Feeling very thankful and overwhelmed by the goodness and protection of God. Last night Alexander and Andy literally saved Michael's life.
I was sitting on the lawn with mom enjoying a glass of wine and a little relaxation and I sent the kids in the barn to gather eggs. Alexander and Michael went up into the loft (where they are not supposed to go) and the girls did not notice them. Not sure how it happened but Michael fell out of the window at the top of the barn (20 feet up) and managed to catch himself and was hanging dangling by his hands over the cement pad.
Alexander immediately ran for help screaming "Emergency, Emergency" and went straight to his Dad. Andy came out and when he got close to the barn he could hear Michael screaming for help. Andy was on the cement pad and Michael was clinging for his life 20 feet up in the air hanging by his hands out the window above. Andy was telling him to hold on and yelled at Hannah for the ladder. I could hear shrieks from the barn and ran out to see what was going on. While I was looking in the barn Michael told Andy he couldn't hang on, he was slipping, and then he fell.
By the grace of God Andy caught him. His hands are cut, his arms were sore but he was otherwise unharmed. A true miracle. Had Andy been another foot away when he fell he would not have caught Michael. Michael's angel was working overtime last night... we are so thankful for his protection and for God's watchful eye.

She not only has a sweet and bubbly personality but she is not afraid of hard work! :-) She has already helped the kids get our garden planted! She is a welcome addition here and we look forward to getting to know her better. Be sure to say hello if you see her here at the farm or with us at market!!
Andy is starting to use his Facebook account to share little stories.... I thought I might share them here. If this keeps up we might have to change this blog to include us both. :-) Here is a little bit from Andy:
