We stayed indoors all day, and my kids (mainly Dylan) were super excited about the "hurricane" outside! At one stage, Dylan hopped about from window to window, exclaiming about this thing and that. He even said:
Dylan: "I hope our house doesn't blow away".
Me: "There's no chance of that Bud, our house is built of solid block".
Dylan: *sheepishly added* "...I hope that it might blow away. It would be a *little* bit fun!"
In the evening, there was a little more drama, when my husband informed us that one of our cows, had shoved it's head into a hole of an upturned tree, and was now firmly STUCK! Cows *really* are not smart animals! So after a full days work and no dinner, (he had gone straight out to tend and check the cattle) my husband set off at 10:30pm to try and free the cow. My brother went too, and between them both and a vast array of implements, they were about to free the cow within an hour.
Today, the guys have spent almost the whole day tending to the damage and fixing fences...etc. My husband took some pictures whilst he and Dylan were out and about today, I thought they were amazing!
"Let the field be joyful, and all that is therein:
then shall all the trees of the wood rejoice
. Before the LORD: for he cometh
, for he cometh to judge the earth:
he shall judge the world with righteousness,
and the people with his truth."
~ Psalm 96:12-13
