some updates

So some updates are due I suppose.

Pregnancy: going well. Nothing unusual. Starting to feel a little more awake now. :) Just finished the first trimester so it should pick up a little.

Moving? Ehh...not sure. Still looking of course. I must say that we have two possibilities and BOTH are in New Mexico. Quite a change, huh? Well, if that's where God wants us. But we are taking it slow.

Kids are healthy.

School is going well.

Animals are healthy and growing. Getting more chicks this week and next. If we do move far away, some friends are going to be benefiting from our farm. :) We won't be taking animals with us if we go too far.

So, that's it in a nutshell.

Until next time...

a question, a cry, a plea for help (and advice)

I wrote this on a couple of email digests I get and thought I'd try this avenue as well.

"I posted a question similar to this last year, but I thought I'd try again. We need a place to live. We would prefer to be out in the country, no close neighbors, with some land for our animals. We don't have good credit and can't possible get a loan to buy anything. We also don't want to go into debt that way. We would have to rent or rent to own. It needs to be a larger size house, since we have nine children and are due with number ten in November. That presents another dilemma; November is when we need to be out of this house. I would really like to move at least a month or two before if not sooner. If we move out of this area I hate to leave my midwife, but am confident God will supply another one. So we really don't care where we go as long as it's where God wants us. We will do everything we can to find a place and see if that's God's will. I hope I'm making sense. I'll be glad to answer any questions anyone might have. As far as my dh's job, he is self-employed and has been doing construction (trim carpentry) for the last several years. He wants to learn to weld and has a lot of equipment already. He just needs someone to teach him. If anyone has any ideas, knows of any places for rent in the country, or just any advice in general, I'd really appreciate it."

Until next time...

Happy "late" Mother's Day to the mothers

Happy "late" Mother's Day!!

Yes. It's been a while.

I think this is the longest I've gone without posting anything. So sorry.

Between pregnancy, homeschool, new animals, plants, and sunny days my life has been full.

I met a new friend and didn't post about it.

Our animals are growing and I haven't posted about it.

I had a wonderful Mother's Day and well...I'm posting about it now. :)

So how's life treating you?

Until next time...
