Spring Is In The Air....Already!

The weather we've been having here in Kansas for February has been awesome. We've had some rain and lots of sun, temperatures in the 60's! Therefore because of the weather, I have a ton of projects going on in my head. This year's garden being number one. I can't wait to start pumpkins again this year!!! I would like to start chickens this year but we'll see. My farm boy father laughs at all my self-sustaining ideas but he knows I usually always follow through with what I say I'm going to do!

Anyways I was a bit shocked the other day when my husband suggested since it's been nice out that we take the kids out to a farm nearby who homes around 80 + rescued Arabian horses and see about adopting. He personally knows this lady through work and she has invited us to come look, he's been there, but the rest of us haven't. Dave knows how much I've been wanting another but he's always wanted to wait so for him to just bring it up out of the blue kinda blew me away! I'm so excited! She has a broke 8 year old that sounds perfect for Alex and 4 H. Hopefully we will be able to go this Saturday. His suggestion this past weekend was on Sunday which is church and our small group that evening so we didn't go. I know Echo will be so excited to have a friend other than 3 loud barking dogs.
