Grandkids Come Visiting!

Summer is for grandchildren visiting the farm. We are blessed with beautiful grandchildren, but we don't see them very often since they live so far away. Anytime they are here is special.......
The first grandchild to visit was the youngest grandchild, Drew. He will be two in October and he was here with his mom and dad on Memorial Day weekend. Here he is with  his mom, Rhiannon, holding him on our front porch. He loved the "animals", especially the chickens. It was a hot day , but he had a great time. His parents live in Alexandria, Virginia.
Over the Fourth of July, we had our grandchildren who live in Bloomington, Indiana, a one and a half hour drive south of way. The youngest of the group, Christian, had never seen fireworks before so we drove to Sheridan, Indiana for a fireworks display.
The oldest grandchild is our grand daughter, Elizabeth. She is thirteen and attends middle school in Bloomington. She wants to be a writer and a teacher.
Jonathan is ten and loves the farm! He loves to help gather chicken eggs. He is a very polite boy and tells the chickens, "Excuse me chicken. I need your egg!"
This is Christian, the youngest of the crew. he is seven and wants a farm of his own when he grows up. He was a great weed puller and as he fed the weeds to the chickens, he exclaimed, "Now we will have hundreds of eggs !"

They had great fun with GrandPa's goat , Blitzen.......

A great time was had by all...............
