I’ve missed this little space of mine. Life with three boys has been a little…well…WILD. With Joel being so busy on the farm (fall is his busiest time of year) and all of us adjusting to our new rolls in this growing family (some having a harder time with that adjustment than others), sometimes I get a little overwhelmed with this task God has given me. Overwhelmed because it’s crazy hard some days and overwhelmed because I am crazy blessed. Three boys, who would have thought?! So after taking a break from this little blog (not even on purpose) it is hard to know where to pick it back up again. That in itself is overwhelming and makes me just want to close my laptop and go find a place to hide. I’m sure the boys would find me in five seconds though. Haha.
Most days I wonder if I should even keep writing here, if the season of this blog is over and there are more important things I should be doing. And while there are definitely days that is true and things have changed, I keep hearing God remind me that he is still teaching me so much…and that is what I need to write down and share. Not because this blog is really that great, but because He deserves all the glory for the things He is doing in my family. I want to continue to proclaim what the Lord has done and continues to do…whether that be in my home, to my friends, to strangers I meet at the grocery store, or on this blog. And this is a place that I can do just that.
So, because I really don’t know where to pick up from since the last time we talked, here are a few things we have been up to lately…
Jake is growing so fast…which reminds me, I need to post his three month photo…right after I actually remember to take it. He is the sweetest, most easy going baby. He has rolls like you wouldn’t believe but that just makes you want to squeeze him more. I could snuggle him all day.
I am not the only one who loves to snuggle Jake. I often hear one of the boys asking if they can hold Jake. They love him. We all love him.
And while Jake is taking up a lot of our time lately, we have been up to a few other things…the boys have been saving the world in our backyard, Levi learned to ride a bike, Jake went for his first tractor ride, Griffin finally got out for some fresh air after being sick with pneumonia (no fun!), Daddy and Uncle Owen put up a new-to-us swing set, we went to the state fair, the boys have been logging in plenty of tractor time, we’ve been getting ready for fall, and we celebrated Griffin’s third birthday.
I have lots more to share and I’m sure I will get caught up in time. So keep checking back every once in awhile. In the meantime I will keep lovin’ on these sweet boys of mine…and when I have a few free moments (does that ever happen with three boys?!) I will keep writing about our crazy life on the farm. I will consider the great things God continues to do in my little family. And I urge you to do the same!
But be sure to fear the Lord and serve him faithfully with all your heart; consider what great things he has done for you.
