This and That :)

It is raining here today and school seems to be flying by.  Everyone has finished up their math and we will do spelling right before we have lunch at 11.

Yesterday was in the upper 60s and so nice. We worked outdoors most of the day cleaning out the coop, cleaning up the yard, and trimming goat hooves.

We celebrated two more birthdays this month. Madison turned 14 and McKenzie 13! I am going to say it again-they grow up way too fast!

Madison added a black lionhead to her rabbit collection to make 3. She is really enjoying them and taking excellent care of them.

We are picking out all the seeds for the plants we want to grow this year and adding them to our wishlist here. We are going to try growing all heirloom seeds.

Not much else is going on. Here are some pictures from our last week or so.

Happy 13th Birthday!

  1. Great pics Vicki. Happy to hear from you. Cute little critters you have. (I mean the animals not the kiddies) hehe! Your kiddies are cute too. Hey where did all your snow go? I wish that would happen here.
    But I guess I can’t have it all.:)

  2. Hi Vicki!
    You have such a sweet family. Yay for homeschool families!
    It’s been eight years since we kept dairy goats, but I well remember trimming goat hooves. We always used clippers designed for that purpose, but I once saw a demo of goat hooves being trimmed by someone using a pocket knife. The knife was super sharp, and the hoof was trimmed in one careful swipe of the blade. It looked easy, but I was never brave enough to try that.

  3. Your pictures are so good. Madison did a great job on the pillow. She certainly has a talent for sewing. I went to the seed site and requested a catalog. Do you already have one? We need to look at seed catalogs together. God bless.
