New life on the prairie

Today my husband took me and three of my friends out to see the bison herd. When we got out to the herd we saw this little bison laying under his mama trying to get out of the sun. He must have been born in June or maybe even early July, as he is not very old. I thought he was so cute and I wanted to share....

Family Fun in the city.....




We headed up to Kansas City to spend time with my brother and his wife for the holiday. We have had some much fun just being together. After a quick trip to one of the many fireworks tents, we headed home with the anticipation of shooting off our purchases. We have several boys in our group and I have learned that boys love to blow up things. So, after about an hour of loud pops and screams, loads of smoke and the smell of sulfur, we headed inside. Our bbq is in progress and hopefully tonight we will head to Parkville, Mo. and see their show. We plan on taking some professional pictures today of the kids. The weather man says that it is undoubtedly going to storm, but we are hopeful that he is wrong. Even though the radar shows a huge chance of the storms happening, we are praying that the rain will go north. I will have to post more later and let you know how we did. Maggie is enjoying her smoke bombs... who would have thought a smoke bomb would keep kids entertained as long as they do....Well, enough for now. I hope you all have a great holiday. Please be safe and praise the Lord for your freedom.




Until next time... Happy blogging.


America the Beautiful


Oh Beautiful, for spacious skies, for amber waves of grace....
Wow, I love July 4th. I love the fact that we are free to celebrate our Lord and Savior as well as our freedom living in a republic state. I can home school my children; I can worship openly; I can carry my Bible in public. I wish I could go up to EVERY soldier who has fought for my freedom and thank them personally. I think of my papa, who fought in WW II to keep me free. I think of all those soldiers at Normandy Beach who lost their lives for my freedom....but most of all, I am thankful for the freedom I have in Christ. I am thankful for Jesus willing to die on the cross for my sins. I am free for eternity because I am free in Christ. What more could anyone want?
