Kangaroo Zoo

As we pased through Arlington on our way to stay at a lovely cabin at Jim Creek, we stopped at the Kangaroo Zoo.
We had a great time petting and feeding and seeing the animals up close! 

You can see a baby peeking out of the mama's pouch below

Giveaway- HERO DVD

I am so excited to have a chance to give away this clean, family friendly DVD about how important a Dad is in his son's life! My boys really liked this movie! 
 Leave a comment and let me know if you would like to win a copy! 

Dads are a Superpower

Coming to DVD September 16th

 A father’s broken relationship with his family fills him with determination to win back the son he left behind.  Reaching out through the game they both love, he deliberately forms a baseball team designed to reconnect both fathers and sons, transforming their town in the process.  The story shows how one good man can lead change in his community for the common good.


If 2 chicks weren't enough, next thing we knew a pair of  day old ducklings moved in!

And here they are at one week.

First we had Reepicheep
 Then 4 days later Lucy came.
 This photo was when he was 1 week old.
  This is 2 weeks.
And when Lucy was 2 weeks.
They grow so fast!
Reepicheep is 3 weeks old  today, and Lucy is 2 1/2 weeks. It has been such a wonderful learning experience for our whole family!

 5  Thus says the Lord:

“Cursed is the man who trusts in man

and makes flesh his strength,
whose heart turns away from the Lord.
 He is like a shrub in the desert,
and shall not see when prosperity comes.
He shall dwell in the stony wastelands of the wilderness,
in an uninhabited salt land.

 "Blessed is the man who trusts in the Lord,

And whose trust is the Lord.
 He is like a tree planted by water,
that sends out its roots by the stream,
and does not fear when heat comes,
for its leaves remain green,
and is not anxious in the year of drought,
nor cease to bear fruit.

Jeremiah 17

Farm Sitting

It is so great having friends with farms, when you can't have a farm of your own. 
We have been able to farm-sit again this month, and it has been so much fun!

We were responsible for 6 baby ducks,
watering the many plants

  picking vegetables,


collecting eggs from the chickens and handful of ducks (and checking the food and water)


My kiddos loved crawling up the hay stacks every chance they got. They long for farm life almost as much as their mama!

It was surprisingly hard, but very enjoyable work!
We were so blessed to be able to help!
