Today is my birthday! I had such a lovely day, and enjoyed every minute. With spring break this week, John is home, so we could have gone anywhere and done anything (well … not anywhere and anything …)
But we didn’t. We spent the day in my most favourite place of all. At home.
You may recall that just a few months ago we finally made the move to our lovely farmhouse. And while the new place has thrown us a few curve balls (like the cost of heating it, for example … which is part of the reason we really couldn’t go anywhere and do anything) it is still my most favourite place in the world.
This was my first birthday on the farm and I absolutely soaked it all in. We spent the entire day outside. We got the coop all cleaned out for the ladies, built a simple chicken manure composter, did more garden planning, and gave the chickens some snuggles.
It’s funny how quickly life changes. But this life season I am in now, with busy little ones, starting our family farm, and going to bed exhausted but fulfilled – it’s a wonderful one. I am so excited for the year ahead.
Thank you for sharing this journey with me and my family. For visiting us here often, or even just once in awhile. I am so grateful for the friendships I have made in this space. Your comments always make me smile, and encourage me to continue this path of finding creative, simple activities to make learning engaging, meaningful, and fun for little ones.
Thank you for helping to make this year wonderful!
