December has been filled with lots of fun and adventure here at Two Moose Farm. From a new birth to an outing with our homeschool group its been quite busy.
Little Henrietta made her appearance on the 21st. She ha thrived and is now showing signs she is her fathers daughter by head butting everyone and everything in site. Her frolicking antics were wearing on her momma and another goat so her into the house for a little play time and she spent a few minutes running from one to another of us for head pats and scratching that were promptly rewarded with a little show of kicking up her heels.
Winter has yet to hit here in Alaska but we did get a few inches of snow. The kids quickly built a snowman before the rain resumed and eliminated it.
Christmas this year has been so full of blessings from friends both near and far. Cathy, Tracy, Ken, Steve and Trudy you all made it a very joyous Christmas and I am thankful but I am blessed even more so to be able to call you my friends.
I have to share this with you all. I have a dear friend Cathy who I want all to know is my inspiration. She has lived an exciting life and is facing health problems but is always there when I need a friend to talk to, am having one of those days we all dread and when I am so excited over something one of the kids have done (both 2 and 4 legged) she is always happy to hear about it, She just gets it! If you are just starting a new homestead I strongly suggest having someone like her to encourage you when the rest of the world just thinks you are totally nuts!
Our children work very hard out here between school work and chores. Homeschooling with Mom as your teacher doesn’t mean there is any slack time but it also has its rewards. Here are a few pics of the kids’ first time ice skating
I apologize for the quality but its the best I could do.
As 2014 winds down I am so glad I have been blessed with all he adventures and that my family is by my side daily. Together we are building memories that will last a lifetime.
