I was looking over my blog entries from this last year.. It has been one crazy year.. Lots of things happened good and bad. God's blessings have been very apparent this year.
We Started out 2009 in a stressful situation that just got worse over the next few months. We decided to move and on May 31st a house practically fell into our laps!
It is a perfect place for us. In the mean time My Mother in law was diagnosed with cancer and I was scheduled for surgery too.. The girls had goat shows in the mean time and we were moving 35 miles away... The month of July was spent settling in and enjoying our new front porch.. August was the month of my surgery. Boy that took the wind out of my sails for a while. Lol. We are recovered from that for the most part. My mother in law was able to get her cancer taken care of with extensive surgery. God had blessed us and kept us through it all.
Then came October!!! Kyle was laid off for what was supposed to be 3 weeks At the most.. Its now been 3 months But hope is on the horizon!.. Things got tight and stressful. But time and again things have worked out. We have had to swallow our pride a few times but we are hanging on like that tree in the pic.lol There was so many little thing good and not so good that have happened through the year. It makes me glad 2009 is over and better as a memory!
I made some new friends this year that have become very good friends. I have met several through my blogging attempts and enjoy visiting all the different blogs and hearing about other's adventures in this life.
My goaty friends are near and dear to me. I enjoy every time I get to visit or email them!
This has been the best year yet with my girls homeschooling. I think we finally found our groove!Lol I am so very proud of my girls. They are so individual and unique. I love watching them learn how to live and figure things out.
Financially and farm wise we have a good plan. I am looking forward to 2010 with great expectancy. 2009 brought back into focus what is really important in our life. That is God and Family. Its so easy for other things to push in and take to much time...
I am looking forward to sharing the next year here with all my blogging friends and readers. So to close out this blog post and get started on the new year.
Here is a picture from last night. This is not my goat. My friend got her a week or so ago. She is a Boer/Nigerian Dwarf Cross!! She is 4 months old and about the size of a newborn full size goat. She is tiny! She didn't get her to breed just for a pet. Obviously!lol She was enjoying our fire last night. We put a pull up on her so we didn't have to worry about cleaning up goat berries and pee puddles! She is still a little scrawny as the place they got her from was less than Ideal.... A lot less! But she does have some spunk!lol She is currently being treated for Pneumonia though. They got meds into her soon enough I am sure she will be fine. She is being plenty spoiled. But she is looking for a little friend to go with her. Possibly a Nigerian dwarf doe. She has Nubians too. Goats are an addiction!
Okay so this is the end of my first post for 2010... I hope everyone enjoys their day.
