A couple weeks ago we went on an adventure to find mud. We didn't find mud but we did find muddy water. And lots of it! We took the window off the gator so we all got pretty soaked and I about froze to death. There wasn't a dry inch of clothes on me. But, as you can tell by the following pictures, we all had a blast! 

These first few are taken with my phone. Love my Lifeproof case. :)

And the rest are taken with Adam's GoPro!

I've also got some pretty hilarious videos but I can't seem to get them to upload!

If you can't tell from the pictures, we had so much fun! I am so thankful for a family that will go out and do crazy things with me. Life would be pretty boring without you guys. :)

A. Fisher and Co.

Andrew, Adam and I did special music for church this last Sabbath. Andrew and I practiced a little the night before but last minute we decided we needed another guitar so Andrew could play his ganjo. So... Sabbath morning I asked Adam to play with us. Talk about last minute. Ha! We practiced for about 10 minutes between sabbath school and church. We messed up but we had so much fun! We are adding this to our repertoire for campmeeting and hoping to recruit a few more people to our "band". ;)

P.S. Thanks for the band name Emily!

Third Year.

  • I now know how to properly remove eyeballs, teeth, ovaries and testicles. Watch out world!  (I am not a fan of pulling teeth! Yuck!)
  • I have palpated lots of cows and actually know what I'm doing now. Anybody need some cows preg checked? :) 
  • We are smack dab in the middle of the theriogenology class. I have a love/hate relationship with it. I love the information but there is a lot of it! If only I didn't have other classes to study for as well... 
  • I can do a lameness exam on your horse plus put in urinary and IV catheters. 
  • I anesthetized my first patient Friday. She survived and I survived. (I was a little stressed about it but it was actually pretty fun.)
  • I have studied lots and lots. I have more free time in the afternoons though so I have been able to keep my weekend studying to a minimum. 
  • But most of all this semester has been fun! Much more hands on and I actually feel like I'm learning something worthwhile and putting the past 2 years of studying to use.

We Went to the Lake.

Things are finally starting to slow down around here and I'm soaking up my last few weeks of freedom and trying to get things ready for school. 

So much fun has been had this summer that I don't even know where to start! So, I'm just gonna work backwards. Last Thursday Adam, Lexy and I got adventurous. We had been wanting to go to the lake but my dad is really busy this time of year and it never worked out for him to go. Soooo... we went without him. Just us kids! I felt a little old... but that's another story. Thank goodness nothing broke down. Of course we got so brave because Howard was their with his boat and all of Kenny's family, so we weren't completely alone. 

We had so much fun! Even if I didn't even get in the water once. The water was perfect and it was just us there. 

John and Elisa joined us for a little while. 

Adam worked on his backroll.

I guess being a grown up isn't so bad sometimes. :)

Thunder Game!

We took Adam to a Thunder game for his birthday about a week ago and I have been so busy running back and forth that I almost forgot to post about it. It was so much fun and worth all the driving!

My parents had seats on the opposite side of the court. Adam and I got to sit by some very interesting guys... haha

We were up in the nose bleeds but there really aren't any bad seats. The arena isn't that big.

My mom got Adam's name put on the big screen during halftime for his birthday. He was pretty excited and surprised when his name came up. And of course the picture turned out terrible. I had my phone ready but it wouldn't focus on the light of the screen... 

Oh! And... my boyfriend was there! Last year during the finals one of the interviewers for TNT just really amazed with all his different suits, so Lexy and Macy started calling him my boyfriend. He wasn't wearing anything too crazy this night but it is a blue plaid suit. (Hard to tell in the picture)

 And the Thunder won! It was a really great game against the Spurs and the win put them back in first place! 

We ended up getting home a little after 1 in the morning and I had to get up about 6:30 to head to Stillwater for class. I do not do well on 5 hours of sleep, to say the least. ha It was all worth it though!

Happy Sibling's Day!

Today is Sibling's day and I happen to have a pretty awesome sibling. We may not always get along the greatest but your my sister and therefore will always be my best friend. 

Can't wait to see you in about a month and a half. Fun times will be had this summer! :) 

Also, you need to get home because I have no pictures of you and me and on my new electronic devices so I had to steal these fun ones from my facebook page. ;)

Love and miss you lots! 

Climbing Mount "EveREST"

Last Sabbath was one of those you don't want to end. (Well I wish they all would never end but you get the idea.) Lots of visitors were at the farm and it was another gorgeous day. After church we all headed out to climb "THE Mountain." The mountain being the highest point in creek county which is just to the west of us. It's really more like a hill. This is the same area that we were in when we walked the creek bed in this post. You made even recognize a particular tree. :)

It was a much bigger group than our usual, Elisa, Andrew and I. 

We did go part of the way up in the creek bed. Lots of briars and dead trees to see the waterfall. 

 And this is the waterfall...

We need rain. ha It did make for a nice resting spot after the climb. And frog eggs were found. Gus may or may not have eaten a few...

We made it! 

And there's the farm. 

Gus was worn out! He had a rough day. Before we even left, the crazy cat at the farm attacked him and tore up the inside of his ears plus that was a pretty long walk for his short legs. If we made to much noise in the house that night he would start howling at us. Don't disturb the poor guys sleep. 

We had popcorn and sandwiches for supper before heading into town for vespers.

 Lots of music at vespers. Perfect way to end the day.

Oh, and I started my garden on Sunday. 

I went home last night and almost all of my little plants had been eaten. I'm assuming the rabbit from last year... I didn't think they would bother them since the plants were so tiny but now I have to start all over again and will be putting the fence up immediately.
