i’m living

It’s been forever and a month since I’ve posted here.  For the record, I started some great ideas, and never finished them.  Does that count?  No.  Okay.  Let me say I’m living.  Sometimes better than others.  What is my point?  Everything.  Also, I’m in a weird and funky mood, so bare with me.

Farm first.  The piggies are off to market…all four of them.  We have sold our dairy goats because I have nursed five children and milked two does for three seasons. I really needed a lactation break.  We miss our gals, but they are loved on by a family with more time than I.

Homeschooling has been going well.  I really need to post some reviews on here and YouTube.  I’m loving our system with workboxes.  Some of our curriculum is worthy of its own post.  Would you like that?  Do you care?  I know you do because somehow with all my random rambling, you still come back.  *muah*  I love you.

Nick has a new career. UPS.  That’s a big deal.  We’re still praying he gets onto a permanent position after the holiday season.  He really enjoys the work.  The pay is good and the benefits are great for a family this size.

Our precious poodle Luke died about a month ago.  If you follow me on Instagram, you saw a photo tribute to him.  We all miss him so much.  Nick and I have confessed to each other never being this sad over a dog before.  It has been hard.  On that note we are looking into adopting a puppy in the near future.  Stay tuned for lovableness.

I have been busy growing my new YouTube channel.  Have you subscribed yet?  I would love your support.  I have lots of grand plans for getting back on track here.  Thanks so much for staying with me.  I appreciate your support and love always.

by her side

We all got a tummy sick just before we closed on the farm (yes, we have the keys!).  Isabel was quite ill a couple of days ago, and Luke was so concerned he followed her everywhere.  I thought it was so sweet.  If she was sleeping so was he.  If she was in the bathroom, he was waiting outside the door.

This fluff ball has a very protective heart.  Sometimes it gets him into trouble, but in this case he was doing a great job.

meet luke

We finally have a puppy in our home after weeks of searching and praying for just the right addition to our family.  Meet Luke, a cockapoo (cocker spaniel/poodle) we got from a rescue.

We are so excited to have this sweet and gentle guy to pet and love and play with.  He’s pretty great.
