We Wish You Were Home…

Some of you reading this blog may be interested in our adoption plans.

We have a little 2-year old girl in Haiti in an orphanage we are in the process of adopting.  We actually started with our homestudy 18 months ago and our paper work has been in Haiti a year.

We were hoping to have our little girl home from Haiti for Christmas but we are presently not far enough along in the process and have given up on that idea.

Every day we hope to hear news that we’ve moved on to the next step.  Waiting is not fun…but we were warned that it could take 2 years so …we’ll keep on waiting! 

If you are part of the adoption community feel free to leave comments!

Fall, What a Lovely Season!

I am just really enjoying the beautiful colors of fall…all the colorful leaves and grasses and now we see the lush, green, newly sprouted wheat fields.  The children have been memorizing poems for a Poem Fest at School.  It will be Friday night with Parents and Grandparents invited to hear their talents.  And an added bonus of Hot Chocolate and snacks served afterward.

Jason made a batch of Colby Cheese yesterday and was thrilled with the yield.  When the fat and protein levels are high in the milk we get more cheese out of the same amount of milk.  This cheese will be in the press til Friday when the crew comes to help cut and package.

Sunday morning Jason got to Church late.  He went to take care of the one new calf that had been born during the night and found 3! That takes some time to give them the special care they need.

Happy Calves

      We took 7 bull calves to the Sale Barn yesterday. You would have thought a Buck got in with the cows the way some of those calves danced around in the ring. They acted like they were part deer…so cute!

Our children, ages 12-6 are now big into playing chess in their spare time.  The 6 year old tried to explain the rules to her mom who knows nothing about the game. They wish I would learn so they could play against me and I think now they think that would be an easy way for them to win the game!
