The Maze Is Cut!!!!

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!

Long Post Update...

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 got Joanna & Rose, the sheep (the two to the left) sheared early this week.  They were VERY grateful.
And Betty & Wilda, the goats, are growing and are as ornery as ever.

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.

And this was an unexpected blessing!  (At least that's what Mom and Caleb call it, the rest of us aren't sure what to call it yet.  Maybe a lumber yard?!  ;)   There was a foreclosure or something on a factory near our church and Caleb got these for free!  We are going to use some of them on animal pens down at the Corn Maze and the rest well.... if any of you have some good ideas on what to use pallets for let us know!

Well, that's all for now!  Hope you enjoyed this little peek into the Peck's life! 
Pray you all have a wonderful Sunday!
God bless!

SMITE & Cows...

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
