country girl, I wouldn't. But then I wouldn't know how to help disassemble lift arm seals on the skid steer, a very useful skill around here.

It's beautiful country. I'm a suburbia girl, but there are times I fantasize about being a country girl.
