See, I really am a farm girl...

So Steve obviously knows that I grew up on a farm, but he doesn't think I really "grew" up on a farm if that makes any sense. He thinks it's really weird that I have never actually seen a calf being born (but really who wants to see that anyways), anytime I tell him I used to drive truck, or the swather, or even that I drove combine for one whole summer I can tell he really doesn't believe me. And I really did have to strain the milk almost every morning. That's definetly a true sign of a farm girl. Anyways the point that I'm trying to make is that he know's that I grew up on the farm but doesn't think I'm a farm girl. Well he sure got the surprise of his life when we were out there last and he found all of us girls with the kids in the barn. I even have pictures to prove it....

here's the whole crew of us

Summer was obsessed with the calves..

and the horse.

I know you are all jealous of mine and Brette's coats. Or maybe your just wondering what we are doing with the canes...even I'm not sure on that one. The coats actually used to be mine and Shannon's in junior high, and they were cool. And still kind of are.

I loved this one of my Dad!

Brette taking Shannon for a real fun ride in the calf wagon. Shan was just a little nervous.

Me and Steve. Yes he is there, he is just a little hard to see with his camo clothes on.

I have never been so jealous in my life. And I can't express to you how much I LOVE those coats! Man, you've got me all excited for the farm this year!!

And I must be a farm girl too, since I can remember milking the cow with Weston. HA.
