Day to Day Adventures

Working on the old home place

Kim1 Comment

Some weeks are just difficult.  We had one of those last week.

Difficult meetings.

Our  suburban started making a funny chicken noise.  An expensive noise.

We are dealing with a 2 car situation for 3 drivers.

Michael’s schedule wasn’t lining up with our weekend trip out of town.

I had to change my attitude.

We work with wonderful people who love our children.

We OWN 3 vehicles.  No debt.  We have an emergency fund for just this situation.

Michael was in Joplin giving of his time & energy to those who right now have NOTHING.

It helped to spend time with my mother-in-law & father-in-law.  They are so giving, loving & fun to spend time with.

We traveled up to the farm where Suzanne grew up & spent the weekend there.

So here are the highlights of our trip.

First we all worked hard at building a new fence.

Elizabeth is an expert post hole digger.



After the little people & grandma & I went inside  the guys kept working & got more done.  There was some definite napping going on after lunch.  Along with soda drinking, snacking & games!


Since we were hot--there had to be a water gun/balloon fight!



And Root Beer floats!  Yum!


This was a trip I wasn’t so excited about.  I am feeling behind, overwhelmed & in need of some quiet work time.  It is hard to get away & relax when you feel that way.  I am so thankful that I went.  My husband & kids had a blast.  It was fun to see them let loose & enjoy being together.  I wouldn’t have missed it for anything.
