Not a whole lot new going on here lately.  We have started our school year already (so thankful to FINALLY get into all my homeschool boxes!!)  We have a 6th grader, 4th grader, 2nd grader and one heading into kindergarten.  They were excited to get new binders etc and look forward to most subjects.  Math is usually the dreaded subject that they are not too thrilled about.

They have been enjoying the summer outdoors.  They are all so dark and tanned.  It's actually been quite cool this summer so our pool days are few and far between lately but we manage to brave the cold water some evenings after supper.  Everyone has a bike now so we are enjoying the 1/2 mile long driveway (1 mile there and back)  It is great exercise!!  I've also been on the big riding lawnmower and even tried some weed whacking yesterday.  This is a heavy weed whacker ( a professional one designed for over 2 acres)  My arms are killing me today!  I think I'll leave that to hubby from now on and enjoying sitting in the riding mower :)

We are hoping to get a greenhouse built this fall.  Since we moved here later during the summer, we missed planting a garden this year.  We would like to get some things started though, so hoping to get a greenhouse built!

Nothing else really new that I can think of.  We are enjoying our new place so very much and are so thankful for God's provision and blessing.

  1. So glad you are enjoying your new place. I definitely can understand why. It is so beautiful!!!

    You will have your hands full with the coming school year. Hopefully, it will go really well.

    The greenhouse will be so nice to have! Nothing better than the fresh vegetables and it would be so good to get them through the winter months.

    Love you all
