Last month this kid became a teenager. He has grown so much over the past year and I’m not just talking his height, which he likes to remind me has overshadowed my own. This has been such a cool season of opportunity for Boone. We spent last year homeschooling. In addition to his “regular” school [...]
The kids and I spent a perfect, crisp Colorado morning enjoying the start of our favorite season with some of our favorite friends at an apple farm! We knew going into it that the U-Pick wasn’t pickable due to an early freeze, but our hearts were set on apple cider donuts. Turns out the bakery [...]
Summer break is over, the grass is beginning to brown, and we just spotted a few of our Aspen leaves changing color. Come on fall colors, we’re ready for you! Crosby’s going to have to get used to wearing clothes again soon. It was chicken processing day this past week. At one point Johnny glanced [...]
First things first: go pee on a tree, take a seat and watch everyone else set up camp. #youngestchild Everywhere she goes, she finds wildflowers and brings them to me to stick in water. We had the most beautiful centerpieces all week! I love this phase of her life and never want it to end. [...]
We were stoked to drive Uncle Jim’s rzrs in the Fourth of July parade and throw candy at the crowd (or eat 6 lollipops in the back seat if you’re name was Crosby). She’s ready to celebrate America! Yes. That’s the father of my children. Don’t you love it when you can spend the day [...]
I’m hoping one of the boys gets a job there solely for a discount!
Boone went out to feed the ducks the other morning and was greeted by two freshly hatched ducklings that came waddling out from underneath the duck house! We knew we had a broody mama but didn’t think much of it. Apparently we need to give her more credit in the future. I mean, we did [...]
The baby ducklings that we incubated and hatched were just introduced to the pond and welcomed by their mamas! Lots of happy duckling noises over here these days. We sheared the sheep! And be “we” I mean Johnny had help from Uncle Jim and neighbor Jason. The turkeys are getting HUGE! They are very gentle [...]
Our mama bunny Faye makes some pretty cute babies. These eight little guys are Flemish Giant + Rex mix. I spy Lincoln snuggling with our ferocious (eye roll) Pyrenees princess guard dog.
I don’t even care that they made a huge mess and burnt the pan because I didn’t have to lift a finger to help. Nor am I allowed to clean the kitchen! These kids are the best! While I was in the shower, Lincoln yelled through the closed door, “Can Boone and I make homemade [...]
