Katie and Daddy building the chicken coop

Tried to build a chicken coop this weekend, but got rained out. We went to visit some friends later in the evening and had a great time. Today I tried to lay down for a nap, but Bell woke up as soon as I came in the room. I layed down anyway and when I sneaked a peak at her she was sitting up in her crib! All by herself! She has been sitting if we put her in the position, but she did it all alone today! Then of course she had to show off and pull herself up. I guess we will be moving the matress down a notch. Did not get much done today- it was hot outside and in. Hopefully after dinner we can get started on the coop. It is hard to do farm work alone with three kids, so we wait until daddy gets home to do most of it. Katie is still a huge help around here. Not sure what I would do without her! Hope to see everyone soon :)

Card is modeling his new John Deere apron. He loves to "cook" everything he can get his hands on! I know he looks a bit dirty- he stays that way around here, and he loves it. I often "hose" him off two or three times a day. He usually needs some type of rinsing before he even enters the house. Will keeps reminding me of the book he read awhile back about a boy (true story) and his brothers that were not allowed in the house during the week. They ate and slept on the front porch because they were to dirty to come in. On Saturday nights they were brought in and bathed for church on Sunday and those were the only two nights they slept inside. I am not sure I am ready to go that far yet. Maybe when I have 4 or 5 dirty boys............
Everyone is doing great here. Bell is crawling around and I caught her pulling herself up a few days ago. She now pulls up to standing on everything she can crawl over too. My this is going by so fast! Katie is becoming quite the young lady. Sewing things, washing clothes (we do let her use the washing machine occasionally) , loading/unloading the dishwasher. She is such a help here! We are going to be making a batch of soap soon. We are trying to get some Lye, it has become quite a task as we are finding that most places are not allowed to carry it anymore. We have happend upon two doves (they had an egg, but it got broken) and we are building them a coop today and tomorrow. It will be a chicken/dove coop and we will be getting some baby chicks soon! YEA! We might have 3 less dogs soon- maybe we can teach the chickens to be guard chickens....... Well I am off for now, as usual there are a millon things to get done.
Oh yes, we will going to family camp next weekend. I will try to post some good pictures :)
