Goals and Spring

I tried to think of something to sum up this post....

It has been quiet here on my blog as we have been about the business of spring....packing away winter and all that goes with it....

Spring activities bursting onto the scene....Ben, Eli and Devon learned to ride bikes in about 3 days after pulling them out for the season.  They have banged up elbows and knees to show it too!

Still plugging away at our school work....celebrating as we finish books for the year!

The daily business that makes up our lives and keeps us hopping each day!  We've been working hard at preparing our garden for the summer and were immensely blessed by several loads of wood chips to help our new Back to Eden Gardening.

The kids have had their first horseback riding lessons for the season....our newest ducks and chickens are getting big!

And...

Last summer as one of our summer goals we planned to hike the NH Firetower Challenge.  We didn't do any fire towers during the summer but started in the fall.  We restarted when Ben and Eli came home and are very happy to report we finally got all of our kiddos to do at least 5 towers and finished our last one this past Saturday.  Despite the notorious black fly season....



we managed to hike to the summit and then went to celebrate at Kimbell farm for ice cream and their beautiful petting zoo.  The kids loved the sand pile....what kid doesn't?






Earlier in the day we had a family dinner thanks to the gift cards we were given at Christmas....it was good to be together.  We are treasuring  these times!
