Stormy Kromers…

That’s what Mark surprised us with after church last Sunday.  The kids got to pick out whatever color would fit them…

On Sunday we let the sheep out on pasture, while that is always fun to watch this was a bit more cute!

Children…

We took some pictures in the hay loft today of the kids with one of the lambs.  Trying to get 7 kids to look the same direction all at the same time is quite an undertaking to say the least! lol!  This was the best one this try…

Look over here...over here...over here?

One of my most favorite picture frames says the following…
Children are special. They grow and change. Children question everything. Children laugh, frown, grin, pout, and smile. Children give meaning to silly things, small things, big things. They give meaning to us. They teach us to be open again, to appreciate everything, and take nothing for granted. Children teach us what’s important because sometimes we forget. They show us what it means to be young at heart. Children are our future. Children are life.

Happy Easter…

Yesterday the kids and their cousins dyed eggs with Grammy Sheila and Uncle Beau, to find tomorrow at Grammy’s house after church.  They all had so much fun and ended up with funky colored fingers and are very excited for tomorrow.  Afterwards we went to an excellent Good Friday service, where it reminded us of Christ’s sacrifice for us which helped steer us back on track  to the reason of the real Easter celebration.  After the service we were able to pick up Luke and Orion (the cousins)  and had a slumber party.  We had a house-full of little boys!  Garrett is 7, Luke is 7, Orion is almost 6, Hayden is 5,  Teigen is almost 3, and Zayne is almost 1!  Talk about a lot of activity.  They had fun this morning showing their cousins how to feed the chickens, collecting eggs and taking care of the baby ducks.
