Where Was I?

Construction has been progressing!

This is pretty close to what the house looks like this morning.  We should have some men come put on our new roof today!  Dad & I will then get after some of the siding and installing doors, windows, and a chimney so we can finish siding.

So why haven’t I posted in over a month?  I built a mudroom on the opposite side of the house and the mudroom enclosed the satellite dish that connects us to the internet.  So I called to have the dish moved, and the technicians were booked out for more than 3 weeks.

In other news, my babies continue to grow.  Abigail is quickly approaching her second birthday and pretty much refuses to talk because she can communicate by sign language.  Joshua is 3-½-months old and weighs 19 pounds!

We also had our first calf born on our farm:  a bull calf I’ve named Norman because he gave us quite a scare at first — we weren’t entirely sure he would make it through.

But the really exciting news is that I got a job!  Or rather, God has provided for his children.  I will detail this more in a future post and I will testify to the goodness and providence of Jesus!

Two New Members of the Family

Yesterday the newest members of our family arrived!

As of now, they are unnamed, but we have a two-year-old cow and her first calf, a little bull calf.  They arrived here on May 6, the calf having just been born on May 4.  What a blessing we feel.  Please pray that we won’t be frustrated by the new experiences we will be facing.
