Summer in Vermont

I think Mr. S has the potential makings of a farm hand. Perhaps next summer he can come back and work the farm for the whole summer! He’s helped catch a pig, collect eggs from the chickens and helped move the herds of cows. Now he just needs to learn how to drive the tractor.

Kelvey got a new puppy the day they returned from Peru, so he’s been with them for nearly a week now. I really do not miss puppyhood. He’s an English Shepard and very cute, but doesn’t do too well in this heat, preferring to hang out on the air grate. Their other dogs are finally warming up to him now, which means active play spurts and barking sessions usually taking place under your chair or on top of your legs. He hasn’t seemed to figure out that he needs to do his business OUTside. Ugh. He also has taken a fancy to every toy, shoe or mitten he can sink his teeth into.

Birthday Weekend

Happy Birthday Kelvey!

She really rocked it with a whole weekend celebration. We were also celebrating her passing the board exam, so she won’t have to study for tests again for another 10 years. Yay!

We’ve been staying on their farm. They raise chickens and pigs and Belted Galloway cows, all for food. We’ve been eating really well :)

The rain, however, didn’t really let up. Everyday we have had some serious thunderstorms. I just hope that when its time to leave it will dry up a smidge so we don’t get stuck in the mud.

Independence Day in Vermont

We made it to our friend’s house in Vermont despite the rain and flash flood warnings.

We were partially boondocking on their farm; we had a standard 15 amp circuit and access to the house for water and bathrooms. It was mighty hot and humid in Vermont, but we had just enough power to keep the A/C running, which afforded us a nice place to sleep and relax when we needed some downtime :)

Our friends had just returned from vacationing in Peru the day before we arrived, so we did our best to not impose or be underfoot while we stayed.
