The Past Few Weeks

Here are just a few pictures that we've taken over the past few weeks.

Daddy talking to Seth on "defending his realm".

Knight Seth

Stasia playing her piano.

Stasia lost her second tooth!!!

Sayer is ready for lunch. But, lunch is not ready for Sayer!!!

Seth and Sayer looking at books together.

The kittens love to get inside daddy's boots! This is Jubee.

A Visit With The Morris Family

Last Monday, we were blessed to have the Morris Family come to our home for food and fellowship. We had a wonderful time with them. Thank you all so much for coming!!!

They caught Gosel!

Everyone enjoyed the zip line!

Playing on the swing set.

Sabrina, Sayer, Seth and Sienna atop our new hay bale.

Jeremiah and Mercy

Hosanna and Josiah

The men fellowshipping.

The kids had a fun time chasing the geese. The geese behaved very nicely.

Savannah, Bethany, Anna and Sabrina

The Morris's took Sariah our goat back home with them to breed her. They took Jubilee along too so they could keep each other company. Thank you Morris family!

The Goats are on their way. It will be so much fun when the kids are born and we are looking forward to the goats milk next spring!

Our Library Room

Here are some pictures of our library shelves that daddy recently built.

The start of the job.

Sayer views the work site.

The building begins...

Daddy hard at work.


The building and painting complete, next comes the organizing. Didn't daddy do a great job?!

Sabrina and I helped mommy unpack and organize the shelves. It went very well and it is wonderful to have all of our books out again!!! (They had been packed since our move a year and a half ago!)

The work (or rather fun) of unpacking and organizing goes on...

and on.

The boxes pile up. (This wasn't even half of them!) Mommy enlisted the children in taking these boxes down to the trailer.

Then, instead of taking them down to the trailer (or as they said "on the way down to the trailer") Sabrina had an idea...

Let's slide down the hill on the boxes!!! (Note: Mommy did approve it.)

The art of play.

What did they accomplish more of - sliding down the hill or hauling the

Our completed bookshelves. Mommy did a great job organizing them. This is such a fun room to be in. I think it's one of my favorites in the whole house!
