Summer Days on the Farm



Great Grandpa and Maryann

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.)

About dazzlingingrace

Hmm.. I love Jesus. I love my husband, Eric. I love my 8 beautiful children. I loved living in California. I love sunshine and the beach. Shopping at farmers market and the little stores downtown where I can bargin for the best deal. I love to sew and make things. I love spending time with girlfriends encouraging each other. Date nights with Eric are fabulous. I love ballroom dancing with him. The smell of my new little baby and the miracle of their existance. I love italian food- or just about all of Italy for that matter. I love art- paintings on my wall that I know personally who painted them.
