My girls enjoyed art class in town today! This week begins the busiest time of year for me. Three of my kids have birthdays this month...one each week leading up to Christmas! And, we are working hard at finishing up our semester units for school, so we can take some time off before we start our new semester in January. Work, work, work, but it will be worth it!
One of the downfalls of hobby farm life...weeds! Nightshade is easily identifiable in the fall, thanks to its bright red berries. Today was mild & pleasant, so we were able to pull much of it up. We let the little boys play while we worked in the woods. The more we pull up now, the less we'll have to deal with next year!
Happy Thanksgiving, everyone! Becca took some photos of our feast, and made our food look even better! ;-) We decided to roast a couple of our homegrown chickens instead of cooking a turkey this year. We're grateful for God's abundant grace and mercy in our lives!!

God showed us some lovely color this evening as we walked the trails in our backyard! It seemed to be a promise to me that our school year will go well, even if our days are busy and sometimes long. I am reminded to not be weary in well-doing (Galatians 6:9).
