What a beautiful day it was today. After church, and icecream from the general store for lunch (a little bribe positive reinforcement for the kids being brave enough to go up and sing) we headed out back for a little mountain hiking. The sun was shining and we found little signs of spring here and there. We saw tracks and tree scratches and buds and animal holes, all very exciting for the little ones. Up one side of the mountain and down the other! The carpet guy also came and finished up Mom and Dads house, very exciting for all of us.
I am a stay at home, homeschooling mom to 3 crazy kids, and wife to a husband who puts up with us all. We have a 120 year old farmhouse we are sure will take just as long to renovate, a one acre garden and too many animals! I am trying to live a slower, simpler life without being dependant on material things, and teach my children to live in a manner that is pleasing to God. Our adventure is challenging but rewarding, and I wouldn't change it a bit.
