Rachel was happy to be able to assist in opening boxes, decoration, cleaning and any number of tasks that Amanda and Ryan needed since they were finally able to move into their new home! We were able to help with the moving job and afterward Rachel stayed on to help, since Amanda was nearing her due date.
They were even able to find a patch of nice clean snow make some snow ice cream!
Ryan was busily taping windows to keep Jack Frost at bay.
And the nursery was put together for the arrival of the new addition to the family.
A tea party was enjoyed at Providence Prairie recently. Trey and Clair had gifted the nice china set and they simply had to be put to the best use! The proper attire was donned and the refreshments prepared. . .
Since some of the school studies had recently been about Indian burial mounds and Serpent Mound in particular, we decided that we could not pass up the opportunity to stop by this landmark on our way home from Ohio.
We climbed the observation tower in the brisk early January weather.
It made a nice short diversion on our way home and put a dose of reality to dry textbook studies!
Our family has taken a step out of the typical run of the mill lifestyle in lieu of a back to basics way of living. The world looks different from our perspective. Our homestead is an ongoing process of trials and triumphs in pioneer activities, enhanced with technology available today.
