Staking Out Parking

(Sorry, these pics. were taken last month so this is a little out of order of how things happened but still thought I'd post them anyway.)
This is the field were, Lord willing, in a few months there will be a corn maze!
Here's Mom and Caleb measuring the parking area and placing flags so that they could tell were to plant the grass seed.





Oh! We also have a web site! It gives the info. about the in's and out's of the corn maze!
Hope you give it a visit and tell us what you think! If it's clear, not clear, or needs something that we didn't mention! We'd appreciate the comments!

Planting the Corn

Here are the pics. of the farmer planting the corn in the maze area!
Most of the plants are coming up and are about an inch tall! We are sooo excited!
(Hope this isn't boring you all!)

The tractors are so fun to watch work! We never really appreciated them till we moved up here.

Have a great day!

Maelee

Here are some pics. of Maelee that Ben took. She is really growing up! And she is soon to be a big sister! We love taking care of her. Her bright spirit brings joy to our day.
She is such a good helper! She loves to help me with the laundry, especially when we hang it outside, and has even learned to fold the wash clothes!

Ben took some really cute ones of her outside.



"Enough pictures!"

She is soooooo smart! She knows her alphabet, well most of it, can count to 11, and can recognize letters!

We're Back!

Wow! Thank you all for the great responses! and for reading our blog! It's nice to meet those of you who we don't know! It's an encouragement to me to try to update more often!
While we've been gone we had a fun and relaxing trip down to Silver Dollar City in Branson, MO. (But unfortunately I forgot to take any pics.!!!! :( But you can take a look on the blogs of the two families we went with! their blogs are on our blog list on the side bar, greenpasturesfarm, and cool-com-collected. They're good at taking LOTS of pics. ;)
If any of you have never been there I really encourage you to go! It's an historical theme park with fun rides for all ages and also old time crafts like blacksmithing, glass blowing, knife making, and candy making! (Just to name a few.) It's a great place to take your family and just enjoy having fun together! And what's even better is it has a great christian element! :D
Well, things are still REALLY crazy around here but we are going to try to keep you up to date on the Corn Maze happenings! And if any of you have any questions along the way feel free to ask! (And we'll do our best to answer! ;)
For those of you who are wondering what in the world a corn maze is anyway... it's a field of corn that has a design or pic. cut in it. The lines being paths for people to walk on, there being a start and finish!
Our maze, Lord willing, will be a pic. of Abraham Lincoln christening the town of Lincoln with water melon juice with a background of a hot air balloon!
Below are pics. of Caleb, and a farmer down the street from us, planting grass in the parking section!


And Ben just came in and told me the grass is starting to come up!

Please keep us in your prayers!
