i ended up taking the last couple weeks off. and around. doing summertime things like one should. the boys and i have been having a blast being busy ... and doing nothing.
my older 2 boys get up every morning and feed the goats and chickens before breakfast. such a fantastic routine to be out in fresh air, greet their animal friends and get their chores crossed off the list first thing. and? they never complain.
we've had beautiful warm days filled with berry picking, tinkering in the garden and lots of reading. a quick trip to the beach and weekly $1 movies at the local theatre. making comic books, gathering eggs, scheming ways to keep the deere away and riding the john deer around our property... and ... maybe sneaking in some video games too.
