Spring is here. Everything is green and growing. Living.
Our first batch of chicks are now teenagers and out in the coop full time waiting to be completely free range once they get a bit bigger. The second, younger batch just graduated from their spot in my laundry room, to the garage.
So much life has happened.. I’m not even sure if I can recap all that has gone on. J Call it Mommy brain if you will.
The biggest thing has been our decision to stay in Texas. It was a huge decision and I’m not ready to go into it except we are excited to see what God has in store. I’ll just leave it there for now.
I’m going to try to back track for bit and cover some big things that happened during my blogging break…
My sweet friend Bethany flew in for a few days which was the Lord’s perfect timing. We hadn’t seen one another for over two years and it was way over due! She came right on the tail of us deciding to stay in Texas and she spoke such life into my heart.
Something I will always love and treasure about our friendship is no matter how long we are apart, we pick back up right where we left off! Back to sitting on the floor in the kitchen, late night talks and all the laughs! Oh I wish I could go back and live the visit all over again!
It ended too soon with Lariat coming down with Bronchiolitis and having to be hospitalized. I was with him and Beth rose to the occasion and took over the home front and kids so Sebron could keep working since his boss was out of town. I know that was God’s timing too, but I hate it disrupted our time together.
She blessed us with family pictures before she left. Bethany is an amazing photographer and her work is truly beautiful!
Laughter turned 3 and Jancsi turned 5. I can hardly believe it. They were both so excited about their birthdays this year. Especially Jancsi, he just gets it and was so super excited! I’d promised them they could have parties this year and we decided to do a joint one for both of them since their special days are only about two weeks apart.
The theme was an easy one: Super Heros! We are huge Superman fans in this house and Laughter had a Superman dress and cape she’d gotten from a friend which she was dying to wear… so it was decided!
One Saturday afternoon we had some friends over, decorated super hero capes, navigated through laser fields, destroyed a piñata and ate way too many cupcakes!
The whole party idea was a bit lost on Lulu and after opening her first gift (which was a bucket and shovel) she ran outside to dig and I couldn’t for the life of me get her to come in to open the rest. J Jancsi still talks about the day with great pride so I’ll take it the party was a success!
We got back into the sheep business! We knew we wanted to do Dorpers again and after calling one of the men we’d actually sold some ewes to, we ended up buying 8 registered ewes from him to start our herd again. They are funny little things, all about 7 months old. They are a lot more tame then our last group and will come right up to you. We hope to breed them this Fall.
We’ve been readjusting our vision since deciding to stay, and working on plans to begin leasing cows in the new year. We are excited and looking forward to see what’s next!
