I live on a dairy farm with my family and I enjoy sharing our life with family, friends and anyone else who wants to visit the farm. There's no telling what the I will write about from day to day, but hopefully you'll be enriched when you stop by! Have a wonderfully blessed day!

Spinning Plates

Have you ever felt like you had to keep a bunch of plates spinning on top of long sticks? That's what I feel like today. Only my plates are my kids.

It's summer break and the last thing I want is for my kids to veg out all summer in front of the TV. So, to keep that from happening we had a family meeting to discuss the summer projects and the daily expectations. The only problem is when you have three procrastinators and one self starter with a girlfriend, it's a full time job to keep them busy. Hence the spinning plates.

So, this morning the boys are out working with their dad, Sarah has been doing dishes, folding clothes and is now making granola. While I write today, I will be listening for vegetative children and keeping them from sitting too long in one spot. It's a good thing I have ADD, I welcome the interruption of having to get up and go assign jobs. It keeps the creativity going!
