The Easter Bunny!
Merry Christmas! Hope you all are having a wonderful holiday season!
Christmas Eve service was very beautiful, only causing me to tear up 7 or so times, ha!
And the service featured my absolute favorite Christmas hymn,
Once in Royal David’s City
Once in royal David’s city,
Stood a lowly cattle shed,
Where a mother laid her Baby,
In a manger for His bed:
Mary was that mother mild,
Jesus Christ, her little Child.
He came down to earth from heaven,
Who is God and Lord of all,
And His shelter was a stable,
And His cradle was a stall:
With the poor, and mean, and lowly,
Lived on earth our Saviour holy.
For He is our childhood’s pattern;
Day by day, like us, He grew;
He was little, weak, and helpless,
Tears and smiles, like us He knew;
And He cares when we are sad,
And he shares when we are glad.
And our eyes at last shall see Him,
Through His own redeeming love;
For that Child so dear and gentle,
Is our Lord in heaven above:
And He leads His children on,
To the place where He is gone.
And the main event…
Monarchs are my favorite!
The end of the year festivities at Forest school included a project culmination; the kids planned and cooked a meal entirely outdoors for the parents. After the delicious meal we had:
Their semester-long project was a great success. Construction also continues at Forest school and I wanted to share a shot of these cool signs they added to the construction fences:
In other construction news, we are nearly done with the chicken coop!
Greatest chicken coop name ever, right?! Quite apropos as the chickens (well, at least the building the coop part) has usurped our lives! Plus we love a good revolution, are are always generally dissatisfied by the status quo AND are all quite rebellious in nature. So the name is just perfect!
There will also be an “Eggsit” sign on the inside of the door. HAHAHAHAHAhaha
More pictures to come of the coop details once it is totally finished (still need to build the run). The chickens are loving their new home and I am just thrilled to have them out of the house!
We have also taken more trips to the barn to visit our friend’s horses…
Giving Dexie a run for her money in the good looks department, right?!
Happy Monday! Hope your week is off to a good start!
