The Lord has blessed me so richly beyond comprehension!

Such gifts!

Some More Variety



shawn sent me a picture of how his office desk looks at work :)

Miles' first harvest of newly polished stones from his rock tumbler

aren't they pretty?

Celene made a cute picture of sheep using wool from a sheep pelt that was very old and disintegrating



The next few pictures are from this morning...I love how simple things like candles can keep kids
 entertained and learning for at least an hour on a rainy morning. :)







and lastly, Theo fell asleep on Eli's bed this morning, watching me clean :)

Shawn's First Buck!!


He did it!
I'm so proud.
And I love the freezer full of meat.


Other Weekend Stuff



Miles got a big molar removed because of too much pain...it was tough experience but he was brave!

Theo fell asleep on the floor one night because he deemed his bed unequivocal

my first ever batch of caramel popcorn! and it was super yummy!

Hannah got the opportunity to milk a goat at our friend Nola's house

so cute!


First Curl Cut


This is always a most painful moment for Mommy,
but Eli did great at his first haircut last week!





Reading List Reward ~ Blue Harbor


Grandma took the kids to Blue Harbor on Friday as a reward for completely their
first Reading List this year.

Blue Harbor is always such a treat!









Miles Shooting a Military Rifle

video

Last Saturday, Shawn and Miles spent the morning with a work friend sighting in guns and clearing brush on a new hunting location.
It was some great man/boy time!
this was definitely a highlight of the morning, and took some courage to try!
