Congratulations, Carlina!!!

Carlina officially graduated from High School and we celebrated the event with a bash on Sunday.  It was an exciting time with lots of friends, family and food!   I am so proud of Carlina...she has been home schooled from 6th grade on and has worked very hard.  She is going to be living at home in the Fall and taking some classes online and continuing to work.

Grandma's Visit

It was so nice to have my mom here for a few days.  She flew in from Indiana on Sunday and just left early this morning to go home.  She is a hard worker and helped me bunches.  She weeded, watered, cleaned and scrubbed.  We did take a little time to have some fun...she took us all out to the Olive Garden for lunch to celebrate Carlina's graduation.  I miss her and really enjoy when she comes to visit!!

May 4

Busy times.  Jesse worked the whole month of April with only a few days off.  Once a year his plant shuts down...everything is taken apart and repaired.  Finally we are through that hectic month and he has had a few days off....Thursday we built a llama fence, cleaned out the shed & worked on the pool fence.  We haven't lived on an acreage in years and I forget how much there is to do.  I have planted 9 trees (my goal is 10) and lots of plants, as well...watering them is a full time job.  We also now have 8 chickens.
