The New Farm

At the beginning of the month, Chris and I moved to a nearby farm. It has been quite an adjustment... but a very exciting one at that. We are glad to be back to our roots! On Saturday afternoon, Ruger and I decided to take a stroll around the property and snap a few pictures to share.
This is part of our front yard. We have many fully grown trees and a bunch of new ones that were recently planted. Ruger likes to "play" with these baby ones and is quickly learning the meaning of the words "no" and "naughty puppy."

Here is the house. Quite small compared to what we are used to, but we are making good use of the space. We are learning to downsize and come up with unique ways to use space that we normally wouldn't have. The house just got new shingles and is looking forward to updated windows. The garage is still an eyesore but will be getting an upgrade by the summer's end!
We still have some fixing up to do around the farm, mainly what Chris calls "beautification." Next weekend we are going to put the rest of the lattice on the porch and the deck, put out my bird stuff and plant some flowers. I'm totally excited!

Here is one of our favorite features, the windmill! No longer functioning, but I still think is it neat and is just another one of the things that adds a lot of character to the farm!

And of course... heres Ruger... excited about running around the farm together, extremely hyper! And then showing off her "creepy" smile!

That's so awesome, Kelli! Oh man, I'd love to come and see it--I think the only night that would work though is Aug 11 (the night we get in) and it wouldn't be able to be until nighttime, so we wouldn't get to see everything in daylight. Blast!
