Just a farm girl at heart

Idaho will always be my home, its where I grew up and I personally think I had one of the best childhood's ever :) I absolutely loved growing up on a farm, okay okay so at the time I might not have loved it...I thought my dad was so mean to make me go out and do chores all the time, especially when I was in high school, my dad was seriously trying to put a damper on my social life. Haha ;)
But, as I've gotten older I have cherished my farm memories and have actually gotten really homesick for life on the farm.
Even though I don't live all that far away, I still don't make it home very often. So a couple weeks ago I made the drive home and it was seriously so good to be 'back home.' I always love seeing my family and it was so good to be back in Idaho.
I never thought I'd say this, but putting on my rubber boots to go out and do chores never felt so good!!! (Now hopefully my dad doesn't get wind of this or he'll try to talk me into coming home to pick rock!! haha) Sheep herd 2010 Visiting the sheep herd My baby brother...who is not a baby anymore. I can't beleive how much he has grown up, especially since Logan has been gone on his mission. Caleb has def stepped up to the plate and become my Dad's 2nd in command. I don't know what my Dad would do without Caleb's help :) My spunky lil Livie Jo!! This picture is cropped for obvioius reasons, haha I was so excited to pull a lamb! Seriously though... The boss man And of course it wouldn't be home without the cows... Feeding calves

Not for the weary or weak, haha. Some live footage of lamb pulling... ;)

:) Idaho farm girls rock! Totally know exactly how you feel! I still get lonesome for the farm, and I'm still in Idaho! My parents just sold our farm a couple years ago. Best childhood ever. :)

Holy shiz! You really did that!? Wow Megan, I am impressed! I guess someone's gotta do it.

I love the farm girl in you! Livie is so cute, I love that she held the little baby lamb. So sweet!

There is definitely no place like home. I didn't really farm, but I do miss country life. I'm not really in the city, but it's just different.

You're the woman, Megan! I love that you are so cute and fashionable but that you can get down and dirty, too. The farm life really is great. We didn't have animals like you guys, but I will always be a country girl. I'll pray for you that your dad doesn't ask you to come home and pick rock...NOBODY enjoys that! :)

WOW! So is there anything you can't handle? I find it so mind blowing that your such a tough 'tom-boy' farm girl on one hand but then on the other your this ridiculously gorgeous stylish little put together mommy on the other. Crazy! Your the total package Meg! Every guys DREAM GIRL! Hope you know what a catch you are. I just think the world of you everytime I look at your blog. Hope all is well! Give that little Livie girl a squeeze for me.
