Putting up some food




So now that we are parked for a while we decided to put up some food for the winter. We got some free apples (just a few) and some chicks (they will be grown by snow fall).

We are still in the camper and haven't heard a word about another project. I have been picking up odd jobs here and there to pay the bills. PTL.

Still parked in Franklin, PA

We are still parked at my parents farm, Big Oak Ridge. Still haven't come up with a solid plan for winter yet either. We are talking about ending the travel and buying a house. We talked about just renting someplace for the winter. Just nothing has presented itself yet.

I am finding just enough work to pay the bills. I have tightened up our budget, but its a little harder now.

Things have been going decent. Kids are settled into a school routine pretty well. I have been doing what I can around the farm to help out. The barn is nearly buttoned up for winter, and the old chickens have been butchered and canned. Shelli and my mom did a bunch of canning of apples, pears, and veggies. This will help our food budget a lot through the winter.

Thanks for all your prayers and support as we try to figure out what's next for our family.

Pictures of Stuff we have been doing

Well I thought I would finally post some of the promised pix.

We have been back in Franklin for about a month now. First thing we did when we got back was have a baby shower for my sister and brother in law. The girls did girly stuff and the guys had a corn hole tournament.

The next weekend, Shelli and I went to the Crawford county fair. I took Shelli to see Lady Antebellum in concert the first night it opened, then the next day we took the kids up to see the animals and have some fair food. Towards the end of the day Thing 1 asked a guy walking his horses for a ride and he said yes. So they kids rode about for about 15 minutes in the back of a wagon. Take that you $5 per ride pony guy! 🙂

We have been enjoying ourselves and I have been having work to keep us afloat. God is good.

We went and looked at this house, it needs a ton of work inside. New kitchen, new bathroom (including floors in both), but the price is right, and maybe with a little sweat we could have a nice little place near town.

Anyhow, anyone who misses us and wants to get together, call my cell or my office line.

Long time no post

I have been pretty busy since we got back into Franklin, PA. Hopefully later today I will have time to post some of the pictures of a few of the things we have been doing.
