Very Proud of Our Daughter

Last year in 7th grade our daughter Doodle (nickname) did great on her Iowa testing, scoring some in college levels.  She was on the honor roll all year long.

This year she knocks it out of the park!!  She just completed eight grade while staying on the honor roll all year long. (keeping straight A's)  We just received her Iowa Testing scores back.

She has college levels in all her subjects and 10, 12 grade and college level in Math.  We are so very proud of her!!



  She has already requested to take Orchestra as her elective this fall, I believe she can do it!

Hugs from the farmhouse.

Summer Time Craft Days

An ocean blue plastic table cloth covers my farmhouse table.  
Paints, bushes, wood birdhouse, and wooden cars are place around the table.   
Creative little minds are busy as they carefully choose the right colors for their little wood craft.

Paint splatters here and there no one seems to notice.  
Each one talks about their plans how they will paint their work of art.   
Such ideas chatter around the table, soon the giggles and silliness follows not far behind.   
Let's Create!

Soon each one finds that finishing point of their very own creation.


Summer time crafts will be one of our past times this summer.  
With three of our grand children joining us, 
we are looking forward to summer time craft days.  
I hope you will come back to see what the kids do next week.


 My little photo bomber! This is my grandson who is 3, 
he is learning the art of photo bombing, to cute.


Create! Simply find the time to create and enjoy your summer days.
Spending time with our children, makes the biggest difference in their hearts towards
their family, and towards God.

Hugs from the farmhouse.

Enjoying the Front Porch





Happy Memorial Day or evening I should say.  We had a lovely day at home enjoying our front porch, taking in the beautiful skies and making homemade ice cream.    What better way to enjoy a four day weekend then at home.

Today, we invited over my sister from WA who is in for a visit, and my mom for a cookout here at the farmhouse.  Later we drove out to our daughters house to see their new boar goats.  Afterwards we came back home to make some homemade ice cream.  What a wonderful restful weekend we had just by staying home.

I hope each of you had a very blessed Memorial Day weekend.
