Fun in the Rain

To those of you who voluntarily did a rain dance for us

I say "thank you."
Your efforts paid off.

We had rain early Saturday morning and again 
yesterday afternoon and evening.
What a relief....we've had such a drought.

The only one who was not happy with the rain was Hickory....
She hid under the dining room table and barked with each thunder clap.
We have come to realize that she is frightened by thunderstorms.

All in all, I believe we had at least 2 inches.
The spring house is no longer dry.

The pond is still low, but holding its own...
Maybe even up a few inches, now.

After the rain, Oakley and I headed out for afternoon chores.
We stopped at the barn to clean up the dry lots.

Bobby was happy to see us and gave Oakley a welcome rub...

One of Oakley's favorite games is to play chase with the Littles.
They seem to enjoy it, too and always participate.

After playtime, everyone decided to help me....

Do I really need this kind of help??

Mayhem, as usual.
But we do have fun here on the farm.
We live a much slower pace than most...
it takes a long time to get chores done.

After all, you just can't rush through and miss these opportunities for play!
