After visiting with Dan and Urs and their babies it was on to Connecticut for a visit at Elmlawn. We picked blueberries, made jam, hung out by the pool, visiting my grandparents, and had a little birthday for Josiah with Kevin's family. Grammy and Grampa got a few bikes for the girls and Glori really learned to ride without the training wheels this week. Grammy and Grampa took them to Roseland Park and to Auntie Caitlin's work for ice cream which seems to be becoming a favorite tradition for the kids.
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.
