 Gerben was here with 2 other guys
Working on adding a doorknob to the truck

Gerben's face didn't make it into the picture
we hope they found their way back home
they seemed to be directionally challenged

 Rien & Marc worked on the balage today

 The pasture balage is going fast

 She milks over 60 liters every day
she loves the robot

Rien & I go to the gym together these days

Regular reading scripture can be a lot like working out in the gym. 
Most days it takes almost more discipline then we have. 
But when we do it, we feel a lot better
