Aquatic Organisms!

 Howdy folks!  Here's just a litttle update on my aquatic organisms project and the farm.  We got out to the pond yesterday (thank you M family!) and came home with several organisms.  I'll be posting more info on each one once I get them all identified.  Here are a few pictures of the day!


 Trying to find organisms in the mud. :)

 This one was easily identified....a leech!
 A few of the specimens. 


 A net that I used to get several organisms.




 There was a pear tree near the pond, and they were all excited to pick pears.  This is Erik helping Ben get some higher ones.
 Dad helped Elizabeth

Our newest addition to the farm is Adah, a little Jersey heifer calf.  Pretty cute, huh?

 Elizabeth and Johnny feeding little Adah.

She's so cute isn't she?

That's about everything that's going on here.  We're off to a wedding today and I get to drive our 15 passenger van with a trailer on the highway for over an hour and a half.  Yikes!  :)

Have a good day!
