Spring in Texas 2018 Edition. . . .


When the Bluebonnets start popping up it means Spring has arrived in Texas.  Every year we take a day to drive The Bluebonnet Trail in Ennis Texas; we take in the beautiful views, gawk at all the wild flowers, and even stop to say hi to a few horses and a donkey.  

I love this tradition of ours.  We talk about our kids, goals, hobbies, animals, work, and we always come home feeling inspired and renewed.  As with any job, even the cool ones I'm sure, day after day at the work bench can become tiresome.  Joseph can get so lost into his projects that he forgets to eat (weird), but I feel rather stir crazy if I have to stay home day after day.  Traditions like these have become a kind of life-line for me.    

Bright and early this morning our sweet Mable gave birth! We have a new sweet baby girl on the homestead; nothing is sweeter than baby lambs hopping around the yard in Spring.
