Let’s play!

One of K’s favorite times of day is play time in the evening with Adam (Daddy). I am so thankful he is willing (and good, I might add) with imaginative play. It is not my specialty and no matter how tired he feels, he usually always makes time in the evening to “play.” So after working all day and then coming home and working on the farm until dark, he is ready with a smile on his face. Earlier in the day, K had “decorated” the living room again. She had set up a store; he was the customer and she was the store clerk. Here is the desk at her store and everything in the living room was “for sale.”

Adam would walk around the “store” and look at items and he kept saying over and over, “You’re store is so cool. It has so many cool things to buy.” Then he would pick out an item, take it to the desk and ask how much it cost. Here is K calculating the cost of an item and making a sale (the Spot It game is her calculator). The orange paper is where she writes down each purchase.

Here are some pictures of her looking at the product and Adam paying for it with his “money.” And there is G photo bombing on the couch.

Then she received a phone call from an interested customer. She told the customer on the phone everything the store sells and why they should come shop at her store. While she was on the phone, Adam called a friend to tell him how cool her store is and that he should come check it out.


She is saying, “Oh I forgot to tell you, we also have drums for sale.”

Adam purchased several items but the last item, he couldn’t find his “wallet.” K said “That’s okay, I have money.” So sweet! Here are some pictures of what the other 2 kiddos were doing while Adam was shopping. G and MJ fight A LOT over toys, space, anything really. So MJ is pushing G out of the boppy and then lies down on the pillow and she came over and tried to push him off of that too. Such a bully!

This is G saying “I am not moving” and MJ saying “Haha, I got my way!”


Such a fun night!

BTW, here is a finished picture of the greenhouse! We are so thankful spring is here and we are enjoying walking around looking at all of the new buds on the fruit trees and watching our seedlings grow into plants. It is so warm here we have to open up the greenhouse during the day and turn a fan on to air it out.



Please come back sunshine

While half of my family is dealing with shovels, snow plows and winter attire, we are running our A/C, eating fresh strawberries and wearing summer clothes. That’s right folks, welcome to sunny FL. Whoops, not sunny FL, overcast and gloomy FL. In fact, yesterday, the chickens were so excited to see sunshine we actually had a 75% laying day for eggs! I was so thrilled and then today we had a 10% laying day. The farm animals, the kids and I NEED some sunshine! So today we pretended like it wasn’t going to rain and we played outside in spite of the foggy, overcast weather. Duke was determined to interest the pigs in playing with him but they were enjoying their hole in the dirt too much to pay him any attention! Enjoy the pictures.
