First off, I have to say a big thank you to Lynette Kraft for featuring me on her blog late last week. What an unexpected treat!
Thanks for all the special ones who took the time to visit and comment! Did you know you could join us on facebook too?
This morning we started a new routine, we’re getting up earlier, so we can all eat breakfast together. I think since, time is such a commodity around here, we need to make the most of it, and breakfast is a way we can do that. Start the day as a family, food in our bellies, a little reading from the bible together, a quick prayer before we’re out the door. Hopefully to center our day, and to cut the craziness out of the mornings. To start a new morning routine, we had to start a new nightly routine, so there’s no more hurriedly packing bags and hunting for shoe-mates in the mornings. Is there something that you do that really helps get the morning moving? I’d love to hear any advice you have! (This picture is not from this morning, as it is still darkish when we're up before work.)
This weekend was a good mix of relaxing and work. We froze about 36 quarts of corn for Zestos, Inc. It is really awesome to come together as a collective group and work towards the goal of feeding people!
We picked tomatoes by the 5 gallon bucketful. I made some marinara sauce after the kids went to bed. I love tomatoes, I really do. But I think I’ll be doing a batch of sauce, whole tomatoes, crushed tomatoes, salsa every night for the next three weeks. Boiling water here I come...
The kids helped Rod move calves, they more stopped to pet and take turns holding the bottle. Aren’t those babies so sweet?
