Dylan "Decorated" The Door-Step For Me :)
This year the weeks are speeding by so fast, that I can hardly keep up. One minute it is Friday and then it feels as though just two or three days has gone by, and it's Friday again! One reason for our schedules being crazier than usual, has been the addition of a daily milking time. It takes extra long at present, as our cows are having to be moved about so they have plenty of grass (not much at the moment, due to the lingering cold weather), this means that several of them need to be herded through fields before being milked at the shed. Dylan and I can normally manage well by ourselves, but then there are days when the cows are being extra naughty and things don't run as smoothly as I'd like! We hope to have things better organized, as the warmer weather arrives, and that should speed up the time it takes to get our daily milk.
I have come to LOVE my time milking our cows (yes, we are milking TWO now)! It is such a nice, calming activity and very rewarding too. Our family is feeling healthier already, with the addition of raw milk to our diets. Meg especially loves to drink "Daddy's Bu-Ah!".

Our schooling is going well, Dylan has finished his SECOND K5 math book of the year and is nearing the end of his reading curriculum. Such a hard worker! As you might remember, Amy is behind on her school somewhat, because we switched out her curriculum four months into the school year. This means that Amy is working VERY hard at present, in order to try and finish her books before the school year is ended. But she is doing great so far and hopes to be finished by the end of July/August. She may not get a lot of time off before the new school year begins, but she will make sure to enjoy every second of her summer break.
Miss Meg has FINALLY begun to talk properly! She has been our slowest child at doing...just about everything. It is not that she cannot do things, but just that she won't! She and Dylan are having the best time playing together now that she is a little older and can communicate more. Firecracker Meg definitely loves rough, loud games best!
