Family Campout

We camped out in our yard before the weather got too hot, and by that, I mean we were FREEZING that night in the tent. It was totally worth it though.  Despite the lack of sleep the kids had the BEST time.  










Mother's Day

My mom and I around 1995.


"You are the trip I did not take,
You are the pearls I could not buy,
You are my blue Italian lake,
You are my piece of foreign sky." -Anne Campbell

My kids are my life.  I am so so happy to be a mom.  There is no greater work on this earth.


 Brought in our first garden radishes to eat with dinner.
Bug making his noodle recipe for me.
This was the best meal I have had in a LONG time.  I LOVED it.

Bear's 6th Birthday

Totally missed posting about Bear's sixth birthday from March.  He prepared for his birthday weeks in advance.  He made the crown to wear on his birthday. I love this little boy so much.  He is sweet, compassionate, sensitive, affection, funny, and loves his family.  He really enjoys working outside on the farm and is a great helper.  

His presents: A globe,
new shoes, 
Ramen Noodles (that is a true smile of joy right there!),
A pocket shirt and money from Poppi and Gigi,
Farm Boots (an item used every day around here),
and a Castle Set.
He had his best friend from church, Kai, over to play all afternoon and evening.
He really wanted to have a sword fight for his party so he prepared this "armor" to wear for it.
He picked out some GI Joe guys for his cake and the bright orange frosting.

Field Trip to the Zoo

It takes awhile to get to our zoo, so we have only been once since moving here.  I was suprised how much the kids loved it.  I am so grateful to spend school days with them and that we are lucky enough to have fun days like this together.
