ack again with another installment of photos that will go into our Project Life album this year. Basically I am taking a photo-a-day and slipping it into an album. What an incredible slice of life I have saved that way already this year. So much that I most certainly would have forgotten entirely.
~ Some ominious looking clouds~ spring must be coming. We just ended up getting a little rain, nothing worse than that.
I usually try to avoid shopping on a Saturday, but I couldn't get out of it this week! So today I went to purchase animal food (note the bale of hay in the back of the minivan~ the pickem-up truck is on the fritz), to Sams, Aldi, the library and even the hardware store. Yea baby, power shopping! I took three of the little boys along to be my special helpers ~ and they were a great help. Of course they know that shopping is a priviledge... if they get the "gimmie hands" they won't get to go along next time. I sound tough, but they know I won't have disobedient helpers along, so then we have fun together!
I also saved this photo of the car... thought it was so funny how Josiah buckled in the large box of eggs from Sams. (I wish my laying hens would get busy this spring!) The buckling did work... no eggs were broken in my zeal to return home from shopping. I actually sized this photo so it would fit into one of the journaling card slots. So I have two Saturday photos this week.
Playing around with my camera before church. Mirrors are such fun. I took a bunch of pictures but this was the only halfway decent one. I'm still learning about taking good pictures indoors without using a flash or tripod.
Tom, and our two oldest boys at home left for a fabulous trip to Arizona! They were able to visit the Grand Canyon, do some hiking etc with my parents. (Abbie and I get to make a little trip out there in a few weeks~ yay!) I'm praying that we can take the whole family out there next year. I am planning on making a two-sided 8 1/2" x 11" photo spread of pictures from their trip to AZ to slip into a page protector and add between the main pages for this week. Love that I can do that with this album. I've really be inspired by Ali Edwards to use a variety of sizes of page protectors in one album.
The weather was relatively nice today, so I went out to play with the boys. Some moms have the problem of their children running away when the camera appears. Not me! "Mom! Take my picture! Mom! Look at me!" So funny.
OK, I'll admit it. I only included this shot because it makes me feel like Ree Drummond, the Pioneer Woman!
What do you think?
We raise Nubian Dairy goats... mostly so we have the good milk for our family. They seriously think that they are pets, not livestock. When I went out to take photos today they all had to check out the camera. There could be something good to eat there, ya know? Gotta' check that out.
OK, enough goat noses.

We are thick into the mud season here so when the boys get tired of
playing swimming in the mud, out comes the Playmobile and blocks.
Another favorite indoor activity this week: dominos. No, not the "real" game, the "see-how-many-you-can-line-up-before-your-little-brother-knocks-them-down" kind of dominos! Aaah such fun! Just joking (mostly!)~ actually the boys really do have fun together most of the time!
The days pass so quickly, don't they?
So teach us to number our days, That we may present to You a heart of wisdom.
