What an incredible and diverse week we have had here at the homestead. You could feel and see fall slipping away quickly. The temperatures took a downward turn the wild birds began heading South in mass.
We always put Thanksgiving before Christmas, but my sewing might have had a more winter theme this week. And I may have broken down and already bought a Christmas gift or two.
Homeschooling and enjoying nature, even with the first snow fall yesterday, continue to be moments of growth and delight for the country kids. What a magical week we have had! So what made me smile this week? A LOT of things!! Here are just some of them….
|She may be getting up there in years, and she may not lay any more, |
but Grumpy Goldie will always have a very special place in my heart.
|My little helper, always willing to lend a hand at chore time.|
|The Sandhill Cranes that migrate through our area. Always amazing to see.|
|Some Christmas pillows I made for the country kids.|
|Baby Girl is growing up to be a fine young lady. |
So glad we kept one of the babies that hatched.
|Homeschool art class outside, why not!|
|Fluffy butts, nuff said! |
|A Christmas present for my donkey loving littlest country kid.|
At least we don’t have to feed or clean up poo with this pet!
|OMG!!!! I about died from excited joy at the price at the pump!!|
|Just hanging out on a Friday night watching migratory birds. |
The way life should be for kids…. slow, simple, yet awe inspiring!
|First snow of the year…. No time for a coat mom!!!! Well at least |
he put shoes on before running out the door. *smacks forehead*
Childhood magic at it’s best!
Remember to take time out of your busy day to find your own things to make you smile!
