Plus, there's still construction going on here, which is highly distracting. It is exciting to see our patio coming together. I didn't know it would take so long to do, but we are almost there.
The concrete is getting poured today....i think
The boys participated in Hempfield School district's regional cross country run (that's a mouthful). The top 5 finishers in each grade move on to the Championship at Garden Spot next month. Everyone but Brad qualified. He took it pretty well. I wasn't sure what to expect, it was a well laid out course at our local middle school. Clay did 1/4 mile, the others 1/2 mile.
I decided one of my favorite things to do is watch Clay run! Apparently the other boys felt the same way.
Ben got 5th
Adam got 2nd
This week starts my apple project. We have a number of trees, at least 3 different kinds. All but one were on the property when we moved here. We haven't sprayed or trimmed them once and they produce like crazy. I'm making applesauce this afternoon.
The goats are downright lucky they are cute because they are doing a number on my roses
I'll end with a link from my favorite homestead blogger. She has almost the same animals we do and does a lot of the work herself, and 4 children like me so i can always identify with her words.
