The Farm

One day this summer the dear friends I meet and pray with each week and I took all of our kids to visit a sage of a woman who has meant a lot to all of us.  Several years ago she moved out to Middleburg.  It is gorgeous out there:  low stone fences, horse farm after horse farm and winding roads.

The moms all got to visit with Mary Ann and our city slicker kids got a needed dose of "country".  My kids desperately want to live on a farm.  Sigh.

Climbing fences, petting horses, collecting tadpoles ... sheer bliss for my kids!

The tadpoles didn't last long after they morphed and some didn't grow legs at all.  I think the the nearest stream water I changed out for them wasn't murky enough and arrested their development.  The last two were released at the other Fabulous Farm event of the year.  But that ... is another post for another time.


  1. There is something so magical about farms. I hope you get to go back next summer.

  2. I stumbled onto your blog while looking for another and couldn't help but notice your amazing photos. I am also a trailing spouse, in Delhi at the moment, not too far from your last posting in Kathmandu. I also have a Canon, a 40D and am interested in photography. Can you share with me what lens you are using? Your kids are adorable.

    Best Regards,
