Heading off on an adventure in grandma’s motorhome! Don’t worry, we’re parked. Stretching our legs at a rest stop somewhere in Illinois. These kids are such good travelers! Our first night was spent in Lawrence, Kansas. We woke up to a mighty thunderstorm that continued into late morning. Thunderstorms are my absolute favorite. Mud puddles [...]
Spring Has Sprung and Now We Have Turkeys!
Photo memory dump!
It’s another one of those times when I realized I haven’t blogged in awhile. Let me try and catch up with a little photo memory dump of the past few months... Merry Christmas 2020! Post Christmas snuggles with Papa! What a magical day! Perfect weather and exquisite views of the Royal Gorge. Cheesin’ Someone doesn’t [...]
We woke up on our last day of school before Thanksgiving break to a lovely blanket of snow! It just begged for Charlie Brown Thanksgiving and some pie making! Lincoln recently made his first pie by himself, banana cream. We ALL agreed there is now a tie for favorite: right up there with chocolate cream. [...]
Snow Villages and Roasting Pheasants
I am getting real creative at these blog post titles, I know. For the past 36 hours I’ve been brining two of the pheasants the boys brought home from their hunting trip in preparation for my most intimidating meal to date...This coming from the girl who recently made rabbit stew! Oh. My. Gosh. So. Good. [...]
We have a teenager!
Lincoln is officially a teenager! To celebrate, we had his best buddies over for a Minute to Win It game night and sleepover. Johnny decided to “make it interesting” with cash prizes, because who doesn’t love the competition? I wish I could have recorded all the laughter and joy. Our house was full of so [...]
It’s been one helluva season. Homeschooling has been going great, the kids are really thriving and I’m definitely enjoying all the quality time. Not going to lie, it’s not always easy. I’m learning how to extend a lot of grace, not only to the kids but also to myself. The two hour window of “play [...]
October so far…
Summer might be over, but you bet we will soak up the rest of these 70° days with neighbors, friends and family! Crosby helping dad build the sheep’s “pen-demic.” Neighbor/Auntie lets Lincoln come help with the goats often. Trying to get someone excited for our Sunday morning walk...he currently wants to be carried everywhere. We [...]
Our favorite two year old
Crosby turned TWO on Sept 3rd. We spend a lot of our days laughing because of this pint size nugget! Quirky, witty, genius child with so many words and motor skills, this dude continually blow us away. We think he must have a phonographic memory, as he remembers EVERYTHING he hears. E.g. we didn’t realize [...]
School has started!
Second day of school photos, because I forgot yesterday. We are praising God daily that He called us to homeschool. Johnny has been so encouraging and helpful. Before he leaves for work, he jots down cute notes for us on the wipe off board. I could not imagine doing any of this without his support! [...]
