Carinna went up to Granddad and Granny’s for 3 1/2 weeks to help them start getting ready to move down here. God has really shown His hand of blessing as they prepare to sell out and move down here by us. About 3 weeks after they decided to move, they had a buyer for their house and 40 acres. They had looked at and decided to buy a house that wasn’t originally for sale down by us… and the owner decided to let them buy it (come the middle of May), and it is adjoined to our yard!
Sunday morning, February 2, twenty-seven aunts, uncles, cousins, etc. showed up at Granddad and Granny’s church to honor their marriage! We took up a whole section of the church. =)
Granny teaches a Sunday school class, her lessons are inspiring and full of the truth from God’s Word, we enjoy getting to sit in when we are there!
Lots of competitive and hilarious games. =D
very loud old memories of playing Pit in the patio! It was just as loud as it used to be when we were younger…if not louder!
42- probably the “most played” game at Granddad and Granny’s house!
This calf is a couple of days old-and SO cute!
I’ve had lots of wonderful memories, learning experiences, and laughs. And I look forward to making new ones when they are down here by us… but I’m just going to warn you, the next part of this post is a bit sappy, long, and full pictures.. sorry, I got to reminiscing…I’ve learned so much here on this farm.
I’ve got to do things here that I would never have the chance to do anywhere else….like vaccinate and pull calves, shoot skunks and pregnancy check cows.
There’s not a feeling quite like holding a slippery, wet, brand-new, calf, and then watch it wobble and stumble around the pasture the next day- the poor things are so awkward.
and baling, loading, stacking,and hauling hay (a shower has never felt so good!)
Anyways.. I’m going to miss this place a lot. But I’m excited to see what God has planned for this new season of our lives.
Speaking of new seasons.. the people building the addition for grandpa just started working this week! Our laundry room/pantry and back porch is being torn out and going to be rebuilt with the addition. It’s fun to finally start seeing some progress!
Before Demolition begins!!!
And speaking of tearing out and re-doing..last August dad was planning to re-do one of our bathrooms during a 2 week break from work. Well…things got
pretty really complicated and all that got done was tearing out and re-doing foundation under the bathroom floor. But thanks to Dustin and Benj., we now have a very new, lovely-and most important-working bathroom. It only needs a few finishing touches!
Here are some before and after’s.
May Jesus be your fulfillment this week!
