Here are some more NH pics....
We got to stay in a cabin off of a lake! It was AWESOME! There was a kayak there, a rowboat, and a paddle boat for us kids to enjoy. The very first morning as soon as we were up we all ran out and explored the lake. This was our view from our dining room and kitchen window!
After breakfast Brittany, Jenny, and I went for a hike around the lake to see what we could find!
There are mushrooms everywhere in the forests up there! All shapes, sizes, and colors!
This was a Stingray Corvette that was for sale in a grocery store parking lot and if you know me well you know I had to get a pic.! ;)
Next we went to a u-pick apple orchard! Their apples where delicious!
While there we saw this sweet car and license plate and I had to get a pic. next to it! ;D
It was an awesome adventure with awesome friends.
There's still more pics.! So keep checking back!

Hello all! I (Jordan) was invited to go on a 2 week trip to NH with the Com. family and I had a blast! It is BEAUTIFUL country up there! I was able to see mountains for the first time ever and even had the experience of climbing one!!!! Not only where there gorgeous mountain views but there are breath taking water falls everywhere! Which was so cool for me because I LOVE water! Here are some pics. to start out with but I hope to post more with more details soon. Hope you enjoy! :)

Hey there! Could you all please be praying for my Grandpa this week? He is needing to have his gallbladder removed. So if you could just pray for a safe and uncomplicated surgery and healing we would really appreciate it. :)
Mom and James are there with him so if you could pray for Ben, Caleb, & I back home since we'll probably be in charge of the Maze by ourselves that would help too. ;)

Happy Birthday Ben!
Ben is growing to be such a Godly young man.
He keeps his focus on the Lord trying to please Him in all he does.
He is extremely responsible, obedient, and hard working.
He does a wonderful job of honoring Mom and encouraging others.
He has recently taken over a Nursing Home ministry at our church and is doing a wonderful job with that.
A note of interest is that his Birthday is the same date the Atomic Bomb was dropped!
Though he is very charactered he is still one of the biggest 'character's' in our house. Always trying to keep us all laughing.
(Though he usually doesn't show this silly side to many others outside the family. ;)
Happy Birthday Ben. We hope you have a wonderful year!

Praise the Lord the Corn Maze is cut!!!! :D
It took two days and a couple break downs but it is finally done!
The way we cut the maze, for those of you who are interested is....
Caleb downloads the picture of the maze we have drawn on graph paper to our Farm Works GPS.
Then he, connected to the battery in our little John Deer lawn mower, slowly walks ahead and shows where the lines, curves, etc... need to go.
Mrs. Mc., who drove the little lawn mower this year, follows close behind and makes a path for me, who is on the big John Deer tractor with a tiller behind, tills the paths.
Below is a pic. of us doing that from the Concession Cabin roof.
We had fun.... most of the time. It did get a little stressful at times.
Here is a pic. of part of the maze. Any guesses of what it is?
Now I'm sure you all are wanting to know what the picture is this year aren't you?!
Well.... you all will just have to be patient til we get the aerial photo! ;)
(Actually, we are anxious to know what we made too!) :D
Thank you all for you're prayers!

Hello all! Here is a Loooong post update of our life here. We've been so bad this winter about posting I don't know if anyone really looks very often now! :P
But for those of you that do here is an update... :)
The baby chicks are getting big...
and here's the big chickens
We are REALLY enjoying having cows!!! It is sooooo much fun milking...
and the milk is GREAT!
The Corn Maze Work season has officially started so we have been VERY busy around here.
Praise the Lord for strawberries! We are getting an abundance this year...
and the raspberries are coming too.
I FINALLY got the garden in, very late... I'm so embarrassed!
We are trying raised beds. We didn't get the raised part done but maybe next year.
Well, that's all for now! Hope you enjoyed this little peek into the Peck's life!
Pray you all have a wonderful Sunday!

Hello all! Well, we made it back from S.M.I.T.E camp safe and sound!
It was a fun and profitable week! The Lord really worked!
There were 447 kids that received Christ as there Saviour this week and almost 2,000 that heard the salvation message! Praise the Lord!
Caleb graduated from S.M.I.T.E this year which was exciting. And James went for the first time and loved it! Jordan taught a short class which she enjoyed and Ben passed the hardest level with flying colors!
We all LOVED all the suggestions for the cows! They were so fun! Thank you!
We ended up naming the mama cow Adalaide , which means 'Noble, kind'.
And the baby; Guess. That way when a certain 'event' happens and someone asks, "What's for dinner?" we can say, "Guess!" ;D

Wow! The Lord is just REALLY blessing us in new add ons to our farm!
This weekend we purchased a milk cow and calf! They should arrive on Thurs.
We are trying to figure out what to name them so we decided to ask you!
What do you think we should name them? (The calf is a little boy and will someday be, dinner. ;)
The Mom is a Holstein and the baby is part Angus.

And I hear another one peeping from an egg right now so we will soon have a fourth to show you!

Hello all! We are sorry we haven't been posting much! We need a new camera because ours is going out! Hopefully when we do we will do a better job of posting!
But as I speak I faintly hear a little cheap from the incubator next to me announcing that a new little life is starting to break forth!!! :D
We have been incubating about 12 chicken eggs in hopes of enlarging our herd and the first arrival is on it's way! A little early I might add! So hopefully we will have some pics. of some cute little chicks in a day or two! So stay tuned! ;)
(James is hoping for some more Turkens!) ;D

Here are our new arrivals!!!
Two shelties! :)
These are two females about 2-3 years old that Caleb, Mom, and James got them for breeding puppies! They are really sweet! We have had this type of dog since before I was born. They are GREAT house dogs! They love to please and are wonderful with kids and other animals.
The black one, or Tri, colored one is Caleb's and her name is Maggie. She's very quiet, laid back sort of personality.

Turn up your volume!
When I consider thy heavens, the work of thy fingers, the moon and the stars, which thou hast ordained;
What is man, that thou art mindful of him? and the son of man, that thou visitest him?

Well, today is James' 12th Birthday...
and for his Birthday he found out he needed glasses, he started growing facial hair...
He found out he would only grow to be 3 ft. tall...
AND he got a brand new car, (with extended petals for his short legs) that he can't drive for another 4 years!
Just kidding! :D
On a serious note James is a VERY charactered young man. He is hard working, cares for others, is diligent, obedient, content, & respectful.
And he also has a good dose of fun! ;)
Happy Birthday James! We love you and are so blessed that the Lord chose you to be in our family!
