Saturday was a double soccer game (both of them at 10am). Kristen’s team scored 5 goals in the first quarter. Needless to say this wasn’t the "serious" team from Delaware. Kurt scored a goal & was so excited that he turned a little boy cartwheel at mid-field. Coach said it was his first goal, but by Mom’s count, it’s his second. He’s still having lots of fun playing soccer. His poor coach is hard pressed to keep the boys focused. I hope he doesn’t quit coaching.
After soccer we headed south for the Montgomery County Farm Tour. We visited 3 farms & learned about energy conservation, seed propogation, petted 12 day old piglets, bought fresh picked apples – oh, how this Michigan orchard country girl loves the site of crates of apples!!!!! We petted goats, and a mini pony, and a 32 year old horse. We saw more goats, and sheep, a Zebu & a long haird cow of a breed I can’t remember. Oh, and we watched a girl spinning wool. We talked to a couple who raise mini Herefords (beef cows), and looked at small scale hay equipment with big, BIG price tags. And we saw some beautiful fall countryside. We had a great family outing & were very tired when we got home at 6pm.
We have a very busy school week, but a scheduled Thursday off, with 3 things scheduled for the day – 1 medical, 1 school, and 1 soccer (Kristen has a make-up game from last Thursday that got rained out). If you don’t here from me, it’s because we have 2 heavily scheduled weeks & soccer tournament next Saturday.
And that’s what’s happening on the homestead.
