Knolltop Farm Wife

Welcome to my blog! I'm a wife, mother of four and a self-employed freelance writer. 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!

Troopers and Battles

Good Morning from the crew at the Knolltop.

Painting is the name of the game today. Yesterday, Jake, Sarah and I tackled the back of the barn. It was a real trip with Sarah afraid of heights and wasps swarming around us. But we got a big chunk of it done without falling to our death or getting stung! We will head back out this morning after breakfast and tempt those wasps again.

I was very proud of Sarah for sticking with it. She really was very uncomfortable up there and still stuck with me. She's a real trooper. She was tested over the weekend too when the little girl she was babysitting fell and cut her head. I was at Jake's ballgame and my cell phone rang. It was a panicked Sarah telling me I needed to get there right now...she needed me! After telling her to take a few deep breaths and to calm down, I was able to talk her through the rescue operation. By the time I got off the phone she was in control of the situation and had a plan. It turned out the little gal didn't need stitches like we thought she might. It was just a small cut, but you know how those head wounds bleed and make you look like you're doing battle with Goliath!

Better get to breakfast!
