Simple Pleasures

As I was eating my breakfast (or, more like it, brunch!) this morning, I looked out over the backyard and saw the "corn fence" behind us.  It was just such a serene view, with the sunlight highlighting the corn tops, creating just a bit of haze.




I love this time of year!  The craziness of the fair is done

(although we generally enjoy that craziness!),

and the garden isn’t bombarding us yet. 



Just a quiet moment on a quiet morning.



Then I look out a different window (our sunroom has ten!),

and see this sweet picture!






After few more minutes, I see that the little cutie patootie

has sweet-talked his sister into a "big one" push!







This is why I have lots of children!


This is why I homeschool!


This is why I love life on a mini-farm!


I love these quiet, sweet blessings from the Lord!

    I totally agree with you on the many children and homeschooling parts. I pray that God will give us a mini farm someday, but all in His will and His time! My daughters and I love yours and your sweet daughters' blogs!
