TIme is just slipping by

It seems like time is just slipping away from us. Its already Nov. I have been busy. We have had a good year in football. Our team is the 2009 Undefeated Peewee Champions. Yea. This is a picture of homecoming.PhotobucketPhotobucket
This is the night of the awards ceremony and Dakota getting his trophy.Photobucket
He made the Allstar team and tonight is their last game of the year. He is so excited.
This is Dallas at one of the games keeping his eye on the cheerleaders. Ha!
One night at the games, Dakota is playing his heart out, Im fighting the wind, umbrella and video camera, while Dallas is getting sugar from a girl!!! How funny!
We had a great Halloween. We dont do all the scary stuff for Halloween because that is of Satan and we dont participate. Remember this is just my conviction. If we do anything, we do it with the church and if they dress up its nothing scary or evil. I did let them carve a happy pumpkin for the sake of carving one. Then I used it later for muffins and pie.
I did take them to a festival at another church where some of their friends go and of course they had to engage in a game of football.Photobucket
We had a Christian Magician at our church. I know what your thinking, "black magic". No, this is a christian illusionist who uses this to teach the kids the gospel on their level and catch their attention. He will tell you its not magic. He gave his testimony and we actually had some kids accept Christ this night. Our church was packed with kids and we had Trunk or Treat last. It was awesome. You should have seen some of the things he and his wife makes with balloons. They made a 3D cross. PhotobucketPhotobucketPhotobucket
The leaves and trees are looking so beautiful here. We have been able to get some projects done around the house. We finally got the driveway rocked and smoothed out and a few other places too. We got our big burn pile pushed up to nearly nothing to burn and working on two other big brush piles to get ready to burn. We will do this a little at a time until our whole 22 acres is like we want it. With all the dump trucks and dozers out here, do you honestly think I could keep the boys attention in school? Tomorrow we will be having someone start building our back deck for us, finally. These projects have been a long time coming. And we are so proud.
The boys got some money to spend one day and here is Dallas having a hard time picking out what he wanted.Photobucket
Dakota already had his mind made up what he wanted. He wanted some pants, since hes cleaned out his closet and took out all the things that are too small for him.
I had to find a different method to get Tashas horn buds off. It may take a while and she dont like it, but it had to be done and shell have no pain this way.
I had to use an elasterator bander to put bands on them to cut off the circulation so they will just come off. Then we will go and burn the tips again. Some times not matter how hard you try they will still occasionally be that one that will still grow them. I am having to put a udder support on Tisha because she is not concerned about weaning the baby. But it looks kind of funny when you see a goat about the same size as Momma kneeling down to take a drink> LOL Well see how this works and maybe we will get the milk. Cocoa was the first to go into heat so I took her and had her bred. We should know something in a few weeks if she "took" or not. I hope so. She really needs to have a baby. Tisha is in now, and I cant take her right yet cause we have so much going on at home that I cant get away so I may have to wait til next month. We will still build another kid stall to let the babies in at night.
School is still going great except Dakota has made a few bad grades on tests. One was a History Exam. He was having a bad day and just couldnt remember some answers.Photobucket I have to be tough on them. Just because we homeschool doesnt mean I give out answers, I will not cheat my children of an education. I will help them anyway I can, but they have to use their brain too, cause mines about wore out. LOL I will give him his phone back when he pulls those grades up. Not until. Momma has spoken and it will be so. LOL.Dallas loves to color and draw. He will be starting Karate soon. He is so excited.
We won our Football Allstar game tonight. Now big boy is 7-0 for the season. He earned us a trip to Pizza Hut afterwards. Yea! Daddy was so glad to finally get to see him play since he was out of town all season and didnt get to see any of his games. Granny and Poppa and Scarlett was also there. He played his heart out, while we cheered our lungs out.Ha!
Now it is hunting season. My house has guns ready and hunting clothes ready.Photobucket Dakota has already shot one, a 7 pt buck but they couldnt find it that evening, so first thing next morning they went looking for it but coyotes had found it. He just brought the horns back as a trophy. We are getting the freezer ready for deer.
One day Dallas and  I made pear jelly. Dallas loved squishing the juice out of the pears.Photobucket

About 4dfarms

I am a wife to an amazingly dedicated, devoted, and loyal husband whom God sent to me. I am a mother to two wonderful boys to whom I'd give my life for. Around here we have homeschooled, we farm, garden, hunt, fish and anything else we want to do. Although I do have Rheumatoid Arthritis. Sometimes its hard for me to keep up. If it was not for my husband and two boys, I could not do some of what I do. They really do help me alot. We work together as a team in my home. We try our best to train up our children in the fear and admonition of the Lord. Yea, they slip sometimes and correction has to be made. Thats life. I want so badly to be just like the Proverbs 31 woman. My grandmother did an awesome job of it and Id like to fill her shoes.
