I'm Still Here, but older
Wow, today was a heat wave. It was 51 degrees and the snows almost all gone. Fear not, the temps should drop into the teens by tomorrow night, boy thats going to feel chilly. Today I turned 31 years old, and this evening I feel like I'm 65. I spent most of the day cutting, splitting and stacking wood with my boys. One log was a big old maple, oh I hate splitting maple! That snarly ole stuff takes the steam right out of ya. We had a nice calf born yesterday, a Deluxe daughter. Very big, very dairy, very stylish. We really like the Deluxe calves and heifers, we sold one at the Top of the World sale in Madision last year. I got some neat stuff to listen to for my birthday from Wordmp3.com. If you've never been on the site be sure to check it out. They had some stuff on sale this week. I'm a big fan of James Jordon and Peter Leithart. I was thrilled to see their Knowing the Scriptures Confrence was only $5. I thought this looked interesting and it to was only $5. This was the icing on the cake, if you will. Now that I've shared my gifts with you, I'm sure there a few people smiling and more than a few making a mental note to pray for me tonight :)
Emily has a blog. She writes,
"We have taken a road that is perhaps not uncommon to the world in general, but in our respective families it is. Some would call us oddballs but we consider ourselves blessed. Our politics are conservative and our faith is Reformed. We are a one-income family. We homeschool, homebirth, doctor ourselves, and do not vaccinate our children."
I look forward to hearing more from her. We at Homesteader Life welcome all Reformed Agrarian Oddballs. Its nice to know we're not alone!
