New blog site

So I have decided that I am moving my blog page.  I have loved blogger for many years but it just makes more sense to have my webpage and blog all together in one.  This site will remain up however I will not be posting new material here.  Check out the new blog & website at

Wow! I'm behind

So it just hit me today that I missed my blog anniversary or blogaversary!

I started blogging in late June of can check out my first post here
I definitely had a different view in the beginning of how this blog would work and all the features I would do.  But this blog is about our farm life, our faith, and our family.  As scattered as it sometimes seems this blog is the truest reflection of me as a wife, mom and person.  

Some weeks I'm obsessed with sewing and others I would prefer to be scrapping lots (please don't tell William).  My main goal of this blog has remained the same over the last 4 share with you a glimpse into the life of a farm let you know that we are some giant corporation or evil doers...we are just everyday people who find joy in hardwork and a different way of life than the majority of Americans.  
Here are a few pictures to show you why I missed the blogaversary!

It has rained more in the last few weeks than I have ever known it to rain in the summertime here...rain=mud around the farm.

More rain also means weeds grow extremely quickly!  Our poor garden had been being neglected.

Wyatt has been working with William more and more.  Which is a great way for them to bond but it meant last Friday I had to take him to the Dr. because he had a serve allergic reaction to chiggers.  BTW
 Wyatt loved that he could fit into the post hole.

Also this week my office moved from our tiny hometown to the "big town" about 20 minutes farther away.
So I have spent my week unpacking boxes and getting somewhat organized...

And then of course there is this precious baby boy who requires some TLC regularly

My goofy husband and boys...yes I realize Waylon is looking like "Really Mom"

I hope all of you have a great weekend!

Until Next time....

Teach Me Tuesday

Last week was VBS week at our church.  
It was a great week...
a long, hard week but great!  
Here are some pics

I love that our older boys got into the opening skits each night

Craft time is always a big hit

We have some very talented artists and some dedicated decorators!

Not to mention some awesome Bible Story tellers who each year are willing to dress up as everything from Angels, 90 year old pregnant Sarah, or last year I believe there was also a vulture :)

even our tiny tots love VBS

Practicing for our closing program is always a must.

All those things are great but the best part has been the work I have seen in my oldest.
Wyatt has insisted on playing the music CD from VBS each time we have gotten into the car.
And not just the fun, catching tunes but also the ones that really have meat to them.

His current favorite one (and mine too) is "Use Me".  I love this song...
one he's either quiet while it plays or singing along with it...
but also the words are so powerful...

Use me Jesus use me.  Take this life of mine and use me.
Use me Jesus use me.  Keep me by your side and use me.

All I want is to be with you, to ever praise you in all I do.
Teach me Father to learn your ways, and walk with me each day.

Mould me make me, what you would have me be.
I only want to serve you faithfully. Help me Father to truly see

Teaching our children is extremely important...especially teaching them about Jesus.
Check out my Pinterest board Teaching My Children to find amazing ways to teach your children.  

Until Next time....
