Farm Day!

DSCF6249This is Farmer Mary! Yesterday we had a BLAST out at her farm. We got to feed goats, ride a miniature horse, hug a spitting lama, and take a walk through the property. It was a great experience. Miss Rayne makes friends faster than anyone I know, so Mary was begging to keep her by the end of the day.

This is Obediah. Scarlet would feed the goats and laugh and say, “That tickles goat!”


We will definitely be visiting Farmer Mary again soon!


Swim Time & Sad News

This weekend was very relaxing. Scarlet had her first trip to the pool. We can tell already she will be a little fish! She LOOOVED it! She didn’t want to leave.

There is no easy way to say this on a blog. About two weeks ago we miscarried the baby. It was a long process. Joseph and I are both doing very well. We are very sad to lose this baby but we do realize that sometimes it is the bodies natural reaction to an unhealthy pregnancy. Many women have them and never knew they were pregnant. Knowing that has made this a little bit easier. Still, we were very excited about this new baby. We know that all things work together for the good of those that love God and are called according to His purpose. Therefore, we realize that we need to keep our eyes focused on the things God has asked us to do and leave the rest to Him. Please be praying for us. We are still trying to get back to our normal rhythm. We are both having strange reactions to all of the stuff going on. Pray for peace and wisdom that we will know how to deal with every situation that comes our way.

I believe that God puts beauty in everything. I believe that even when we cannot see, hear, or feel God Himself that we can always feel the evidence of Him. That evidence, His beauty, is you. I am so thankful to have people in my life you care. People who stop their lives to bring me comfort. If it was bringing a meal, showing up at the hospital and holding my pinkie, or even taking the time just to sit beside me and knit… thank you to all of you who had a part in supporting Joseph and I. You are the beauty of God on this earth. We are quickly becoming the only beauty left on this earth. But that is another sermon for another day….

Hope you all had a good weekend. This week holds trips to the pool, starting the process of hording food, knitting, and clothes for winter (yes, I am a lot like a bear… I hibernate), art projects, and getting back into the groove. Fun! Hope your week is filled with fun!
