4-H Dairy Club

We had a meeting at our place

At first we were still in the sun but it did get cool

We even toured the old barn

The group got split in 2

They even had to judge some calves and give reasons
that is difficult when they are running around

Make Room for God conference

6 of us went to Oakville for a Coffee-break conference.

There were about 750 women

we got up to do some exercises

met some old friends

great lunch and snacks

one of our inspirational speakers


Marian did a great job

saw some of our Israel friends

and we learned some things

about hospitality: going to other people's places to eat their food
and drink their coffee is also hospitality 

Making room for God - keeping Sabbath by:
play, rest, eating well, have a nap, make love, story telling
turning off technology, gather for worship, swim, hike or paddle

and one of our speakers has her own blog:

a very good day!
