What a month! Yes, I'm so far behind blogging. Hope I can catch up soon. I want my kids to have a record of all the fun stuff they did and accomplished as they grew up, so I continue on, even if I'm waaaayyyy behind. Michael was gone to Europe on a military mission for three weeks in April. The day he left a lot of interesting things happened on the homestead. The rooster, Blondie, started aggressively attacking us as we entered his domain, so I asked Josiah if he would take care of him for me. He got the job done quickly with his bow. Never wanting to waste food, I asked Josiah if he would butcher it for us.
It took two days, but they finally got the swarm in the hive.
Rina loves to watch the hens out in their chicken yard. And I love to watch her!
Homeschooling in the hammock is so much fun! Love these sunny days.
We got to go on a homeschool field trip out to a ranch/feedlot and walked a bit of the Oregon Trail.
Then we went to an OSU test plot where the kids got to dig around in the soil. My soil scientist's heart just loves to watch this! Can you tell which kids are mine, LOL? Yep, they are easy to spot in a crowd ;)
Our little homestead blessing. We love this girl!
We enjoyed eating the Seder meal with our friends. The Passover is FOR KIDS. God wanted the people to always be teaching the next generation what He had done for the Hebrew people by setting them free from slavery in Egypt. As Christians, we can clearly see the correlation between the Passover Lamb and Christ who was sacrificed for our sins so that we can have eternal life. What a joy to be able to celebrate this event with New Testament eyes!
