He is LIGHT and LIFE and TRUTH! Look to Him for the ALL the answers. He will guide us, if we'll let Him.

Trust in the Lord with all your heart do not depend on your own understanding. Seek his will in all you do, and he will show you which path to take.
Proverbs 3:5-6

White Pines--300 planted, 200 more to go! :0)

Of the 1400 trees we will plant over the next few weeks, the first 300 are in the ground--yeah! We've hit a snag today and it's called "rain". However, we do not complain as we begged the Lord for rain so much over the summer...that we are now never upset when it rains!!!

Hopefully the ground will be dry enough to try to plant again tomorrow. However, with the rain they are calling for tonight it's not likely. We may end up having to finish on Monday.

The Douglas Firs and Spruce trees come on Wednesday of next week (250). Then on Thursday or Friday we'll receive 250 Frazier Firs. So, next week will be busy, too!!

Planting Christmas Trees--2nd Year

We are getting ready to plant trees again. Here are some pictures of last year's field (1100 trees in all). It's been a year and they've done well. We've not had much loss at all. Thanks to all of Dakota's watering, watering, and more watering through the drought!!

I'm also posting a picture of a field with no trees in it. It's the one we are currently fencing and figuring the lay-out on for the trees that will be here on Wednesday, Feb. 25th.

We're excited about a new batch of trees to plant (1400--wow!), but I'm sure the excitement will ebb once we become EXHAUSTED! :0)

Keep checking back for more pictures as we plant.
