What's new, right?
We've had a lot going on. Daddy got a new tiller so we can plant a couple of garden's a year without having to rent on in town each time. He spent last Friday working out there - tilling, hauling rocks to the creek and placing the ties on the edges. Here he is being He-Man - end over end with t
he tie to get it over to the garden. We are hoping this helps the soil to not run off! He got the garden all tilled and ready. He and the boys hauled a couple of loads of rocks to the creek. It's amazing how much rock there is - just below the surface dirt! No wonder carrots won't grow here! ;)
Daddy and the boys headed into town to pick up some manure at Lowe's to till into the dirt. They got it for $1.29 a bag (FYI - Lowe's will price match - just give them the price and they will call the other store to verify - you don't even need the ad!) It saved $5+ on the bill! Cool!!!
On the way home from Lowe's
the boys stopped at a garage sale - anyone who knows us knows we can't pass up a garage sale! ;) And true to the Johnson tradition - they found some goodies! ;) Bug found a stained glass candle holder - he loves stained glass stuff - so although it's a poinsettia - we will be displaying it all year long. ;)Daddy found a cool book about battles for 50 cents. What a find! It's from the 60's and in great shape! It has about a dozen stories of great battles - so of course my kids are crazy over it!

Red's find was probably the craziest of all. He bought a Huge horn. Yes, a real Longhorn. He loves it! It's almost as tall as he is. Daddy said he drove home clutching it like he had captured the world! My Red - he is a nut! I have no idea what we are going to do with this thing, but I suppose I will find something. I am sure it's probably not going to be all that difficult...it being just ONE horn and all. LOL
On to other news...the boys and I have been going on "nature walks" a lot...mostly everyday. I am committed to exercising more and the boys just love to get out and see what we can find. So it's a great thing for all of us. We've been working on Bug's nature book for his RA's discoverer 1 patch and our nature walks have proven to be an invaluable tool. I sent all the pics to snapfish yesterday to be printed (got a great deal on 100 free pics - woo hoo!) so as soon as we get them in we will begin putting the book together to finish up his patch. Here you can see Ladybug playing in the creek. She loves to go walking with us as well. She's our protector and "dog exciter" - lol!
I suppose that's all for now...until next time...love each other and serve A Mighty God!
