ach week when I get ready to post this I find myself totally amazed that another week has passed so quickly. You would think that I would quit being surprised by this, but I don't. The days, they pass so quickly... oh to invest my time wisely as the Lord would have me to.
This year I am chronicling our lives by taking a photo-a-day (more or less!) and slipping those photos into an album, along with some journaling for each day. This has been a super-rewarding way for me to capture our lives in small glimpses. I am using Becky Higgins' Project Life album... not sure if they are available for sale right now, but if not, Becky is planning on having them for sale again in the near future. I began this on Jan.1, but you could certainly begin at any point in your year.
This photo is blurry and Caleb is partially obscured, but it is so typical of life here, now that I had to include it. (Plus I think it was the only photo I took that day!). Great Dane puppy Dude is now 6 mos old and still reminiscing about being a lap-puppy! He had to climb right up and make himself "at home" with Caleb on his chair. Dude's expression is so funny!
Jon was so proud of his domino creation.
I think I actually took this photo on Monday, but I didn't have a picture from Sunday, so there you go.... I love Tom's boots and captured this impromptu shoe portrait.
More spring on the farm with nine boys... an adorable ring neck snake! I always end up feeling a little sorry for the creatures that the boys discover. They aren't deliberately unkind to them, but still!
My view out of the kitchen window this morning as I had my quiet time with the Lord. What a lovely way to begin my day!
A day we have been awaiting for some time here.... oldest brother Nate's visit home on vacation from the Army!
Today was pea planting day here. The past few weeks have been wet (both from rain and large amounts of snow!) that we are a little late getting our peas in, but today we were able to get 'er done. Mmmmmm We can hardly wait for those fresh sweet snap peas! Even the little boys helped poke the seeds into the ground.

Rejoicing in His goodness, displayed in our everyday lives here,
