Well the new driveway was put to the test right away, as it's been raining for days. It seems to be holding up great. The creek overflowed its banks and flowed through the back yard. I think this was the highest we've seen the water get since we moved here. Pretty sure I am going to have a big mess to clean up when the water recedes.
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.
