Embrace new beginnings

Okay all it’s been a hot minute since I have been on here! So much has been happening here since COVID hit back in March.

Let me fill you all in…..

First of all, you would think I would have more time on my hands with being at home ALL THE TIME…definitely not true. With COVID hitting back in March I was so preoccupied with getting stuff done around here and making sure my kids were emotionally stable all the time and getting their school work done. I kind of put all of my stuff to the side. Once I did come up for air and after really pondering a few things I decided to start working on my PhD in Psychology. I believe the conversation with myself went something like this…..” My kids are growing up and will be leaving soon, what am I going to do?”

Now with that in mind (and really this is something I’ve actually thought about doing for a few years now) I began researching it and just dived right in. I am currently on my second course and beginning to learn how to navigate the waters with my school, the school for the girls, the farm life, and this! Yes, I am hoping to start penciling in the time to continue doing this blog and possibly trying to grow it even more.

With all of that said, we have all been healthy. Here where we live in Kansas our town was hit really hard. I believe this was because we have several meatpacking plants here and when one employee got sick so did several others! It was hard to manage. Here in the last few months, our numbers have steadily declined with active cases.

Grace will be starting school (10th grade) up here in about a week and a half and Faith will start her last year (8th grade) of homeschool. It will definitely be an odd year. Our public school is starting a bit later than planned, but the kids have been doing activities, so I am praying that everyone will stay healthy and safe for the school year.

Now for the introduction to the new family member to our small farm…..I should probably say new animal member!  Y’all meet LouLou! Her story is amazing on how she came to us. That will be another post soon and I will totally keep you up to date on how she is doing.

She is the only pig we have, although my husband raised and showed pigs when he was growing up, I don’t want to say we know what we are doing, but we kind of do!!

Se be looking for The Adventures of LouLou on the Farm…we absolutely love this little thing.

Also, I do have some new recipes and other things to try in the months to come. That’s our update!

Talk soon!!!
