What a wonderfully productive day we had today. The kids spent the night at my parents and spent most of the day up there. Kevin and I got an early start and did some much needed work in the garden. After that we unloaded dads truck into the house to make room for another trip to the storage unit and grabbed a quick bite to eat.Then we headed off to our most recent big project. We are taking down an old barn for the lumber. It is a very old barn with some really nice old wide boards we are hoping to use in our bathroom remodel. After a couple hours there we headed back to Mom's to help organize. We put up the border in the guest room are rearranged furniture and emptied boxes. After an enjoyable dinner, Dad and Kevin made another trip to the storage unit for more boxes. Boy will I sleep well tonight!
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.
