"Sharing" The Work

Uncategorized Jun 27, 2021
 
I love having a large family. And most of the time, so do the children.
 
One of the best parts of having so many siblings is that there is usually somebody around to help with the workload.
 
So why is Fletcher carrying the bench all by himself... while Emery follows behind?
 
You'll have to watch the video to find out!

Rainbow over the Farm

Uncategorized Jun 26, 2021
 
Are you good at taking the time to stop and appreciate nature? I hope so because the beauty of a rainbow should never grow old! 
 
We've always worked hard to teach the children to appreciate the wonders of nature. 
When we spotted this beautiful rainbow in the backyard, we called the children to come and share it with us. I love how excited they were during this video.
 
Taking time to appreciate a beautiful rainbow is an important part of life. I hope whatever we are doing, we always pause to enjoy it.
 
After all, rainbows are a symbol of one of God's promises. They're meant to be a reminder and to also be enjoyed!

Pregnant Nigerian Dwarf Goats

goats Jun 25, 2021
 

Our goats are a part of our family.

As you can tell, Greyden knows each and every one of them by name and points each of them out as they hang out in the field one afternoon.

They are due in about a month and the anticipation of new baby goats is starting to build!

Are you looking forward to the new kids?

Raspberries in the Garden

garden Jun 24, 2021
 

We've lived at our farm for about 8 years. And every year, I save up some money so that I can expand and improve on our gardens.

This year, our garden has been getting a major addition.

During construction, we had to remove the raspberries from where they were and then "store" them while the new beds were built.

As a result, the raspberries have been transplanted twice.

Some of the raspberries have handled the transition well... and some haven't.  

Find out if we have been able to harvest any raspberries this year!

Taking the Pigs for a Walk

Uncategorized Jun 23, 2021
 

I love living in the country. There is always something new to learn about the land or animals.

We were enjoying dinner at a friend's farm the other night. They keep 4H pigs for some of the local young people who can't keep pigs at their own homes.

After dinner, the pigs went out for a walk!

I'll be honest, I've never seen that before so I filmed it and asked some of the questions that I was curious about.

I hope you enjoy learning some basics about 4H pigs!

Packaging the Orders

Uncategorized Jun 22, 2021
 

At Goat Milk Stuff, we promise that orders that come in each work day by 2pm will ship out the same day.

We chose that time because our second mail pickup usually occurs between 3pm and 4pm.

But on this day, the mail lady arrived for pickup around 2:30!

We all rushed to get the orders finished so they would get on the mail truck in time.

Do you think we made it? (Or do you think she left before we finished?)

Making Their Own Lunch

recipe Jun 21, 2021
 

Early on in my motherhood career, I realized something quite profound.  And it was this...

I did NOT want to have to do everything!

And so I set out to teach my children at a very young age how to take care of themselves.

One of the earliest skills they mastered was learning how to make food for themselves. It started out simple with peanut butter & jelly sandwiches and then progressed to scrambled eggs and then to full-blown meals with veggies.

On the day of this video, Indigo and Jade decided not to join me for my broccoli salad lunch.  Instead, they decided to make one of their favorite wraps. It's quite simple if you have all the ingredients (including already cooked chicken).

Directions for Southwest Chipotle Chicken Wraps:

  1. Spread jalapeno chevre (or other spreadable cheese) on a tortilla.
  2. Add hot slices of chicken.
  3. Top with shredded lettuce, diced tomatoes, and diced onions.
  4. Add Hidden Valley Chipotle ranch dressing.
  5. Roll up and serve

Enjoy!
