Zach's grandma said it best when she told us, "You have a beautiful family. Kinda loud, but a beautiful family." How right she was! And we sure love our loud, crazy, fun, active, silly, loving, chaotic, beautiful family.

My Little Farmer
Staley loves animals. All animals. Household pets. Birds and squirrels and bunnies in the yard. Zoo animals. And farm animals. Oh, how she loves her farm animals. So Staley was in her element on Friday when we joined with a friend's play group to attend Little Farmer's Camp. Little Farmer's Camp occurred on a working dairy farm where the kids got to help with various farm chores. Staley (and Elliott, who also joined us) got to help mix feed for animals, gather eggs from the chicken coop, bottle feed baby cows, and feed cows, sheep, horses, and chickens. Up close encounters with all the animals from the barnyard kittens to the cows were high excitement for Staley. She was also super-pumped about seeing both a red and a blue tractor. Let's add this as another possible future Staley career. My little farmer!
