Those lazy days of summer! Michael refurbished this awesome swing that we almost burned when we first saw it laying in pieces in the shed. Turns out it was made of redwood. I absolutely love doing my prayer time on this swing in the mornings before the kids get up. So peaceful. Josiah planted a sunflower shade around the back of it and they are now about two feet high (not pictured).
We have done so much re-seeding around here and we have lots more to go. We've all worked very hard to get grass growing over all the places we've disturbed.
Hailey is enjoying her kitty, Cuddles. He's been such a sweet addition to the family.
He's starting to become and indoor/outdoor cat. Getting spoiled rotten already as you can tell by this pic. He really likes the window seat. I do a lot more vacuuming these days!
After weeks of hard work, Michael finally has power to his shop! We had to dig over 200 ft, to get from the power box to the shop. Michael used a trencher. It was a lot of work to cover it all back up and seed. Of course it had to run right through the middle of our yard. So yard still looks bad as it is trying to recover from being disturbed.
Celtic Society of Eastern Oregon and La Grande Celtic Festival this year, too. And Josiah will be selling soap at our clan tent (Clan Lamont).
Josiah made this sign as one of his writing assignments. I think this would be a good start-up business for this entrepreneurial-minded kid. Anything he makes on the soap (after expenses and tithes) gets re-invested into another business (4-H animals, honey-bees, etc). Hoping this will teach him some real life skills.
Last but not least, here is an engagement pic of Michael and I nineteen years ago. We celebrated our anniversary in June. Thought you might get a kick out of this old photo.
Hope you are all having an awesome summer! I hope to have time to visit your blogs soon, that is in-between weeding, watering, harvesting, homeschooling and most importantly PLAYING.
