It’s been a fun week. The children have explored just about every square inch of Great Grandpa and Great Grandma’s farm. They found a bird with a broken wing and tried to nurse it back to health. ( It didn’t make it.) They found that if you hit the roof of the barn, it explodes with bats. They befriended Patches, the cat who now thinks she is part of the family. Oh, and lots of snakes and salamanders and squirrels. They have brought me hundreds of little flowers that grow in the fields and the boys are currently trying to figure out how to build a loft in the barn (about 15 feet off the ground).
We pitched tents for the boys to sleep in and have pretty much taken over the little field in front of the orchard. The girls are sleeping upstairs in the house and Eric and I have the motorhome to ourselves. (Well, not really…Gabe and Maryann keep joining us.)
And many more pictures and stories to come soon…
