There are so many changes around here that I’m not sure I can even document them all (or remember it).
::”AJ” was born on October 9th after a quick labor but a transfer to the hospital. It was a successful VBAC so I still feel accomplished. :) Hopefully soon I’ll get back on the blog to post the birth story.
::Four days later we moved from our rental to our homestead. I am so grateful for family and friends because I went from sitting on the chair, to the bed, back to my chair while they hauled things to the trailer. My chair was the final thing to be moved. The bed was the first thing to be moved in so I could bring AJ in and lay down.
::We got 4 laying hens from my mom and added them to the 2 hens, 1 rooster, 1 drake, and 3 ducks we had.
::Then we got 6 more laying hens from my sister-in-law.
::Just because the barn was too quiet, we got an Alpine/Nubian goat named “Juno the Goat Goat.” She needs a friend, so at the end of this week we will get a bred Nubian named “Luna.”
::Lots of random little projects like getting fences, building goat runs, fixing our kitchen sink which turned into trying to fix the drain field which turned into fixing the plumbing in the basement. My poor DH!
::Our essential spaces of the home are set up -the kitchen, pantry, living room, and mostly the bedrooms. Our dining room is still in progress because DH is using that space as his office until he can remodel a room upstairs.
Some days it’s all a little overwhelming with the projects we see before us and two little ones who need our attention, but when we sit and think about our place and our life it’s really rewarding too.
