I don't even know where to start to catch y'all up on my life so I won't even try. I'll post a few pictures here and say that all is well with me and my family.
The kids are growing up too fast. Porter will start school in one year. That's way too soon for me. Adellia is, I think, pretty much exactly like me at her age. She loves to make messes!! Just this morning she made a beautiful blue masterpiece on the wall with crayons. Rubie is 8 months old now and she's so close to walking it's scary! She has such a funny personality and I anticipate that she will be my "diffucult" child. What am I saying, she already is!! She loves to torment the bigger kids when they are trying to eat. "Mom, Rubie is stealing my food!!" I have one of those baby seats that hooks to the table for her to sit in when we eat but she hates it and makes short work of the 5-point harness that holds her in it. I have to stay within an arms length when she's in it so she won't fall out.
Trent is back in school now (online) which means a lot of work for me and him. I think my job is harder. Don't tell him I said that. I have to keep the kids under control and somewhat quiet while he does his homework. Plus I'm like his secretary. I make sure he knows what is due when and all that stuff.
My garden is doing ok this year. I have what I like to call a tomato jungle in the greenhouse. Im getting squash and cucumbers pretty regularly now too. Porter's giant pumpkins are doing good but they may not end up being as giant as the picture on the seed packet. The only thing that dissapointed us this year is the corn. I put it in a new spot and I think it may not get enough sun. We will still get some corn but not as much as last year. I already have plans for what I will do with next years garden. I also want to plant some more flowers. Porter's sunflowers mostly got ate by the bulls through the fence and I didn't really plan ahead with the flowers so I got very few blooms. I am looking forward to hollyhocks next summer and some lupines that I just planted (if they survive the winter).
She wanted tomatoes with her breakfast. YUM!!
