Update...



Labor day weekend is a weekend we like to stay home, so we don't have to deal with crowds and heavy traffic. We usually plan a short trip the weekend after. Since we were staying home this weekend, we were open to doing some respite foster care, so we have our first little foster child this weekend. He will go back to his foster home on monday. He is around 14 mos. old, and adorable. He looks like he could be related to Miranda with all his blonde hair and blue eyes. Lilyann had a bit of a hard time getting used to him at first but she doing better now. I guess I won't be getting all the yard work, housework, canning, and scrapbooking done like I had planned!

On our way home tonight we stopped and looked at an old farmhouse that we saw for sale. It was older than our house, which was built before 1930. I loved it. It needed some renovations, but had so much charm, character and potential. We love looking at older homes when we get a chance. It's hard to believe we have had our little farmhouse for 14 years now...and we are still working on it! There is lots more going on around here, so I will take time to give a better update later this weekend. We have some new additions to the farm...stay tuned.

Well, I am off to make a batch of homemade laundry detergent, after the little ones are tucked in bed.

The farmhouse sounds lovely! Are you looking to move? I know what you mean about the renovations...they seem to go on forever...but they are fun in their own way, I guess. : )

Have a great week-end and enjoy your time with the little cutie who is staying with you for the week-end!
