So the fence...
...is officially in.
We fenced in about 1 1/4 acres. Here is a birds-eye view of what we did (thanks to Google Maps and Picmonkey):
It almost feels strange to describe it like this, but the whole fence experience felt very blessed.
From the moment Mr. Mike stepped out of his truck, when he first came to discuss details and give us an estimate...we just loved him. But we were careful to get another estimate from someone else that was recommended. I was very afraid that Mr. Mike's estimate was going to come in higher...but it came in at 25% less than the other bid. Woohoo!
We knew we loved Mr. Mike, and it turned out that his "employees" were two of his brothers (one of whom is a bi-vocational minister) and an 18-yr old nephew.

The whole process was very interesting.
E didn't know I was behind her getting this top picture of her. I think this is adorable: her in her cute outfit...and rubber boots:
Does this look like a girl who is ready - and excited - to hand milk an animal?
She **is** very excited! And she doesn't want to hear our talk of getting a milking machine...she wants to "do it like Laura and Mary!"
We got so tired "working" out there...
...we had to "supervise" from the trampoline for a while.
|I know, no net...bad mama, right? Our safety net had finally, officially had it. We need to order another one.|
We are all so excited that the fence is in...
More info - and diagrams - about our future plans coming up very soon.
