Life in the country

We are loving the country. Last night we enjoyed a quick hail storm that dropped marble-sized hail stones. I enjoyed the lightning and the thunder and the hail was incredible. The kids were worried about the thunder. We actually parked our cars in the backyard under some big trees so the damage would be minimal. This morning I found dents in my "garden" where the hail had hit. Pretty amazing stuff.

Also, our adventures have included a copperhead snake on the patio a week ago. He was quite a sight to behold and I was grateful that Chris shot him twice so he wouldn't be a threat to us. Every member of the family now owns cowboy boots or work boots. living at its best.

Still trying to find a lender who won't claim that the house in is a flood zone (which it obviously isn't) and hopefully closing on the house at the end of this month. Chris is loving the tractor and I actually had a hard time getting him to come into dinner. ;)

It is so beautiful living here and quite peaceful. We have so much space that we decided it was time to get a dog. We are trying to adopt a springer spaniel and we get to go meet "Sam" on Wednesday. Wish us luck.
