April happenings...

A good friend of our family just had a new baby!

Rebecca and Clara

"This one won't rob the feeder any more!"

Readers are leaders.... in napping :)

We are trying a no-till garden method this year!
It's called Back to Eden, and involves various composting
and raised-bed methods.

We got a half-ton of paper for the base of the garden

Taking a break :)

Here is the beginning of the newspaper/manure/woodchip layering

Everyone pitched in and helped!

Caleb has been wanting to make a playhouse/hunting blind for a while.

We salvaged a bunch of wood from a disassembled barn down the road,
and Caleb is working on making his project become a reality!

Work in progress...

All that's left is the shingles!

"For, lo, the winter is past, the rain is over and gone;
The flowers appear on the earth; the time of the singing of birds is come,
and the voice of the turtle is heard in our land;"

Song of Solomon 2:11-12

"The Management" strikes again :)

Here's what was in all the kids' inboxes this morning:

Hello all -
Wildblue is now counting usage. We used 3.4 GB in one day. This is not good. 
Please do not overdo the downloading or uploading.
Thank you,
The Management
One of those "Magic Management Moments!"

Thought you'd get a kick out of it!

Splitting Hairs? (how about logs?!)

Here is a picture Jon took while the guys were working on wood last week:

Click to enlarge - can you find the truck, the house, and Dad?

This particular area of woods had a "backlog" of fallen trees - there probably is around 5 full cords of wood cut and on the ground in the above picture... Now to get it out and stacked!!

"I wish I was splitting hairs about now!!!"

“For there is hope for a tree, if it be cut down, that it will sprout again, 
and that its shoots will not cease."
Job 14:7
