The Homestead Is Growing!

Yes, our little 4 acres is growing by leaps and bounds! Everything is turning lush and green and garden work has commenced!

 This was my first year to grow tulips and I just love being able to pull beautiful flowers from the garden right at a time when everyone is so eager for spring to arrive!

 We recently found an ad on Facebook for a free swing/play set if we could move it off the property. The men went to pick it up and are working on assembling it now. The children can't wait for it to be finished!
 Caleb reads a book while holding our very round mother cat. She "blessed" us with 6 adorable babies a couple days later! Laura is thrilled! 

 Caleb walks beside Dad wishing he was old enough to run the tiller. 

 Ohh, wait! Maybe he is old enough! With plenty of supervision from Dad of course! 
 
 Planting potatoes

 I always have lots of willing helpers when it comes to planting time! Afraid they might not be so willing in a couple months when it is weeding time!! Here they are planting Gladioli bulbs.

 Some people love to read so much that they bring books along to garden time for those stray minutes when they can snatch a few words! 

 The family went cow shopping a few days ago and came home instead with a .... baby goat! They had just fallen in love with the kid goats and brought this 1 month old Alpine girl home! The children love her to pieces and she follows them everywhere!

 Ethan got a delivery of  30 chicks in the mail to add more feathers to our flock! 

Palm Sunday morning, we gathered with Grandpa & Grandma Morley and our two cousins living with us right now, for a little service and hymn sing.


In this time of uncertainty, how wonderful to know that we don't need to be afraid or fearful because we know the One who holds tomorrow! 

Blessings to all, 
Susanna
