And Even More Snow

Now we really can't see out of the window. And Joash did not have school on Thursday either, so the poor guy is a bit out of sorts. And it has been too stormy and col for him to really enjoy being outside. This has been a really crazy week.

Last week Saturday, we had 700 pigs move into our pig barn. Another farmer on the Island had a roof cave in on one of his barns, so they needed a place for these pigs. We are grateful to help, but it does make for extra work. More animals that need to be fed since the automatic feeding system no longer works. More area to snow blow since we now have to have access to all of the barns. Overall it is good, but I have one tired and hardworking husband (and father-in-law.)

And while I always say I don't mind winter when I can watch it from inside my cozy house, I will admit I am going a little stir crazy. I am hoping to venture into the town tomorrow to stock up on groceries and I am looking forward to church on Sunday. I didn't get to church last week because Joash had a stomach bug.

Winter is here to stay for a while. There is no doubt about that.

He's Rolling!

Gideon has master rolling this week and sometimes, he is not too happy about it... He can go from his back to his belly all on his own. And if you lay him on his belly propped up on his elbows, he will roll over to his back.
He started rolling in his crib at nap time, so that means no more swaddling. Which also means we have to relearn sleeping through the night. He has done two nights swaddle free, which have gone okay. He stirs a few more times during the night, but I only got up once to actually feed him so he will settle back to sleep. So, not too bad and hopefully we get back on track quickly.

A Farm Boy Already

I don't fully understand how this happens, but Gideon already loves the tractor. If he is in the kitchen or the living room and he hears the sound of the tractor, he crawls to the closest window and has a look outside. When he sees it, he often starts drumming on the window sill, so excited. He repeats a little "T" sound, like he is trying to say tractor. He hasn't actually gone for a ride in the tractor, yet. But I think he will be pretty excited to that some day soon.

Storybook Character Day 2016

Today was Storybook Character Day at Joash's school. I tried to make it easy on myself and encouraged Joash to use one of the costumes we have on hand. So, he picked the chef costume and took the book Sam the Chef.  Notice anything about his face? I didn't have time to take a picture before school and we got a call right around lunch time that Joash had a pretty bad fall on the asphalt at school during recess. He was pretty shook up about, so I went to pick him up early today. He seems pretty much his normal self now, so we are not too worried. And of course, school pictures are on the 31st, so we will have to see how well he has healed by then.
