Real Farmwives of America & Friends: Cycle of Life

Today's joint post for the Real Farmwives of America & Friends is The Cycle of Life.

As I mentioned several months ago, my family used to raise beef cattle and one very fertile summer I got very acquainted with the cycle of life... just sayin'

Besides the cattle, I do recall many a vacation waiting on the hay to: 

a. Be ready to cut
b. Be dry enough to bale
c. Be timed perfectly to get me on the beach as soon as possible!

I have distinct memories of riding it the truck with dad as he made such determinations while I sat there with my fingers crossed that the field would be vacation friendly... ya know, priorities baby ;)

These days, off the farm, the cycle of life is centering around a pretty big deal at our house.

P-Dab (or Goode Baby #2) is due in November and we just couldn't be happier. Miss Add is adamant that she is having a baby brother... I guess we'll see on that...

Make sure to check out the other Real Farmwives & Friends posts about the cycle of life on their farms. You are likely to hear about piglets, calves, lambs, corn, soybeans, etc. Check out our Facebook page (if necessary click "Go to Facebook") to meet all these fabulous ladies.

5 GOODe Thoughts:

Cris, Congrats again!!! so happy for you all!

And yes let's hop around and find all the great posts by the farmwives!!!


Aw, I love those pics!! Makes me think of the inner-city kids who never have experiences like that, never get to see the wonders of nature we took for granted growing up.

Hmmm...in the pictures I see you trying to coax a calf to eat, then me feeding TWO at once. I think I got ripped on that job! ;) hahaha Love you!

Congrats Cris!! Soooo happy for you!!

Can so relate to the hay! Thankfully I'm not involved to much in the hard work here on the farm, but I've learned all about the timing of baling hay.
