A weekend at the farm

We had a lovely time at the farm this weekend, with Don's family. The weather was perfect for:
a spontaneous game of football;

a walk in the bush;

and some wildlife watching.

Dinner conversation

What is your conversation like around the dinner table? If you had been at our table last night you would have been privileged to be part of a conversation following the theme: Do chickens wear underpants? What are your thoughts on the matter?

What was very uplifting, was our weekend with a team from The Father's House. I'd like to rave about it, but gosh - I'm not even sure where to start! Am feeling very tempted to sell the house and move down to Lawson....

We also had a nice time at Gunnedah's Koala Park last week with some other families from our homeschool group.
