A REAL "Scare-Crow!"

So this is the first time we've seen this - above a nearby apple orchard, they've hung sevearl dead black crows... it's rather morbid, but I can only guess it's to keep intruders away from the fruit!

Kassie's had 4 fun lessons now - this week, she got to ride outside...

We've decided we really like living this 'simple' life - the smaller living space, less 'stuff.' I was talking with Barbara about how there are so many storage unit business popping up around the U.S... pretty much because people love to gather 'stuff', and when they can't fit it all in their big houses, they have to rent storage places to put it all. She brought up the scripture about where we lay up our treasures... and she said, "ya know, we're just passing through here! Do we really need all this stuff??" So true - it's funny how easy it is to accumulate things, yet it will all go away one day. Granted, lots of that 'stuff' can be quite entertaining... it's just good to remember our priorities.
