The Farm

A couple of weeks ago, we loaded the boys up and took a trip to the local farm that supports a lot of our community.  They are really the only large, commercial farm that hosts berry picking, fall festivals, peach groves, and so much more.  It is just up the road a bit and past the Alligator Rural water tower.  McLeod is the name.  For those not from this area, it is pronounced " Mc Cloud".  It is a sweet place complete with a grocery of their home-grown products. We took a hay ride through the peach groves to the corn fields.  We adventured through the maze, and enjoyed a trip through the grocery on our way out. I will let the pictures tell the story.

Then we ventured indoors.  We saw some familiar faces and enjoyed the sites and smells of the season's freshest goods.  Just looking at the surplus of deliciousness makes me feel so very grateful to be alive, be in this wonderful country, and be loved by a Creator that thinks of me...and my love for the country and peaches.

Yum...I could fill a paper sack or two with all these goodies. Come see us sometime and we will take you to the farm for some goodies of your own! Or, you could visit from the coziness of your internet by clicking here! Happy Farming!

Oh My...

Lately, the road has been full of curves.  I feel I have left a good friend behind when I cannot spend a bit of time here.  It is quite late now, and I should be sleeping.  However, I wanted to check in for moment.  I have so many blog posts piling up inside this noggin of mine...and camera.  There are things to share, pictures to see, and stories to tell.  Here is the running list of "things" piling in the brain...

1. The tree...it fell...all the way over...an act of God.  It did not hit our home or even touch the new roof.  There are a gazillion stories around this topic. The tree has brought the community to our doorsteps...the tree....

2.  Lincoln has been diagnosed with a milk protein allergy.  It makes a lot of puzzle pieces fit better.  We now know why nursing was nearly impossible.  In the process we have discovered he is quite allergic to soy, as well. Fun times.

3. Moving the house all around...again.  Change is in the air here..long story, but have you ever moved in your own home?  Just. As. Much. Work...Minus the truck.

4. Knee deep in Christmas program planning.  Loving my classes.  LOVING my job and my time at home.

5. Husband STILL commuting an hour and a half one way everyday = feeling like a single mother during the week...except for the laundry that proves someone here wears bigger pants than me! Ha Ha

6.  Being blown away at how God provides.  Blown. Away. 

7.  Being a part of the mission church here in town.  We had 21 in Sunday School this week!  Being on mission is so exciting.

8.  The adventure of raising boys.  Enough Said.

Oh my, lots to share...lots to share.  I will be back! In the meantime, here is a photo of my pumpkins in the pumpkin patch. We were made for fall...our little orange heads just match!

And for the record...I have no idea what the gal in the background is wearing except that the pumpkin patch is next door to a dance studio...so I am hoping she came from there!
