Sicky girl and laundry.

Poor Mae has a nasty cold. I swear she inherited my sinus tract, which is horrible. She slept all night but was up early.  We played a while and then took a nice steamy bath to try to help her breathe. First cold of the season but every cold this poor kiddo gets is so stressful. Today we bought a little paint-it-yourself bird feeder on sale at Tractor Supply! I realize how much of a messy nightmare this will be, but keeping a sick kiddo busy and happy can be hard, so it's worth the mess.    We are so...

Life is hard.

Life is hard.

Being a farm is hard. Being a parent is hard. Being married is hard. For us as of late, all of the above is true. Bit of a rough weekend of working on bettering our family.  Going through trials and hurt has and will continue to make us stronger, and help us to come closer to God. This week will be one of healing and growing together, as partners, parents, and as a farm. We had two Farmer's Markets this weekend! A whole lot of work, and a whole lot of time put into both of them. Our garden will start...

Strokes.

So I want to take this opportunity to talk a little bit about a cause that is very close to us.  Pediatric Stroke Awareness.  Many of you are aware that Mae suffered a stroke at birth which left her with a brain injury.  This brain injury has resulted in a lifetime of hurdles that our little girl will be forced to endure.  There is no doubt in my mind that she won't be fine.  In the 2.5 years or so that I have come to know her I can truly say that she is so smart, so special, and so...

Sleep, we got it!

Thankfully, even though Mae ended up in the bed at 1, she slept extremely well until almost 7. Thank goodness because between her early morning antics and a super busy day at the vet I was beyond exhausted. Every time we thought we had caught up, another emergency walked in. It's days like that I'm grateful I work with an incredible team of doctors, techs and receptionists. Mae watched Polly Pocket while I got the animals done, tonight will be the night that the newly rescued chickens sleep in the big coop with the rest of the girls. It's always...

Sleep, who needs it.

Sleep, who needs it.

So we were woken up at about 1:30am this morning by the cutest, smartest, most stubborn little 2.5 year old there is. Miss Mae decided it was going to be time to wake up at 1:30am.  She was so excited to go downstairs and practice her new matching flash cards.  We tried a few times to get her to stay asleep but were quite unsuccessful.  Needless to say we are running on fumes and caffeine today so this blog is going to be short. We are looking to schedule to fall/winter markets to sell at this year.  So farm we...
