On The Farm: Sunday Funday Family Chores

On The Farm: Sunday Funday Family Chores

Chores are just better with family! On Sunday we spent most of the afternoon with family. It’s always fun to get the kids together and spend the day chatting and relaxing. Ren loves having his cousins over to play! Little Demi smiled the day away and showed off her new waving skills while Ren and […]

On The Farm: Twins!

On The Farm: Twins!

Day and night we’re checking cows! It’s calving season on our farm and the chores are piling up. Feed hay. Check cows. And now… bottle feed the twins! That’s right, WE HAD TWINS! I couldn’t believe it! We had lost a baby calf just days before and then out of nowhere God sent two! He always […]

On The Farm: Family Hay Day

On The Farm: Family Hay Day

Sunday may be my favorite day of the week! For our crazy busy little family it seems like Sunday is the only day when we can slow it all down and just be present together. And being cramped together in a tiny tractor cab helps too! Ren and I rode along with Dan to feed hay this past […]

Summertime Memories On The Farm

Summertime Memories On The Farm

The past couple months have been busy for farmers. After such a “rain delay” this spring, they had to hit the ground running when it would finally dry up! We were finally able to get our hay baled and put away just a few short weeks ago. Ren got to help! We love family ride-along […]

From The Garden: Bountiful Blessings

From The Garden: Bountiful Blessings

I talk about it all the time but I can’t help but think how much this “homestead” has been a blessing to us. We didn’t buy this land for the house, yard or garden but those things have surprisingly become the things that make this our home. It’s almost as if this place found us. […]

April Showers Bring May Flowers

April Showers Bring May Flowers

All the beautiful flowers popping up around the farmhouse have reminded me of some photos I took a few weeks back. We had some refreshing April showers and I captured these photos as one of the first thunderstorms of the season approached. There is nothing like the smell of a thunderstorm approaching! I enjoy it […]

On The Farm: Life & Death

On The Farm: Life & Death

Sunday evening our dog, Bear, was nowhere to be found. We called to him and finally decided he must be out hunting. I noticed on Monday morning, he still hadn’t come home and I immediately knew he wouldn’t be coming back. He was never away this long. Dan tried his best to convince me he […]

On The Farm: Miracle Baby

On The Farm: Miracle Baby

Dan and I were checking cows the other evening and noticed one of the cows had separated herself from the group. She looked like she was ready to calve so Dan planned check on her again later. He returned to the field a couple hours later, right before our bedtime, and still no sign of […]

Happy Fall Y’all!

Happy Fall Y’all!

Fall doesn’t technically start until Sunday but I just can’t wait any longer! It looks like fall. It smells like fall. Heck, I think it should just be FALL! Look at our corn! As you may know, I have been capturing photos of our corn throughout the summer. It still fascinates me how quickly it can […]

And On That Farm…

And On That Farm…

And on that farm, we had some corn… Remember that small sprout in the corn field? Here is a little reminder… Here is what it looked like a few weeks ago… And now, it is up to my elbow! I hope to continue the pictures throughout the summer and into harvest season. And on that farm, […]
