Dan unexpectedly took off a few days this week to try to get a bunch of stuff off our "To Do" list as well as go on a family History Field trip for our Civil War studies. I'll post more about that later.
Dan, aka Mr. Homesteader, went and got himself a great used trailer so now he can cart all the wood, farm supplies, landscaping stuff, aquaponics setup supplies and even our trash to the dump! We all went and got some lumber for the long-awaiting "older boy tree fort" that has been long coming for the big boys in our family :) There are plans in the works for building to start tomorrow!
We have some rasberry bushes that are sitting in my entryway begging to be planted :)
I went to our local homestudy agency office to drop off our big payment for our homestudy, backround check stuff and some more paperwork...they are SO NICE there...it is such a blessing to have somebody in person that is kind and helpful. It was nice to be able to get something else done towards our adoption.
I wrote this post last night and got side-tracked on posting it...Today is actually Ash Wednesday so we need to get to Church this morning. Hopefully I'll get back here and post a little about our family plans for Lent. We are definitely keeping it simple this year and focusing on a real conversion of heart. Stay tuned!
