Moving always involves finding new places for your belongings, settling into new routines, finding a new coffee stand, and learning how to parent in a new setting. For us, it also involves continuing prefield development.
Everyday, there’s something new to uncover. So we’d like to give a sneak peek of what those things were this week!
Friday, we drove into town to do some shopping. Finding a new grocery store (and then where everything is in the store is a big feat… especially with little kids in tow). Clara had a minor accident that included a good bump on her head, but she has since healed nicely.
Saturday, Ruth spent some time wearing Anna and Elsa pigtails, eating a snack, and working on her letters. Big favorite!
Thanks to new friends, the kids got to ride a horse on Sunday. They were so excited and would have ridden all day, if we’d let them!
Full disclosure: we have ZERO pictures from Monday and not a clue what we actually did, besides water cows, make meals, and clean up. So here’s a cute photo of my dad, my son, and some cows. Let’s pretend it was on Monday.
Rainbows, the Batts men, and running through open fields in rain boots? Yes please.
Nothing says, “What a successful day!” like a new woodshed being filled with split firewood.
While Allen and my dad kept the kids busy at the ranch, mom and I headed west to the Oregon coast for a belated birthday celebration. Being by the ocean is always so calming. I’m thankful the guys were willing to keep the kids so we could get away for some mom/daughter time.
