random eye candy...

and a little bit of talk.

It's harvest time...
and that means BUSY.

I never understood what that meant until recently.
10pm dinners.
driving around in the field...
trying to find which combine your children are in.
buzz of the business band
packing LOTS of lunches
equipment all over the farm & field
empty shop... perfect for scootering
and so much more!

I took this picture on the last warm day...
it's 50
and now rainy.

hubby has been busy with contract work AND farming
...which means he has his phone
...and the Internet

but who cares about that!
Doesn't this photo melt your heart...

I've been BUSY with homeschool
...it's going {wonderfully}
better than I expected.

and about the {moving}

...we moved into the grandparents house
because it's hunting season
...and they rent the little house out to hunters.

We are {here} right now
...with no plans of coming home very soon.

there is no water, electric, gas at our home right now
...and it may not be our home for much longer.

God has a plan!
I trust God's plan!
He is bigger than ANY of our troubles!
...it's {still} hard...


on a {BRIGHTER} note
I was picked to be a part of an {awesome} babywearing triathlon
I am so excited I can hardly wait!

{I think mail on the farm is even more exciting than mail in the city} :)


and in honor of babywearing week {that I missed!}
I'll be talking about babywearing for the rest of the week
...and I even have an AWESOME giveaway!

peace out pretty people!

I understand how hard it is and I am sorry you guys have to go through that. You have a wonderful family and I hope you nothing but joy and happiness. Thanks for taking pictures that warm my heart each week.

  9. Everyday is a NEW day and yes it's gods plan. Though it might be hard, were all here and I'm in the same type boat as you. Keep your chin up and everything will work out. HUGS

  10. God bless you as you go through these struggles. Thinking of you with tender thoughts. Wanted to let you know just how stunning you look in the sunset picture. You are beautiful friend!

  11. Beautiful photos! Yes, God does have a plan. He must have something better in store for you. It's that waiting part that's tough... I'm praying you have good news soon!

  15. The pictures are beautiful! I love the one of your husband holding one of the girls--just melts my heart. You have a beautiful family. God has a plan for all of us... praying for you and your family. Have a wonderful day!

  16. I have been reading your blog for awhile now and I never realized why you moved in with your family (duh!?) until today. I am so sorry for the struggles you are going though but you are so blessed, which I'm sure I don't have to tell you, that you have family that can lend a hand.

    And your right, God has a plan and he will provide.

    Thinking about you and your family during this time.

  17. Sweet pictures!!
    Hang in there hun. It'll all work out. Sending prayers and hugs your way!

  18. Beautiful photos as always!

  19. I am praying that as you open yourself up to strangers on this site, you would receive no negative comments and only love and support. I can only imagine what some judgemental know-it-alls are thinking and pray they keep their thoughts to themselves. Also praying for you guys as you go through this time.

  20. Love all the photos.. great picture of ur hubby and the one of you.
    Cant imagine living without the things you listed.. i know thats got to be hard but im sure humbling 2.
    Our prayers are with you!

  21. I'm so excited that you'll be part of the triathlon! Can't wait to see how it goes.

    I understand the home thing...we're currently living with some friends from church as we work on finding a workable housing situation. God has been faithful (as always!) to bless us through this time, and I know He'll do the same for your family.

    Beautiful pics...I love the last one of you and the sunset.


  22. Truly lovely photographs! I keep you all in my thoughts and prayers. My parents are getting really homesick (as are the girls), so I will keep you posted on when we are heading back your direction. Take care!

  23. Um yes, that photo does melt the heart, actually. How absolutely precious!

    The waiting and trusting can be hard, but God has great things in store.

  24. Our home is soon to be not our home anymore. And a big move in store for us... but it is all apart of the big plan,we have eachother and we will be ok.Faith is believing...

  25. Oh my gosh - I LOVE the pic of Hub and BAbe!!! Is it Eliza? She looks so in love! AAAAAHHHH - the best - you need to enter that in a contest!

  26. Your two TU-TU's are adorable. Amazig picture!
