( Late Winter pictures of 2016)

Here are some pictures of our life from late winter of this year. I've had a  lot of computer problems this year, so am trying to just now, get somewhat caught up on my blog.

 This was from a coloring book I got from Melissa and  Doug for her for Christmas
and she has loved it!

January Happenings and Pictures

We came back from our Christmas Break in Michigan around the first week of January, and Eric got back to teaching at Mt. Carmel School. The children and I also got back to Homeschooling, after a fairly lengthy break. I was very excited to see that Samuel is now making more progress with learning to read! We were very happy to be able to see our friends Jake and Naomi Litchfield and Andrew and Morgan Street and their families in January too. What a blessing for me to be able to visit with my sweet friends Morgan and Naomi! In January, we got a huge snowstorm with about 16-20 inches of snow. It was so pretty, and Eric had a great time playing in it with our 4-wheeler. He even rigged up a snow plow to push snow with his 4-wheeler with! I love his inventiveness! Before we got the huge snow, we had a smaller amount of snow, and he pulled the children behind the 4-wheeler on their sleds. One day I went out and rode too, but then the rope broke! I did do some sledding though, but didn't have proper snow boots, and kept falling all over the place! Also, Naomi had her 3rd birthday! We had a princess party for her with the Englehardts and some of the college students! It was on one of the biggest snow days too! Jesus really helped me make her a pretty cake, and she loved it! So those were the main happenings of January. It was a nice first month of the year!

We had LOTS of snow!

{ What We Wore Wednesday! }

Here is some outfits we have worn this summer!


{ Our trip to Oklahoma! }

The last part of June and first week of July, we spent in Oklahoma visiting my parents who are sweet potato farmers there. We had never been there in the summer, so thought it would be nice to do so. My Mama cooked us lots of yummy food and yummy desserts. We had our share of fresh veggies, including just-getting-ready sweet corn! We played in the lake close to where they live, which was really nice! We got to visit their church, and had a good time visiting with Christian brothers and sisters from their church. We walked way to the back of their farm,  and I got my first big tractor ride! I also got to go to the Farmers' market with my Mama to sell veggies, did some Goodwill shopping, and ate at a cute cafe with her. On our way home, it was the Fourth of July, so we stopped and bought fireworks, and blew them off on a country road in Missouri!

Those geraniums are so pretty!
