There is new LIFE on our farm!!

We have our first baby chick that one of our hens have hatched. She sat for 22 days and out came this beautiful site. It was so sweet. We had been waiting for years for one of our hens to sit. 

She is being a wonderful momma. Keeping that baby chick so warm under her wings. 

We go check on them multiple times throughout the day. 

We are thrilled for new life. I felt like having a chick shower for her :) but instead we bought some baby chick  food! Have a wonderful Sunday!!

Daily walk

One of my favorite things about living in the country are the walks. 


It gives my mind a break. A step back away from the world. It is something we do every day.

 Some days I take multiple walks. Sometimes during the cool mornings and again after dinner. It is a time to reflect. 

I find it to be a great stress reliver to get outside and enjoy all that God has given us. Not only do children need the outdoors but us moms do also! 

God says for us to be keepers at home. 

After I tend to all of my jobs in the house, we go out for a long walk. I love to be home. 

Do you take a daily walk?

What is Family?

It seems more and more this type of picture is disappearing from our country. 

Families are so far from what God intended. 

He put a man and a woman married together under God. Children should be raised in a home with both parents. In a loving home. 

I am very strong in believing that so many children suffer because of their family choices. It seems all of the adults around my age are doing things they shouldn't. 

I am here to tell them what they are chasing is no good. Family is so special. 

God does not want divorce. When a couple find hard times, they just give up it seems. No one said marriage would be easy. No one said raising kids to love and obey God and their parents would be easy. But it is worth it!

My hope for our country is that families would stop seeking glory in things that won't last, and start placing their hope and trust in God and the family they have been given. 

"That is why a man leaves his father and mother and is united to his wife, and they become one flesh." -Genesis 2:24

Pool Day

My parents are building a new home that is all one level. They are doing this to help with the laundry and up keep. Their last home also had a lot of mowing. This new home just has a lot. As they were building their home the pool company had time to do it right then. So they put it in within a week. 

Can you tell my boys enjoyed it? They are about 2 weeks away from moving in. They can't wait!

Kase is 10 months

Kase you are such a sweet big boy!! Look at you growing so big. You are our sunshine. 

You love:
Outside time (swinging, walks, bike rides)

You love: 
Crawling all Around
Going into the toy room 

You nap 2/3 times per day. You sleep 7:30pm - 6:30am. But here lately you haven't been sleeping well. Teething again maybe. 

You went from a size 9 months to 18!

You have had a cold this past month alon with your teething. It hasn't been a fun time for you, but you've handled it well. 

I love you!!

New School Year 2016

My big boys began school on Wednesday 8-17-16. It was a wonderful summer but I really believe my boys were ready to see some buddies. 

We have picked public school, for now. I say that because I truly believe that is what God wants for our boys and what is best for both of them at this time. Is it our forever? Maybe, maybe not. We go year to year. 

So this year Karson is in 2nd and Kipton in 1st. 

The hardest part will be them seperated during the school day. They absolutely love each other and are so close! They were excited to tell me yesterday they have lunch and recess together. That is a huge blessing! 

Baby brother who is 9 months didn't know quite what was going on but I'm sure he's wondering why it's so quiet at home during the mornings. 

Day 2. A little tired from a long first day and church in the evening but happy too! PE day which they love and look forward to. 

Baby Kase and I will stay busy with home chores until time to pick those big boys up. We sure miss them! It is always a big adjustment for us all when they go back. 

I pray for a great school year!

Summer in the Country

We take big walks to the mailbox each evening after dinner. We asked My husband not to pick up the mail when he gets home so that we have something to do each evening :) simple living there. 

The goats enjoy when we are sitting on the bench. The especially love baby feet.

Which speaking of baby feet, this baby is growing like a weed. He is pulling up to stand on everything! 

He also gets tired on our evening walks. He really wants 3 naps a day but will only take 2. So his sweet little head starts getting heavy while the boys play and run. 

Some evening pictures of the backyard. Going out to feed and put the goats up for the night. So peaceful. 

Have a great Thursday! This week has flown by!!

Modest Outfit

I have never posted about outfits or style.  It's somewhat awkward to me to take pictures of myself :) but I thought I would step out of my comfort zone and share some outfits each week on the blog. 

I love to wear knee length or longer skirts. Not only are they comfortable to me, but pleasing to The Lord. I have had a strong conviction towards this for many years. 

Top: Thrifted from Goodwill
Skirt: Walmart 
Shoes: TJ Max - 6 years old or more
Earrings: Target 

My mom is awesome at finding good clothes at the thrift store. She got this top for .99 cents at our local thrift store. 

What is your modest style like? I would love it if you would share your modest outfits and share the link up! 

Hope you have a blessed week!

Can you live simple like the Amish?

I enjoy simple living. 

I love being at home with my family. It's the best place in this world to me. 

The Amish are known for their simple lives. 

Why is it that people want to visit the Amish country? 

I know. I see the simple living. 

Anyone can live this way. 

Stay home. 

Declutter your entire house. 

Start with one room at a time. You don't need a bunch of stuff. Just the basics. Your home will look more clean and neat this way. 

Throw away and give to the thrift store nearby. 

Have your kids to help. 

They don't need all of those toys anyway.

Write out a list of what room you will do each day and make it your job that day to start and to finish all in that day. Make it a challenge. 

Today I am going to purge and organize the pantry. 

Ask yourself: "Do I use this each week? Is it necessary?" 

Stuff in the home keeps you down. It makes your home seem impossible to keep clean. 

Pray that you will become more organized and clutter free. 

It takes time to change your ways, but it can be done.

Kase is 9 months

Oh time, you are moving too fast! Our sweet baby can't be 9 months but he sure is. 

  • You started crawling a few days after you turned 9 months.
  • You are happy with yourself to be on the move. 
  • You're taking it easy on mom and just moving slow ;)
  • You have had a lot of teething pain and a head cold this month.
  • You really enjoy being home and napping in your own bed.
  • You love to tough the goats and chickens.
  • You are taking 2 or 3 naps per day.
  • We take you on walks down our road and you are so quiet and just enjoy looking around.

You started pulling up to your knees. 

You LOVE your brothers!

We are so thankful for this strong close bond.
