Christian Way Farm

We had such a great time yesterday with our homeschooling group. We went to a local pumpkin patch/petting zoo. It's an annual trip for our group and every year Evan looks forward to it. When we first arrived is was cold and rainy, but the weather cleared up, and by the afternoon it was 70 degrees and sunny.
His favorite thing to do there is to shell corn the old fashioned way. I told Glen we should get him a corn sheller and he could shell our field corn we have planted for the deer. I think that would keep him busy for awhile!

 We went for a ride out to the pumpkin patch to pick a pumpkin. There is a tractor pulling the wagon.
I am not sure how my friend's daughter managed to do this! It sure kept them busy on the ride back to the farm.
He really needs a haircut, but he is insisting that he likes it longer.

He will forever be a cat person.
This kitten is pretty cute. #dogsarebetter

This is my favorite part of the trip every year. The lady who owns the farm always takes a pumpkin and tells us a story with it. She talks about how we are like pumpkins and that God comes and cleans out all the yucky in us and gives us a new heart. I always get teary eyed when I think about God's grace and how undeserving I am of it.

They fired up a corn sheller that is powered by a tractor and all the kids got to go put an ear of corn through it and watch. They gave the kids the shelled corn to go and feed the animals with.

Yes, he asked if we could have one and the answer was "no."

Evan is so special. He just is. God made him to be loving, sensitive, and very funny. Although his sense of humor does get him in trouble with mom sometimes, even I can appreciate sarcasm at it's finest. 
My friend's little boy trying to hold the kitten. At one point he was carrying it upside down but every time I tried to get the camera out and take a picture he would drop the kitten.

A picture of a baby goat just for the cuteness factor.
Now this was the highlight of Evan's day. He loves to play golf on the wii but has never played for real. He played mini golf for the first time and has not stopped talking about it since.
After the farm trip, I stopped by a friend's house who called the other day and said she had some clothes for me to go through. Since I recently lost more than 20 pounds, I have been needing some new clothes. I am frugal when it comes to buying clothes and usually shop second hand. I was excited to go through them. We always love to chat with each other and her family is pretty neat too. Well let me tell you...I practically got a brand new wardrobe! My favorite is a grey sweater dress. Glen has a work dinner on Thursday night and I knew I needed to go and buy something a little nicer than what I own but I just didn't want to spend the extra money. I am thinking my black boots and black leggings with colorful accessories. We are on a mission to be debt free as soon as possible! I believe that God is honoring that decision and still choosing to bless me through a friend with free clothing!


  1. You should have enough room on the 100 acre wood to put in a mini golf course for Evan!!!!

  2. Good idea, Allison! Do you want to fund it?
