School Books

Here are most of the books for our upcoming school year! I've only included books for my boys (grades 1-4), since my girls are set up for school on their computers. We're almost ready!

Scott County Fair

We had such a great day at the Scott County Fair yesterday! We rode all the rides, ate lots of yummy fair food, and stayed until the sun set! :-D

Date Night

Eric & I went on an impromptu date to our favorite place...downtown Northfield! It is such a pretty little town, and we're so glad we live only about 5 minutes from it. Lots of good memories, delicious food, and romantic scenery! I'm thankful for such a loving husband, and the sweet life we've been blessed with!


There are so many beautiful flowers, plants, and trees on our land! :-)

Twins' Birthday Party

Here are some pictures from the twins' birthday party when they turned six! It was such a fun party!!

Beautiful View

Peaceful evening on the deck...

New Kittens

New adoptees from our friend's farm! Meet Skye, Strider, Estelle, and Leo!😊

Chicken Run Expansion

Eric and the kids built an extension onto our chicken run to give them more room to roam. He also fixed it up so that we can bring in our new batch of chickens. They will love having their own space! Now they'll all be safer from our local birds of prey, wild animals, and other predators!

True North Kids' Club Awards

Here are some pictures from our end-of-year awards ceremony for True North Kids' Club! The weather was lovely, so we decided to hold the event outside. Our four boys received the "Armor of God" award for memorizing Bible verses. Sam received the "Diligence" award, Dan received the "Gracious Servant" award, and the twins both received the "Fruit of Joy" award! Great job, guys!

Mini Mt. Rushmore

I was perusing through photos from a few months ago, and came across this one I had forgotten about! This is "Mini Mt. Rushmore" in Wall, South Dakota. Fun times!


Remembering some of the fun times and wonderful family memories from our trip to Oregon! :-)

Oregon Family Visit

We spent some time in Oregon visiting Eric's side of the family! It was a lot of fun, and we made some great memories! It went by so quickly, though, and we miss our time with the family. Hopefully, some of them will be able to come out and visit later this year! :-)
