I'm so very sorry for the silence as of late - I have been extraordinarily busy with Naturally Cozy, homeschooling and spring cleaning. It seems that I barely have time to breath!
Although the blog has been silent, we have been on the go. Maid Elizabeth and I (along with Sir Knight and the older children on the weekends) have been hiking 3 miles every day. We have gotten faster and faster and plan to add some mileage as our stamina increases. Master Hand Grenade has been keeping the lawn (I use the term "lawn" very loosely) mowed and has been "spring cleaning" outside. We planted two raised garden beds with raspberries and one with various herbs. We are hoping to build a few more beds before it is time to plant, but we will have to see if that comes about.
Master Hand Grenade has been expanding his knowledge base as a Man-in-Training. He and his grandfather built a Z-bar door for our chicken coop and have plans to build a similar door for the children's play house. He also worked on a neighbors lawn mower and, with the help of his dad, got it running and serviced. A project in his very near future is an out-house (complete with urinal!) for our back yard.
Anyway, I'm sorry to have been so lax on posts - please forgive me. I will endeavor to persevere!
