The calendar may say it's spring, but here in Ohio we know that spring means we are in for a roller coaster ride.
This weekend we were at the top with warm sunshiny days. It reminded us that spring really is here and summer is right around the corner.
We are seeing everything come to life and it gives new energy and hope for things to come.
The grass is starting to green up. We still have a long way to go, but the warmer temperatures and sunshine this weekend made a huge difference. It won't be long before we have the mowers out.
Daisy is really slowing down these days and only does what she wants when she wants. She doesn't follow us around like she used to, but she enjoys soaking up the sunshine and keeping an eye on all the action.
Sylvie is full of life and rarely stops long enough for a picture.
She must be on the hunt for a mouse.
The flowers are making their appearance.
And the chickens are keeping us fed.
Nash is growing so fast.
He loves to be outside...we just need to figure out how to let him be a farm dog while staying clean enough to be a house dog.
Things are starting to dry up in the barn yard...for now.
This is Ohio after all, so the mud will return at any time.
We spent spring break bringing in loads of gravel. We may not be able to keep the cows out of the mud, but we can now keep ourselves and the equipment on solid ground.
We took a few moments to enjoy the warmth of spring and took a walk in the woods.
Daniel stumbled upon this cabin with his Grandpa when he was young. It has been at least 20 years, but he remembered the spot.
It's not the same as it was back then.
It echoes of times gone by...
Who lived here?
How did they get back here so far off the beaten path?
What stories do these broken down walls hold?
With each winter comes a new spring. Life begins a new as we put the past behind us...
Looking forward to what is yet to come.
