I am falling woefully behind on blog posts. Life is happening faster than I can write about it. Not that anything earth shattering has happend, but I want to document our days and I guess I'm too busy living life to spend much time on the computer.

And this is one of our favorite ways to take a break from ranch work:
And even though we were disheartened by the drought, we still found beauty in time together and in our surroundings:
And the rain prayers continue:
