From "to-do" to done

This weekend was very busy--most weekends are on the farm.  Arliss and I tag-teamed the mowing and were able to get 2/3 of it done in just over 3 hours, my best record yet.  
We bought roofing materials to re-roof the chicken/duck coop.  Which Hubby and the boys worked on today.  The cows have been released into the middle pasture.  The soybeans have been planted. The hay fields have been cut and after drying for a full day, are now being raked.  
Arliss and I planted cucumbers, watermelon, and pumpkins, put up the hammock and took care of all of the various birds. 
We have 6 geese and 7 ducks that are a year old, 17 chickens that are about 5 weeks old, 3 Rouen ducks that we are caring for while their owners are on vacation, and then 40+ eggs, either in the incubator or in the nest of our geese. Oh, we also have 3 ducklings and 1 gosling that we hatched.  
Whew!  
After church on Sunday I came home and cut the grass on the west side of the driveway.  Travis will finish up mowing around the garden once the coop roof is finished.  Hubby finished planting the garden this week. We have beans, tomatoes, peas, corn, and carrots growing in there now.  

Overall, it's been a full week.  I'm grateful for sleep every night and thankful as well, for summer break.  

As always, I have included pictures. 

Sending love and tired, but contented kisses from the farm,
