Fall is just around the corner.
We're now in our second (or is it the third?) week of school.
Our garden is, once again, a failure this year. Without the proper setup for watering, and a gate to easily get into the garden, and having the older boys leave for so many weeks in the middle of the season.... it just doesn't stand a chance of survival against the elements (weeds, draught, goat attacks).
Here's a quick update in pictures of some of our activities the last month or two....
My first attempt at rabbit jerky turned out very good!
We "watched" the solar eclipse last month.
Camping and swimming every other weekend is our new summer tradition.
This young'un learned how to write his name in "school"!
Priscilla had our first babies of the year. There were eleven, but I think either the heat made it too hard on her, or maybe she just couldn't feed that many... eight babies have survived and are thriving.
School is NOT the kids' favorite part of the day.
This little guy is growing up way too fast! He'll turn three in just a few weeks!
Fun Fact: Amish-made apple pie is so much better than any store-bought, and even better than my own homemade pie. I'm so excited to have an Amish store moving in just down the road from us!
