Cochran Chronicles

Greetings from our family to yours! We've had a fun and busy past month and I now have a lot of blogging to catch up on!!! :) (Maybe someday I'll get an opportunity to post more frequently :)

Here is an overview of the updates I've posted below...

The middle of April, our family took a trip to Tennessee. We spent a wonderful week as a family just resting and spending time together. We were also able to do quite a bit of sight seeing as well, so you will be able to see some of the pictures from that.

Shenandoah is growing and changing so much. I think we nearly smother her with love!!! :) I've done a fun post of random pictures of her from the past couple of months and I hope you enjoy those.

We have baby goats now!!! Our mama goat had three kids, two girls and a boy. We are thankful to be able to say that they are all healthy and strong.

The end of April, we celebrated my 17th birthday and then a week later, we celebrated Sayer's 4th! I've done posts on both of those as well.

A couple of days after my birthday, Daddy and I hived my second hive of bees!!! That is rather exciting and I hope that they will do as well as my other hive is. We should be able to get honey off of my first hive later this summer. We can't wait!!!

About three weeks ago, a new Farmer's Market started up in Enid. We've been participating in that each Saturday and have been able to sell quite a few eggs there which is huge blessing! Our chickens started laying so many eggs that we had been stuck with an over abundance!!! :) This past weekend, I was also able to sell some baked goods which I made at a commercial kitchen owned by some friends of ours who have a dairy to the north of us. It has been a lot of fun and a great learning experience!

On top of this we've been doing a complete re-organization and re-arranging of the house. It has been quite the project (it looked pretty bad for a while - things almost always look worse before they look better - so, we didn't take any pictures of this). The boys room became the storage/sewing room, the boys moved upstairs and the guest room became their room, we changed up our living room, kitchen, hall closet, library and laundry rooms. We took down a set of bunk beds from us girls' room and moved it down to the store room (extra beds work good sometimes) and then put a full size bed in place of that in our room(it really gives us more space in our room which is nice!) We've done a lot more too, but I think I'll stop there :). Thankfully it has gone well and I believe we are just about done.

I hope everyone enjoys all of the new posts!!!

Hi, Savannah,
I just talked to my Aunt Mary, your grandmother. I hear Lori is coming to see you. I hope you have a nice visit. I enjoyed seeing all your photos and the vacation you took in TN. I think you are doing a very good job with your photography.
If you get my email, let me know and I'll write to you again.
