Hey y’all, Happy Monday…
Today I am so excited to get back to my regular scheduled program!!!
We have just come off of having 5 snow days in a row, I repeat 5 snow days! If I add it all up the kids were actually at home for 9 days in a row and let me tell you about cabin fever…it is a thing. It’s one thing to be home for that many days during warmer weather where we could go outside and play but, when the majority of the temps were under 20…yah, you are inside!
To be honest I think we made the most of it with what we were aloud to do, but it was cruel unusual punishment and I can’t imagine living like that for months on end.
A few of the things the kids did to keep their hands busy were playdoh, kinetic sand, video games, watching movies, drive the r.c. car around the house, coloring, drawing etc…
Thankfully Thursday the temperature broke and we went grocery shopping, Friday we went for a nature walk ( pictured below) and the kids were able to play outside over the weekend.
Bryce snapped this picture of me.
When you are in the bottom pasture and you sit by the pond, the real world seems so far away…
Being in nature is my kind of church, that is where I feel recharged and renewed.
Earlier in the week we had so much snow on the ground the kids enjoyed a few days of “pool sledding”and it was fun to watch and laugh!
The kids loved it!
By Saturday all the snow was gone and it warmed up to a balmy 50.
Sunday Jer and Bryce pulled the blue tractor out of the shop and gave it a bath.
We also swept and sprayed the milk barn out and let it get some warmer fresh air flowing thru.
Otherwise it has been closed up like a steel trap with the automatic propane heater on to keep the pipes from freezing!
Can you believe, I’ve kept up with the weekly vlogging!?!
Week 3 went up today and I’m getting myself into a groove now with filming & editing. It’s a little over 20 minutes but, I had so much footage because of all the snow play!
I hope you enjoy,
