There were  holes of dirt  all over the place. the rooster was cool. he was warning the hens that we were coming. it was like a little chicken shaped alarm clock

the country

I woke up this morning at 6:15 and the moon was still up. It was full and shining clearly.  It was right above the pecan tree outside my window.  It was so pretty. God is awesome. It is cool to see just a little of how cool God is. The sunrise is so pretty. It looks like somebody just mixed up a bunch of colors and spilled the can out.
