|The most vibrant, incredibly beautiful, longest lasting rainbow I've ever seen. I love the reminder that our God always, always keeps His promises!|
Praise God for His faithfulness! It has been a crazyamazing (that is my newly invented word) :) couple of weeks!
I love living here in Wisconsin, and I am so grateful for God's faithful provisions. There are many things and people in Iowa that I miss, but it is good, good, good to be together as a family again. I love sitting around the table with a delicious meal, and laughing until I hurt all over. I love the quiet evenings sitting around the fire. I love staying up late, giving Papa a back rub with the lights turned down low, and some relaxing music on the computer. I love getting to know our new home. I love chasing rainbows in the field behind our home. I love climbing the silo to watch an approaching storm, or the sunset. I love to see my brothers having fun in our backyard. I love the challenge of having no kitchen and doing dishes in our bathroom. :) To sum it all up, I love pretty much everything about living here. :) I hope to be posting before and after photos of our new home and some other random stuff, but until then, I have some big news!
God provided Elijah with a deer last week!!!!!! It was so exciting, and he let me do most all of the field dressing. Please don't judge me when I say that it was incredibly fun! :) He shot it in the morning - his arrow went through the deer and then into the ground, and the deer dropped within sight. I was jumping up and down with excitement when he told me that he had gotten a deer. :) So...here are a few photos of the whole process. They're a little bloody, so I hope that you don't mind that sort of thing. :)
Elijah's doe was a yearling, so it was pretty small, but that means that the meat will be more tender. We has our first roast this past Sunday and it was AMAZING!
It was soooo cold without a coat in our freezing weather, but totally worth it!
My personal trainer, brother, buddy, friend, and handsome gentleman. I love him dearly.
