So SweePea had her babies yesterday. Scott and I were there for the whole thing, helping. Scott was the Midwife. I was the Assistant to the Midwife. I watched over the babies and rubbed that enormous tummy, and kept the babies pulled back in a quick jiffy if SweePea needed to move. She ended up with six in all, 2 girls and 4 boys. Somehow … Continue reading Midwife to a Pig, and Assistant to the Midwife
Our hike through Poison Ivy wasn’t nearly as scary as I’d imagined. Yes, we had to stick to the path, and all the moms and dads had to keep reminding kids to keep their hands in and not touch the greenery on either side of us for one little (though it felt long at the time) section, but the views were gorgeous. There were … Continue reading Nature Hike with 3rd Graders
Tonight I am longing for a Quilting Circle. All day long, it’s been in the back of my mind, the question from a friend wondering if she had given the impression that she didn’t want to meet with me. No. She hadn’t.

My boys adore antiques and things that show how life was in the Olden Days. The Wood House isn’t open to the public every day, so when it is open, we want to be there, and walk through … Continue reading Farm Festival at the Wood House
The animals have a large area to roam, but they really like to be walked by one of us. Here, Benjamin is walking the pigs and the goats. In the first picture, SweePea is getting really close to Ben, hoping there might be an apple or something in his back pocket. She’s the cutest, sweetest, 800-lb animal we have ever been around. Still, you want … Continue reading You Got Something in your Pocket?
In summertime, we will once again have eggs for sale. Our Chickens are not producing a lot of eggs this time of year. This just cracks me up. Continue reading Look at the Size of that Egg!
Our animals are so happy. Scott takes such good care of them. He takes them for walks every day. Continue reading Out Walking the Field with the Animals
