Women of Joy

Friday I left with some ladies from Nina's church and Lis to attend the Women of Joy conference in Sevierville, TN! We had a great weekend and got to hear Anita Renfro speak and Chris Tomlin and Christy Nockels led the worship Saturday night!!! I had taken my older camera so I could take few zoomed pictures, but it ended up not working after a few frames. It actually was nice to enjoy the services without snapping pictures! As you know I love taking photos, but sometimes I feel like I miss out on things because my camera is always attached to my eye! I did manage a few iPhone pics though. :)

Our Chickens

We tried to incubate about 27 eggs this spring and we've ended up with 10 healthy chicks. Which is pretty good odds for us! I've been meaning to post these for a while, but it's better late than never.

I loved this one. :o)
Non-chicken related: The girls decided to hunt eggs on the Monday after Easter.

Here are the chicks now:
They're so cute!
These chicks are too!
Our chicken coop that Brian built.
Inside the coop.
The brooder box where the baby chicks stay warm and cozy. We covered the top with a tarp so that the hens and rooster wouldn't roost on top of them.
Here are our grown hens and rooster. George, the rooster, really dislikes me. He even tried to attack me once. I'm still traumatized by it! I'll post a video at the end of this post of him running at me.
This is George, the chick that Aidan named!
We've got them spoiled by feeding them grass and worms. Anna even has them trained...haha!
See watch them follow her!
They'll even do some tricks for an earthworm! Haha!

Without further ado - here is George charging at the hand that feeds him:

Happy Resurrection Day!

Happy Resurrection Day!
Our only hope can come from Jesus in all things!

1 Peter 1:3
"Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ!
In His great mercy He has given us new birth into a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead,"

Trying On History

While Brian was working in his new office tonight he decided to get out his grandfather's WWII uniforms for the girls to try on. They fit Anna really well and were a little big on Holly!

They are holding a picture of Daddy Burnam and a patch from the ship he was on. It's very cool that the girls can wear his uniforms that are almost 70 years old! They are truly trying on history!

Precious to Us

I've got so many things I need to be blogging about, but for now I thought I'd link up with Kelly's Korner SUYL! It's for mom's with all girls to connect.

I've always been very grateful to God for allowing us to raise two girls. We've been homeschooling for the past 4 years and I couldn't imagine not being with our precious daughters every day. It has given Brian and myself a chance to truly know them, not just for a few hours in the evening. Of course, we have our fair share of crazy days, but overall we enjoy our time together very much!
We take plenty of field trips for school and it's nice to be able to go when we feel like it!
We love our girls more than anything!
This is Anna.
This is Holly.
And sometimes we're silly!
Proverbs 22:6
"Train up a child in the way he should go,
And when he is old he will not depart from it."
