"Feed Jake, He's Been a Good Calf"

Sadly we had a mother calf who prolapsed after giving birth to this adorable calf, Jake.  When Cody found him he was laying by his dead mother-that just breaks my heart....animal or not!  With the help of several friends Cody was able to move the calf to the barn behind our house where they each gave him pointers on bottle feeding.  
Lyndon was very excited to have a new pet, Jake.  Cody named him after the country song about the dog named Jake.  Jake requires a bottle each morning and evening and is always very ready for it.
Notice the beer: still not sure if this was a joke..... Cody called me as I was still in town and told me I needed to pick up a 6 pack of beer in a bottle.  His story, "Usually calves won't start sucking on the bottle and you have to pour(a beer bottle works great) the formula down their mouths until they get a taste for it."  Well that wasn't a problem as Jake sucked down an entire bottle in about 1 minute!  As the guys each enjoyed a beer I accused them of making up a lame excuse.....

I think Jake is adorable!!!!

& Lyndon is very proud!

My Little Football Player

When I went to check on Lyndon the other night after tucking him in, this is what I found.

Last Soccer Game for 2010

Lyndon played his last and coldest soccer game on Saturday.  He had a fabulous year, team, & coaches!  I loved the positive attitude of his coach and she was very sweet to all of the kiddos.

The referee was running a little late and the kiddos are looking for him.

Lyndon scored a couple of goals during his last game.

I will really miss Lyndon being in this age division next year!

Lyndon and another boy on his team get very excited when their team makes a goal.....I think they must have learned this from the high school football boys...

I tried to make soccer ball cookies but they turned out looking pretty disgusting!  They were delicious though......

Lyndon is all smiles with his trophy. As you can see the sun was in Lyndon's eyes.

  You had a great soccer year and we are very proud of you, Lyndon!
