June goodness

Rhubarb Crisp in the makings. It was sooooo good.

My woolies!

Jason and I went canoeing with the boys.

...and Isabella took out the kayak.

Jason made masks with the boys one afternoon. Here is Jude's.

And here is Ollie's! What a long face for a four year old!

Chicken aprons in the works.

We spotted this lady-turtle laying eggs on our friend's beach.

And this rabbit was in the yard!

Our days have been filled with kids and gardens, chickens, sheep, and the making of food. We are tired as we are every spring and summer, the busiest times of the year, but it is a good tiredness; A satisfied, long-day-spent-working-at-something-you-love kind of tiredness!

From May to June

Our beautiful old apple tree in bloom behind the barn.

Our front flower garden in early spring. The Forget-me-nots are plenty!

Two boys in one pair of pants and one shirt, stuck on the floor!

Spring fashion!

Lots of pumpkin pies, gluten free and vegan, made from half of one of our Jarrahdale pumpkins.

Jason and his Dad chatting in the kitchen :) His parents made their annual drive up to visit us for a week from Pennsylvania in early May. It was a lovely visit!

 Gramma Carol reading Uncle Remus to the boys :)

Ollie made Gramma Carol and Grampa Tony a handful of beaded bracelets each in the weeks before their visit and was delighted to finally gift them :) Here he and Gramma Carol are making yet another one!

Cutie on the deck!

This was taken a month ago now when our seedlings were hardening off outside the greenhouse. They are all in the ground now!

The smiliest of my adorable smilers. This sweet wee ewe is the shyest of the lot, and it took a whole month for her to let me pet her.

Big love!

Our adorable ram lamb, Stillwater.

Wolfie! She has the wildest and wooliest face :)

Jude is a bird whisperer. He really is. He loves birds so much, and will sit still for a long, long time and wait for the chickadees to eat out of his hand. Chickens, ducks, songbirds; He loves them all! I was delighted to find a special birdseed mix that had no gluten in it (he has celiac), so he could feed them himself!

We have a family of barn swallows inside the barn, and on the side of the lamb building. Our German friend told us that if you have swallows in your barn, it is very good luck :)

Our wonderful little homestead. We love it so!

Jason has begun replacing the plastic on the greenhouse with old windows. I LOVE love love it!

Jason gardening in May
