It’s been a minute since I blogged.
The entire month of May is crazy hectic and absolutely exhausting for me and Lynn both.
But we’ve finally got a little room to breathe. Or at least I have, and happy Mama, happy life…or something along those lines.
The girls are growing at lightening speed. They are also flexing their strong wills, testing me and each other.
I know they will need that someday, but I might have threatened to sell Caroline to the circus today as the “girl who never stops talking sideshow”.
Probably not my proudest parenting moment.
It’s probably not too out of character for me because she laughed uproariously slapped her knee and launched into another verbose and loud story. (What kid slaps their knee? I thought that was reserved for the 65+ crowd)
Caroline is old enough to hang with the farmers all day now. Although it completely wipes her out.
Claire is not ready for that but still prefers the farm over everything else.
They are wild children, reminiscent of the feral “dog boy child” with their shrieks and climbing and leaping. And then, when I least expect it they switch gears and become polite and proper society girls and demand everyone around them use polite manners.
They are happy and loving and are thriving.
Lynn and his dad baled some 340 some bales of hay today. He sent me this picture when he got done. Quite the office view.
He is the hardest worker I know, and I hope we can teach the girls that strong work ethic.
Anyway that’s where we are now. Glad May is over, and happy it’s June.
Thanks for reading friends.
