Spring on the Farm Watched Our Mare Foal

Friday was quite the exciting day on the farm. I watched our mare foal. She had a little stud colt.  His name is Snickers, and he is super cute, a little sweet with some crunchiness around the edges. As in, if you can get your hands on him, he settles right down, but catching him, […]

Weekend Fun on the Farm Thanks to Schedule Changes

Weekends on the farm are never boring.  In fact many times we tend to squeeze in more than we could ever accomplish.  However, I have spent a little time in prayer about our schedule.  We never get five full book work days done in a week.  We always seem to need to have a day […]

Wheat Harvest 2012, from the inside out…

We started wheat harvest yesterday.  This is the earliest wheat harvest on record.  Normally we don’t cut until the second to third week of June.  I remember as a kid spending many Independence Days jealous of non-farm kiddoes who got to picnic, and party, while I was stuck in the field.  It has been awhile […]

Super Moon May 5

Saturday evening we headed out to look at the "Super Moon". It was pretty, and quite bright, even with the clouds here.  God’s Creation is amazing isn’t it?

Summer Fun doesn’t have to cost a fortune…

Every day my children have TWO WHOLE hours of […]

Keeping up with Household Duties while Homeschooling

Honestly, I am not sure that you really can.  You just have to hand it to God, and pray anyone that happens to stop by understands that not only is your home a home, but is also a school. Our family doesn’t really have a schedule, but we run on routines. Routines allow us to […]

Life Skills in the Homeschool

We are big on life skills.  In fact at times, I think my children learn a lot more out of the mores then in the books. Rarely can life skills be learned in a book, character lessons, yes, but actually being able to carry those out, no. In our family, we incorporate life skills in […]
