I titled this post driving, because we drove for 3 days straight, from California to Missouri, our new home. Yep…we moved if you haven’t heard. Leaving everything we know as Californians to become mid-westerners! Call us crazy, but this is the place to be if we want to continue in agriculture and have any type of longevity in this business. The water issues in California, the high feed prices and the low milk prices in CA pretty much determined what we needed to do as a business and for our future.
The lack of posting over here on the blog has not been my plan, my life has been so not normal with Madison getting severely sick ending up in the hospital for almost 3 weeks, packing up a house and selling our first home, to moving across the country. These 3 things in my opinion are so stressful and to go through them all at the same time is a lot to deal with mentally, physically, and emotionally. I had to just take care of what was in front of me at the time and keep moving ahead until we made it here.
On top of driving for the last few days to get here, we have made two trips over the last two days to the “big-city” to go grocery shopping, once for Sam’s and then once to Walmart. It gets so hot and humid here, and you have a long drive back home that you either have to bring an ice chest with cold packs to keep you food cold or make separate trips! I’m learning…I’m learning, lol!
Madison and I are going to become extra close and super best friends since we are all each other has, until she starts school in the end of summer.
Bryce and Jarret are going to become super close best buds too since we are all each other has out here. Except we have Ty and Mahalia also-haha…but, no Grandparents, cousins, aunts or little Miss Holly B to squeeze and spoil.
Right now the guys have been busy making hay while the sun shines and then turning it into baleage. Baleage is a form of silage, where hay ferments in the form of a round bale and wrapped in white plastic.
When I get a chance I will have to take a video of them wrapping a bale.
These are what the baleage bales look like all stacked up in the yard behind the commodity barn. You have to keep them separate from the cows in the pasture or they will bust through to that sweet feed and start having lunch!
I am sorry for the lack of posting…I have felt like I was missing my left arm without giving my blog the t.l.c. it needs, BUT I am working to get back at it these week and to share, share, share as much as possible!
Have a Great Sunday,
