Our Family Daybook
I'm waiting just a bit longer to put the corn and beans in the ground.
We're doing some brooder planning for the chicks. It wouldn't be a big deal if we were only getting a couple of chicks...but we've got 25 coming and that takes a bit more space!
We took most of yesterday to go on a hike to Crowders Mountain...it was wonderful. I will post more on that later. Lets just say we got in over our heads and ended up taking a way longer hike than the littles were prepared for. What I thought was just going to be a short hike with the kids turned out to be an amazing opportunity for us to pull together as a family and for me to really see my older boys shine in their roles as growing men and protectors of their younger siblings...it was amazing and God really blessed me with that time with them. We ALL learned a lot and it didn't involve a single textbook.
We've also been thinking about what our boys might want to do when they're adults...lots of enjoyable conversations with them. And of course our adoption hopes are always in the back of my mind.
For a God that never gives up on me...even when I've gotten a bit off track and need to draw closer to Him.
