Thankful Thursday

 I'm so thankful that we've had such beautiful weather lately.  The kids have been outdoors as much as they can.  They've been helping their father get the garden ready by bringing loads of dead leaves and goat/chicken manure to spread on for fertilizer.  They come in dirty, sometimes wounded and always ready for a snack and a good night sleep.

This week our momma cat was killed in our garage door and she left us 4 baby kittens to take care of.   Even though we are terribly sad and miss Tiger dearly, we are finding joy in learning how to care for her little ones.

While daddy and the big kids were outside tonight, Maddie and I had a fun photo shoot.  She woke up pretty fussy so I was trying to distract her a little with something different.  I won't bore you with all of them, but here is one of my favorites.  :) 

Hope you had a blessed week and were able to enjoy this lovely weather.

Such fun. I love the pictures of the kids enjoying the freshly plowed dirt: there really isn't anything quite like it. Country kids loving life! And those mom-moments like the one you had with Maddie are priceless. Love this post! :-)

Other than the past few days of cold rain and bit of snow...the weather has been beautiful! It is so exciting to start in the garden! Be blessed!
