Yoga Hike

As most of you may know, we are a homeschooling family.  On Thursdays my older kids go to a charter school to take electives.  They are taking classes like art, piano, guitar, sewing, cooking, karate, sculpting, humanitarian projects, and lego robotics. They love it, and I love it!

That means that on Thursdays, it is just Madelyn and I at home. The days that we are schooling at home I am busy teaching and helping the kids with their work. While Madelyn does receive quite a bit of attention while we do her "school" which consists of reading books and playing games, my time with her is often interrupted by the older ones. Thursdays have become our "special days" where we go and do something together, just the two of us.

Today we did a yoga hike. I strapped her on my back along with our yoga mats and hiked up the hill that overlooks our neighborhood. She talked non-stop on the way up, and we sang songs on the way down. The weather was perfect, the air was fresh, and the morning sun felt delightful on my skin. The only disappointment came to Madelyn when she actually thought we were going to do yoga IN the water tower.

 And of course we had to end by playing airplane

I can't wait until next week with Madelyn! Leave a comment if you have any great ideas for us!

Rooster? We Don't Have a Rooster!

I love sleeping with my windows open at night. The fresh, cool, night air does a clean sweep through the house leaving it refreshed in the morning.

Early this morning, with my windows open, I was woken by a rooster. Our neighbors don't have chickens and I was so confused as to where the rooster had come from. I had to shut all the windows in the house because the rooster was so loud! 

It continued to crow through the morning, and I decided I better investigate. We don't have a rooster, but I decided to check in our coop anyways. There wasn't one rooster in there, there were TWO ROOSTERS in my coop! 

This would have come as a complete surprise to me if I hadn't recognized one of the beautiful roosters as my neighbors. They had bought some "free run" chickens (this means that when you purchase them, the sex has not been determined, so you could end up with roosters), and they had 2 roosters out of the batch. I knew that these neighbors didn't want the roosters and were trying to get rid of them. I just didn't expect for them to get rid of them by donating them to my backyard farm as a "funny" joke.

It took me a while to get to the bottom of it, but I figured out all who were involved. I only have pictures of two out of the three culprits, and I'm posting the most embarrassing pictures I have of them. Yet, the payback is not complete!

If you see these two hooligans in your neighborhood, beware! You may end up with roosters waking you up early in the morning.

Where Have We Been?!?!?

We have received so many kind emails asking if we were ever going to come back. Quick notes wondering where we have disappeared to.  Thank you so much for those kind words. They are so thoughtful and I truly appreciate them!

  This backyard farm of ours continues to make progress towards becoming my "dream farm", but just at a slow pace. But, that is okay!   Its just too bad that I don't have enough time, money, and energy to keep up with all the dreams I have in my head. All that matters is that we continue to make progress in the right direction, right?

So what have I been doing with my time?

Most importantly I've had a lovely summer spending time with my family. We have been able to do a little traveling and see some beautiful places like Yellowstone. 

And Lake Powell

And I met up with my family in Santa Fe
 It is just always so much fun when my entire family can get together for a few days. We laughed, we cried, we saw the sights, we had a family 5k, a talent show...it was so dreamily perfect.

I've also been busy sharing my passion of essential oils. Have I told you how much I love essential oils? Have I mentioned how they have blessed my family? Michael has been off of his anxiety medication for a year now, and I haven't had to use my rescue inhaler for asthma. Not to mention the ear aches, tummy aches, athlete's foot, warts, coughs, Molluscum contagiosum and so many other minor issues we have cured with the oils.

I will be hosting another webinar, so that you can learn how essential oils can heal you emotionally, spiritually, and physically.

I would love to have you join me! Come ready to learn and ask questions. 

(I think I need a new picture since I'm growing my hair out, what do you think?)

Oh, I almost forgot....leave a comment and share what you were up to this summer!
