Just look in the background of this photo. You should be able to see the green water. What would you have said?
I do want him to have fun on the farm, but I'm not going for the swimming in the pond now....Maybe if it cleared up some......I'm thinking we might get a sample tested to see why it looks so nasty.
Dillon did cheer up when it came time to check on the cows. He got on his dirt bike and did a little riding. He forgot completely about no swimming.
He said no for now, but she was content with knowing someday in the future she can show off to her brother how well she can ride!

I got 4 sticks of deodorant, tube of toothpaste, and 2 bottles of dishwashing liquid for $2.16. With their sale prices and with me using coupons I have saved and some I printed off of the internet, caused me to save A LOT! I believe it's worth stocking up on the deodorant when you can get it for $0.50 a stick. I think I ended up having $0.49 in the tube of toothpaste....I am super excited about learning more on saving by using coupons. Take a look below at my stock I'm starting to work on in my utility room.....

Now isn't this just a fashion statement?
She also had to get a little lovin on our goats' guardian dog, Kimba. I think he is such a beautiful dog. Not to mention, I'm so glad to have him around to protect our goats from predators. It's amazing how gentle his is with our family, but how he can be such a "guard dog" when something strange gets out in the pasture. My nephew Noah came over when Paw Paw brought Dillon home. He and Mallory enjoyed a ride on Sally. It has been awhile since we've been able to ride the horses because of the horseflies and the heat. It was a pleasant way to end our afternoon after a hard day's work!
I also wanted to update on the horse Shane bought for me. If you remember he was so starved down when we got him (go here for that story). It has taken all summer for him to get some weight put back on him. I just might be able to ride him soon. I wasn't able to get a picture of the others but they are looking good too. It is such a shame they were in such bad shape, but I am glad they are doing better. Here is an updated picture of Big Red.

(Sorry so late to post this.....We had a power outage last night....That kind of stuff is always happening around here. We also had no water during the day yesterday for a few hours. ahhhh the joys of living in the country! I wouldn't trade it though.)
