Jeremy and Dad talking about what calves to keep as bulls. We always try to keep a few back for those who have mentioned they would like to buy a good bull. We had a lot to choose from this year!

This lady is my rock. She listens when I need to talk. Encourages when I need building up. Advises when I don’t know what to do. And loves even when I don’t deserve it. She is the most selfless person I know, and the greatest example of motherhood. I’m so blessed she’s mine.

We had the best day with the best people! First Communion with two of my favorite boys and Mother’s Day with the most wonderful moms!

Captain, who goes by Cap, was an orphan. His mom passed as she was giving birth, and the colt was given to my mom. She raised him by bottle, and now, he is helping raise my kiddos.

Last night we had friends come for a few hours, and we shared a meal. We had never met them. Only through Facebook. But, it was four hours of non-stop talking, community, and fun! And now, we are “real” friends.

Sometimes it’s tough being the little one. But sometimes, it’s the best! For brandings, he sits in the back of the truck and guards the snacks. And by guards, I mean eats.

“The greatest love story of all time is contained in a tiny white host.” - Fulton Sheen

I’ve worried and worried that I haven’t adequately prepared the boys for the greatest sacrament they will receive on Sunday. I’ve fretted about imparting on them the beauty, love, and ultimate sacrifice contained in that little Host. I have stressed about conveying how this is the solution to all of our problems. And, I have failed. I’ve not been able to tell them adequately how Jesus in the Eucharist will change their lives. I can’t.

But He can. And He will.

He had just gotten one in the hole and went on to beat his Daddy. What a needed, joy-filled, relaxing Sunday we had!

This guy is out this morning checking the branded calves from this weekend...making sure they’re up and walking, checking to make sure the bulls who were cut aren’t clotting or bleeding too much...basically making sure all is well. Ranch life is 24/7, but it’s a beautiful one.

I had such a good time with family and friends last night at @oldhousevintagemarket! The vendors were great, the food delicious, and the entertainment fun! It’s still going today if you’re in the area!

I love to bake and cook. I am no chef, but I enjoy feeding my family. Sometimes when I’m stressed I bake, too. Ha! I think deep down it’s a way for me to show my love to my family. Just like the generations of women before me. In fact, I have my great-grandmother’s rolling pen, and each time I use it, I wish for the stories it could tell.

Branding cattle is a family affair here on the ranch. Because of their ages and my duties at home, we cannot participate in every branding right now. But, the one at our home, with our cows and calves, is special for us. And that day, all hands are on deck!

Jeremy does it all. I help brand. Carter helps flank. Peter sprays iodine on the cut bulls to sterilize. John Paul helps brand. Sophie and Gen take care of passing out drinks and snacks to the crew. They help spray, too! Henry is our greatest spectator, and Lucy rests up for everyone who can’t.

It’s the epitome of what it takes to do what we do...togetherness. Every job is important. Every person has a role. These cows and calves depend on us for their needs, to provide the best possible environment for their growth, and to safely and effectively care for them and the land.

Branding is a part of that. And we take great pride in doing it well here on Bell Road.
