Mud Village Of Tiny People Discovered

One of the huts along a dry stream bed.

An ancient daub and wattle bridge over a sheer gorge.  Careful, it looks fragile!

One of the structures has a flag or some such ornament on it.

There is an ancient lake that seems close to drying up.

Here is one lake connected to another with a row of primitive shelters.

Along the sheer crevasse there are more mud structures, seemingly organized!  I think there must be some rhyme or reason here.

Finally, is that a figure I see?  Is that a mud man . . . or a tiny Bigfoot . . . ?

Careful!  He looks fierce!  Wait . . . what’s that I hear him say in his tiny little squeaky voice?. . . ”

Get off my property, ya big galloots!”

Ryan on the Dingo (or) Playing in Poo

I rented the Toro Dingo yesterday to make post holes with the auger and to widen the little road going into our backyard with a little front loader. As I was working I realized, “Hey, this would be a fun thing for Ryan to learn how to do.” So I called him out.

While on the dingo, Ryan took out an old stump for me and consolidated the manure pile. Who said work can’t be fun? I love tools!

Getting the Teenagers Involved in the Barn Building

My daughter Juliana’s friends came to help build the barn!  These are friends from her homeschool group.  They donated their time as a service project.  I am so grateful for their help.  They each came for several days and helped for many hours!  What a great learning project for them and a great help to me!!  Thanks Ephraim, Isaiah, and Stephen!
