Tomorrow we will have one week of school officially under our belt. I have also come to learn that I and Cade have a great deal of anxiety about back to school. I hesitated writing this too soon because our school system is amazing and the staff is top notch! I didn't want to distract … Continue reading Back to School
One week ago, I was preparing for farmers market and packing Cade to go spend a few days in Lincoln with his aunt. I kept going along while waiting for Cade's anxiety to set in. But the anxiety never came! No questions on how he would get to bed. No questions about how he would … Continue reading Carefree!!
So we started off fair officially last week with shooting sports. Cole participated in trap shooting on July 10. He had a great time and did well. Then we kicked off our inaugural year of Farmers Market on the 11th. It was a hot day but Cade absolutely loved it. He had a blast selling … Continue reading Fair, Faith, and Farmers Market
We have hit our summer stride and my mind does not think about writing a post until I am in bed and too exhausted! We are doing great and have even started sending Cade out with a video camera or a GoPro so he can video his adventures. I have now figured out how not … Continue reading Gearing up for Market

We did some other fun things while we were there too but Cade and I watch the Backyard Farmer on television every week and decided we wanted to check out the garden. So we checked with Aunt Amber for … Continue reading Going Up?

We didn't have any idea of how all consuming this diagnosis would be. So we numbly dove into research. We researched about medical information that … Continue reading Two Years In
After we got back from the field trip to Halsey on Friday, our focus shifted to the next task at hand, accessibility for Cade for this summer. We have been having some trouble with a wonderful program that Cade is a part of due to some administrative issues. This program would have helped put in … Continue reading Freedom for Cade
I just realized how long it has been since my last post! We are still going strong but busy. We are getting all things ready for summer here. We have planted seeds, prepared raised beds, tilled the garden, and have the chicks growing nicely. Seed starting is something new we took on this year. We … Continue reading We Are Still Here
Life has been a flurry of activity on the farm right now. Among all of the usual farm activities, we have also been rethinking and reworking our house in order to make access easier for Cade. So with that being said, here is a recap of our life recently. All those baby calves that have … Continue reading Brandings, Babies and Dirt
