Somehow Sundays just put a relaxing slant on everything. I’m not sure what it really is, perhaps, it is the family times or the fact that it’s the Lord’s Day that add extraordinary blessings.
Yes, more toasty summer days, more water fun, and many happy hours with family pets. As I write, the latest pets are three kittens from a stray mama cat. Much to the delight of our five little children, a mama cat randomly came to our farm and hid where we could not see her and then had three baby kittens.
These summer days really are pressing in. I forgot how muggy it could get in southern Illinois! Thankfully the children don’t seem to mind the heat. It makes for lots of water fun, so why not love hot days? Anything to get them wet and have some outdoor action makes them happy.
This week, I’d like to introduce you to our two new pets at the Yoder household.
Hey, you’ve got to join us for a leisurely afternoon. Daniel suggested that we all go for a ride with our standardbred mare, Sapphire, and open cart. We were all in. After the children’s nap time, we piled onto the cart with two children sitting on a little bench by our feet. “Where are we going?” The children wanted to know.
