What a great weekend!

Jessie's soccer game was canceled due to lightning and thunder Saturday morning. So we loaded up and went down to Millersburg (about an hour south of us) to pick up these 3 heifers that we brought over Labor Day:

It rained off and on most of Saturday morning/early afternoon - so I cleaned the house and did some sewing.

Then Sunday, Todd and I put halters on all 3 heifers, and wouldn't you know - Tyler jumps right in there to start working with them! The boy has no fear.

The black heifer (Ali) is the calmest of the bunch, although they are all very quiet. Tyler named one of the red ones "Mittens" and Jessie named the black one "Ali". They may never be shown, but we like all of our cows to at least be handleable - makes it easy if you ever have to work with them.

I hope everyone is doing well and recoving from Hurricane Ike. We had horrific winds all day yesterday - power off and on - lots of downed trees and limbs, and about 1/2 the siding was blown off the one end of our house.

Sorry to hear about the damage to your house! We had bad winds here but no damage that I know of.

Nice cows! I love going to Millersburg!!! It has been several years but my ex-BIL lived close by. I would always visit Millersburg too.

Congrats on the new cows! I'm sorry to hear about the damage around your place. So far, we've gotten ALOT of rain and are under a flood warning. But still, we're all very lucky in comparison to our southern friends.

Awe man! I can't believe Ike made it up to your neck of the woods. Crazy! I'm sorry their was damage to your house too. We are still picking up tree junk from all over the property.

Glad you are all okay! Have a great week!
