Winter has set in......
The holidays are over and January is in full swing with weird weather. Not much snow yet, but I feel its coming. The boys are missing being able to be outside everyday and have enjoyed Netflix .....thank goodness for technology:)
Jack wanted to try going to public school so after much prayer and thought, we decided to let him, and as much as I miss homeschooling him, he loves his new school and all the new friends he's met, which makes it easier for me to except.
This is the first year having to feed and water chickens/animals in the cold......water spickets freeze:( what a inconvenience. Making sure the waterers stay unfrozen is another concern.....oh I am already ready for spring! Atleast we will have central air this summer, just got a new furnace and A/C in December!! Heating costs in the country are alot more expensive than in town with city utilities....who knew! Our utility bills are alot higher and we even are on a well! But, I love it, so I pay it and go on:)
Now if we can get some more remodeling done on the house in these winter months we'll be doing good. We have the boys room to finish and then on to the BIG kitchen project.......that will be a major deal. I will make sure to post before , during and after of that.
