Im back

Im sorry I left yall hanging wondering about our families welfare. I left you last with the news of my cousin going on to Heaven. We have since then attended his funeral and got to spend time with family. I hate we got to get together under these circumstances. Funerals should not be family reunions. At least we had a chance to recapture some childhood memories and talk about old times.  This is a picture of all us cousins when we were little then when we were older.  I am the baby of all the cousins and yes their gonna hear this the rest of our lives. lol photo IMG_20140503_171026_652-1_zpsowehcxqg.jpg  photo IMG_20140503_172945_119_zpskn0b9wtm.jpg

He was a paramedic for the hospital in his community. Ive never been to a paramedics funeral and what they did sent chills up my spine. After they played a theme song they had the dispatch call his pager one last time. It said, “This is Marion County 911 dispatch paging medic 47….Marion County 911 dispatch paging medic 47……This is your final call.” then it repeated and said, “Ricky Oliver, thank you for your years of dedication and service to your community”. I had chills up my spine. They let him ride in his ambulance one last time too.  photo IMG_20140502_144054_352_zps3qy8w8a2.jpg  photo IMG_20140502_145503_956_zps8edht3lc.jpg  photo IMG_20140502_155404_690_zpsefio9sup.jpg
His mom and dad were paramedics too. They were a paramedic team and rode an worked together. This is his mom and dad and sisters and brother. My aunt and uncle and cousins.  photo IMG_20140502_154447_917_zps6inx14ez.jpg

People all I can say is, you better spend time with your loves ones while they are here. If you can not go see them or dont live around them, there is also a phone. Please stay in touch. Friends come and go but family will always be there. Hug them tight. Dont ever leave the house without saying I love you or hang up the phone without saying I love you cause you never know. Ricky was on his way to check on his mom and dad during the storm. God just chose this time to call him home. He was being a good son and you just never know what can happen.

We have had a chance to get some projects done around the farm. I fianlly got Missy moved to her new spot. She is loving all her space. photo IMG_20140503_131348_042_zpsz1ixgjoy.jpg  photo IMG_20140508_090926_661_zpso4wyrtth.jpg

I got a big surprise one morning when I looked out my window down to the pasture. I saw feathers everywhere. I went down to the pasture and saw a massacre. I was dealing with a opossum. All I have left now is a rooster, three hens and one duck. Ive got to replenish my flock. One hen is sitting on a nest of eggs and Im hoping she hatches some. She has tried for the last few years to try to sit on some eggs but every time she gets off to get some water or something to eat someone goes and pecks the eggs open. Now, I have her in the stall now by herself with a nice nesting box. We will see what happens. I am ready for some little chicks. I want to get me a homesteading package from McMurray Hatchery. It has laying hens, a few ducks, a few geese  and a few turkeys. I just want something small this year then next year I may get back into hatching some next year.

The boys and daddy have worked hard. They laid sod in the front yard. photo IMG_20140505_120431_682_zpsbccxnaun.jpg  photo PhotoGrid_1399157536777_zpstnwf950g.jpg

David has got a little momma wren sitting on a nest in one of his rose bushes. photo IMG_20140505_131239_111_zpszhszzy4n.jpg  photo IMG_20140504_183304_246_zpsfu5xoluc.jpg

We also had two new storm screen doors put on and a new back door. I love them.

Dakota is fixing to be out of school. They are taking EOC;s which is end of course tests. We use to call them finals. Boy, have things changed. He thinks hes going to like this new coach. Summer football practice is fixing to start. Daddy told Dakota that he would let him start driving by himself to football practice and work this summer. Well, time has snuck up on us and I dont think daddy is ready for this. Do you ever get over the fear of letting the apron strings loose? Im a nervous wreck and he hasnt even started yet.  I have to confess that I have a fear. Im a mom, Im scared. Im just going to have to pray about it and put it in Gods hands.

Me and Dallas will be finishing up some time this month. He just finished his last book report and is so excited.

I hate it when my kids do not want my help. It breaks my heart. I want them to need me. however i am glad they are independent and try to figure out circumstances on their own. Does this mean their not going to make mistakes? Nope and i know this. They are going to make mistakes. It is my prayer that they learn from them and not make the same mistake again. If they keep making the same mistake over and over then that means its become a habit and they have gotten use to it. Then i will have to pull the momma card on them. My job as their mother doesnt end just because they turn a certain age. I will always be their mother.

 

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.
