Lenten Tea


I had the kniepertjes, love those!


A nice mix of people



Our speaker Ruth Coghill
she recited Psalm 84
...better is one day in your house then 1000 elsewhere ...
and she talked about Jochebed Moses' mother
fitting, we just finished studying Exodus in Coffee-Break


It was a very nice afternoon

Barn Tour Perth County

 
6 barns, 2 robot barns and 4 tie-stall

 
big airy barns

 
These people had a cat that could go up but couldn't come down by itself
so they made a cat-walk

 
all the calves liked to lay under the boards, maybe less drafty?

 
We saw Jeff and his dad in 5 of the 6 barns

 
There were even different breeds (another farmer had 1 Ayrshire)

 
a Juno was going around that we think could have gone to our place

some cows like to spread the feed around
right after the feed pusher went

Cnossome Anouk
we know an Anouk Cnossen

a muddy day for sure

flush barn

We went with John, it was a good day

 
The Truck needed a wash
