About a month ago, Michael decided it was time to butcher the sheep wether we'd kept for that purpose. Doesn't he look slightly intimidating in this photo? ;D
Andrew and Marie bought a jet-ski at the last Orr auction near Jamestown so we spent a couple afternoons out on the lake with them, taking turns driving the jet-ski and riding in our boat. Here are Andrew and Marie. It was pretty funny when they tipped the thing over and got all wet. We were there to rescue them, but they probably didn't even need our help since they got it tipped back up while in the water.
Michael went really fast...
...and I didn't. :)
We took the boat over to a little island that's in West (McKenna) lake near Napoleon.
Marie took several of these photos using my phone, since I was riding the Jet-ski at this time.

My mom went out on the boat with us the 2nd time we went. She had a good ol' time!
Have I mentioned yet that Beretta had another littler of puppies?! They were born on July 14th.
There are 4 males (1 lemon colored) and 1 female. We now have homes for 3 of the males and we're keeping the female for ourselves, so just 1 puppy is for sale yet. They're 5 weeks old already and ever so cute!!
Michael took the following 3 pictures right before a storm one evening when the lighting was really neat.
It's been a very dry Summer (a severe drought really) but we've had over 2" of rain recently and the grass is greening up nicely now. PTL! We've had to water the garden and flowers a LOT in the last few months.
Jacob bought one of these at the Pifer consignment sale....
The garden has been producing pretty well and I was amazed at this big potato I dug up...
It took a while, but we finally decided on a name for our female puppy: Medora.
She's a real sweetheart!
