Welcome to my blog. I’m glad you’ve come to visit and get a glimpse of my crazy life. I live with my husband, Rob, and our youngest daughter, Patsy, in a small house right in the middle of a small city in Oregon. We love children, and have 8. We also spend a lot of time with our nieces and nephews, and any other kids or babies we can borrow. I love to garden, preserve food, sew and cook. Between those things, homeschool, and all the time spent with kids, I don’t have a lot of time on my hands. Through it all, I keep things frugal, so that I can have money to do the things I love.
We love camping and go whenever possible, often taking our nephew, Jake, along. He loves it, too!
We love to garden. We had a bumper crop of onions this year. Right now, nothing is growing, but we are sure eating like kings and queens and will continue to do so with what I’ve preserved.
I can and freeze everything I can.
After about 15 years off, I have recently taken up quilting again. I’m rusty, but I’m making progress.
We have a few challenges we are living through, as every other family does. Our biggest one right now is that my husband, Rob, is embarked on a serious weight-loss journey. In the past year and a half, he has lost over 150 pounds. He is very serious about this weight loss, because he needed, and received hip replacement surgery. It has been a miracle for us as he has gone from being barely able to creep around to being able to walk easily. He now has to continue building himself up from the years of inactivity, and keep that weight off, always a challenge.
So far……he’s lost over 6 of these rice bags full of weight. Insane!
This past summer, we welcomed the cutest little grandson into our lives. He’s such a cutie, and we are in love already:)
I’m glad you could join us as we navigate our wild life—all the while relying on the Lord to help us through each and every situation we face, because without Him, it would not just be a crazy life, it would be an impossible one.
