Outdoor School!!

The kids and I are so tired of being cooped up inside because of cold weather!  As soon as we saw the sunshine today we all knew that school was going to be outside!  I love that we have this freedom!!
 Natalie picked lots of dandelions while Wyatt finished his work.

Mason spent his school time in the dirt!

Fun With Friends

We got to hang out with some of our friends not long ago, and I'm pretty sure it was the first gorgeous day of Spring!  It's really funny that our kids aren't close in age but play together so well!!  

 Mason loved the goats!  Of course, he called them cows.
 Natalie and McKenna picking gorgeous flower-weeds!
 The "big boys" feeding the goats!  I love that there is a 4 year age difference in them, yet they have a great time together!

 Natalie worked hard to pull these two around!

A beautiful surprise we found while cutting flowers!

Rain, Rain. and more Rain!

We had some serious rain hit really fast today--I don't know that I've ever seen this much water in our area!
We normally have a small stream with a few inches of water.  Today we have a rushing river.  I wouldn't let the kids come out to look because I didn't want to take the chance of them falling in!
 This is from our side...the water is at the top of the bank. That bank has a 5-6 foot drop!!  CRAZY!
There has been a lot of flooding and damage around us.  I am so very thankful that we didn't have anything more than this (and some water under our house but I think that will be okay!).
