WORDS TO LIVE BY
The Lord will watch over your coming and going both now and forever more.
People see God every day, they just don't recognize Him. ~ Pearl Bailey
YARD AND GARDEN
The last week or so has been crazy busy and this is part of the reason why. I canned 49 quarts of green beans last week. The kids helped pick and clean and put them in jars.
We also pulled and cleaned another bucket of turnips and stored them in the basement.
And today Austin and I cut three buckets full of kale before I started getting sick from the heat and had to go in. I got one bucket of it washed and blanched and put in the freezer and plan to do the other two buckets full tomorow.
WORKING, LEARNING, AND PLAYING TOGETHER
OUT AND ABOUT
We've been out and about quite a bit this past week. Doug worked several evenings on moving some things for my dad and one of those evenings the whole family helped.
Friday evening we had a birthday party for my cousin and then went up on the mountain.
Saturday we went to the Antique Mall and then took the kids for ice cream.
Sunday after church and a late lunch we went to McCormick's Farm for the afternoon/evening. It was so beautiful and peaceful there and the kids loved playing.
