i’ve been missing this place. but sometimes life gets so hectic that finding the time to sit here and write a formal post is next to impossible. but today i have just a minute to share a few wonderful things…
baby moses being one of them. this was taken by my daughter this morning. yesterday we were surprised with 5 new babies. which was very lovely since we lost a puppy on friday. it seems that we have terrible luck with animals, but the cycle of animal life continues with these new little kittens.
a certain little curly haired boy is being chastised by mama kitty as we speak because he keeps taking them out of their box. he finds it so interesting that she will come and get whichever baby he happens to have.
as for names-so far only baby moses and josephine march have names. the other three are undecided, but will come with time i am sure. usually we see something in their personality and it turns into a name.
we are still plugging away at planting our seeds. we have our work cut out for us though as there seems to be no end to the packets!
the california unit we are working on is moving along nicely. it is so strange to actually be studying a place in history that we are familiar with. we have been in ancient times for years-doing story of the world-and bible history-but the missions have been on my mind for quite some time. this summer we will try to visit as many as we can and by september we will be ready to start the american revolution.
this month is my favorite. not just because it is my birthday month. my baby will turn 5 on the 5th this year. it is also poetry month and national gardening month. i am looking forward to reading a little bit of longfellow today. i got a hair cut with layers and some highlights-thanks to my extremely talented sister-in-law-the only hairdresser who will actually come to my house and put up with kids running in and out, stepping in piles of my hair, etc. i have 4 sil’s and they are always after me about my hair.they are all so fashionable and hip.and i, well, i worry about my seedlings and making cream cheese and crab wontons, wandering around the house with rubber boots on, pants bloodied from being a midwife to my laboring cat-wondering if i should have the kids do a notebook page on animal childbirth. i haven’t had a decent haircut in 2 yrs. 4mos. and so it was time. and the highlights have nothing to do with my turning 33.
well, i am off to find my toothbrush. these april fools have been pulling pranks on me all morning. but with a light-hearted laugh i threaten to use one of theirs.“oh mom, that is so gross…..” they say. but hey, i can be an april fool too, can’t i?
