Happy Anniversay, Mom and Dad!

I am so thankful that 52 years ago you two feel in love on your blind date, got engaged on your second date and married 4 months later.  In those 52 years, you were parted by a war, moved several times, and raised 3 children.  From the three of us, you now have 7 grandchildren (3 that are married and one that is about to get married) and 4 great grandchildren.

Happy 52nd Anniversary Mom and Dad!!!  We love you so much!!!

September already!?!?

The other day I was planning on doing a 'farewell to August' post and just realized that we are now in September.  This year is flying by too fast and needs to slow down just a wee bit.

August was full of school lessons, life lessons and fun. We ended August on a good note...a field-trip to Montshire Museum to see Sue the Tyrannosaurus Rex.  Nick and Sam are still talking about it and hope that other people will have the opportunity to see her.

September is a busy month for us...lessons, birthdays, a baptism and getting ready for a trip out west.  Now I just need to 'stop and smell the roses' :)

Field Trip Friday

Today the kids and I went to Montshire Museum to see Sue, the T-Rex.  We also walked on one of the outdoor trails.  The kids had a great time and enjoyed the many hands-on activities.

Our second time watching monarchs emerging from a chrysalis. Amazing to watch!

Farewell Licorice (9/24/13 - 8/17/14)

Last night as I did a head count of the chickens, I realized that we were missing one.  It never crossed my mind when we came home from church, or when I gave the chickens table scraps for a treat, that Licorice was no where to be found.  Crocodile tears were flowing from Samantha's eyes and all I could do was hug her.
You can't see it in the above picture, but when Licorice was outside in the bright sun her feathers had a beautiful green sheen to them.
We will miss you Licorice and I am sure the other hens and Sunshine (the roo) will miss you too.
