way behind

Those who are following the blog will see that I am way behind on posting.  I usually do the blog in the morning as the evening internet is very slow.  The last couple weeks we have had guests at the farm and I am the breakfast cook.  Theses guests were such incredible hard workers that we were hard at it all day every day .  The work that they got done, and the hearts and lives that they were able to touch is more then I could ever begin to share or explain in one blog post.  

Today I will post a bunch of pictures and over the next week or so I will go into more detail of some of the highlights .   
Nuric up early picking and preparing  produce to can 

this team brought with it sponsorship money from both New Bethesda and Espanola ,  a couple days ago I went past and there were so many kids on every piece that one kid was even riding in the garbage bin.

some of our local shepherds playing a game of Kukbadu for the team and a group of Bekah's students 

the first work day the guys built this great set of stairs down into the cellar 

we brout supplies to a womens rehab centre in IsyKol so had a chance to stop and see the lake , a couple even went for a quick dip. 

Dance party at Sammy's first birthday 

a load of coal delivered to the womens rehab center 

getting ready for seniors day , preparing food hampers including honey at each seat. expecting 100, made 125 portions and had 123 guests arrive

we gave a pair of ducks and their young to the womens rehab center .. one of the women was having a moment .. they were so blessed 

we made about 150 litres of pickled peppers.  Kurt was the bottle stuffer

Beksoltan up on the roof as they put up a new chimney

Tim the eagle hunter 

the tradition is that on a first birthday they have a race with all the community and the fastest child cuts the string that is tying the babies legs together , this signifies the starting to run the race of life and it is the fastest that does the honors so the child will be fast .. then the others race and the fastest gets a prize..  They decided that since they don't know many peopple as old as Kurt hahah that they would give him a little head start , not realizing how fast he could run ... for an old guy, and he won the goat.  good job Kurt
