The little yellow finches are here by the dozens.

It seems there are many of these little birds to feed. I tried to get a picture of several at one time but they flit around so quickly that it is hard to get a good picture.

Justin after foot surgery with G'pa's new toy

Justin had corrective surgery on his right foot therefore he needed a way to get around while healing. This was the answer it seems.

Justin saving on gas by riding his bike

With only one day of school left, Justin seemed pleased to be out on his bike.

The guys loading corn

The corn being loaded to take to Richardson ND to the ethanol plant there.
Jerry, Ty and Justin doing the honors. Actually Ty did all the shoveling.

McKayla's graduation from kindergarten

A big night for McKayla. There were 20 kindergarten kids. A very cute program. The kids did the Virginia Reel plus other things so was most enjoyable.

Our May weather and Justin mowing

We had snow on the ground this morning and then it continued to snow for a couple of hours. Justin then decided to mow our lawn, what there is of it. He used an old fashioned lawn mower with a lot of muscle behind it. What a good guy.

The tree planters

I was actually too late to take a picture of them doing the planting. This is the outfit that does the work. There are 2 people on the back end that put the trees into the ground. The one on the front usually walks along and tamps in any trees that aren't in right or leaning. She usually doesn't ride there.

Some of the birds wondering where the warm weather is.

The little barn swallows above the windows must of been to cold to fly as they just sat there for their picture. The geese are here all summer to raise their babies.

Some of the sights early this morning.

Some new baby calves just waiting for the day to begin.

This is an irrigation NO NO!!

Evidently someone should of been watching the weather forecast. This is what happens when it gets down to 19 degrees and an irrigation unit is left running all night. Thankfully it didn't come down as has happened before to a neighbor, not us.
