The Homestead Journal ~ Week 69 & 70~ Busy Spring Chores!

Homestead Happenings
With our computer down, its been tedious to blog via phone, even with the amazing technology that allows me to do so.
I edit the pics at the library and even with just watermarking, its time consuming and time is valuable! So this will mostly be a week in pics, kind of post. 

The boys got the garden boxes started. We planted cabbage and spinach.. Then the dogs showed how grateful they were for their new dog beds, by digging them a comfy spot and laying in them.. We are now working on a fence......

Our Adventures
I am working 4 days a week now as business is picking up. I post photos of  my week on my grooming blog here

We went with Daddy on one of his assignments for work. It was a beautiful spring day and we never turn down an opportunity to go for a drive! 

 Later in the week we hit the park! So glad spring is here! 

On Our Bookshelf
We borrow a lot of books from the library. The children pick out their own books, and I grab some that I feel they need for school. 

The Little's Books

Urijah got his own library card and is very excited. This past week he has been reading the little Beatrix Potter books. He also grabbed some Thomas the Tank Engine books.
