WE'RE FARMERS!!

Well, Lowell is a farmer, and I'm a farmer's wife... temporarily at least.

Initially our plan was to bum around Lethbridge for 6 weeks before my work and Lowell's practicum begin in September, but our financial situation dictated otherwise. Apparently traveling through 3 countries over the course of 4 months with no income does not exactly result in great wealth. WHO KNEW?!

I very nearly reverted to my "cool days" and got myself a paper route before Lowell came up with the brilliant plan to help his parents out on the farm. Lowell's parents need the help and we need the moolah, so the situation is very mutually beneficial. No parasites here!

So far we've been having a blast living on the farm with the fam.

Lowell's been busy in the fields...

In the garden...

And also fooling around a little...

(What??!! Did you think that the jumping shots would stop just because we're back in Canada?!)

I've been enjoying wifey duties such as cooking, cleaning, bringing snacks to the boys...

(My Mom stopped by for a visit on her way to Pioneer Lodge to be camp cook for the week, so me and my mamas delivered the goods to the field.)

... fence painting...

(Don't look toooo closely- only the first coat is done!)

... and paying attention to the wittle aminals.

These kitties are 4-5 weeks old, and there are more kittens to come SOON. The super-pregnant-grumpy-pants cat has been moping around scowling at everybody and everything for the past couple weeks. We expect her to pop any day now!

Aaaannnnd the verdict is... ME LIKEY THE FARM!!
