All Around the Home and Homestead Blog Party #13

Happy Monday, friends! I hope you had an enjoyable weekend. In our neck of the woods the temperature has finally dropped a bit, so it actually feels like winter. For the last couple of weeks it has felt like spring. I'm hoping we get some snow soon too. Winter isn't my favorite season but a couple of snowstorms are nice. The kiddos really want to go sledding and build a snowman and the one snowfall we had so far was pitiful.

Our weekend was filled with family and filling our freezer. My grandmother was in town visiting and it was wonderful to be able to spend time with her since we don't get to see her very often. It was very sweet to watch her love on her great-grandbabies. We also butchered another lamb for our freezer. We have an excess of hay this year so we haven't been in a rush to get all of the lambs processed. This was our third one and we still have two left to go. It has been nice to spread it out since butchering, while rewarding in some respects, is also emotionally-draining. Taking a life is not an easy decision and we are very thankful for the sustenance the animal will provide for our family.

In case you missed the news....  I am excited to announce I will now be co-hosting the All Around the Home and Homestead Blog Party with Jennifer from Faithful Homestead. Head on over and check out her blog. She is another homesteading homeschooling mama and her blog has a wealth of information.

The Blog Party will take place every Monday. Check out what others are up to and add your own link below.
