Who Are These People?

Who are we and what are we doing?
Hmmm... Sometimes I gotta stop and remind myself of who I am and what my mission is. Ya know, because sometimes it is easy to get lost in the day to day business of life on the farm. Especially, homeschooling life on the farm!

My husband always says: "Too much of anything is not a good thing."  And he's absolutely right. Balance is the name of the game here. We try our best for equal parts: husband and wife time, family time, school time and farm time. Are we perfect? Of course not and sometimes we have to combine family time with get-the-yard-cleaned-up-time-so-we-can-have-a bonfire-and-roast-marshmallows-time, or bring-in-the-wood-so-we can-stay-warm-family-time. Sometimes we get really lopsided with too much work and the kids remind us ever so repetitively, we need more family play time! 

So who are we? Besides that my name is Carie and I'm almost forty.... And my husband is Mike and he's over forty...and we have a couple of kids ages 5 and 8....
Well, first and foremost we are followers of Jesus. 

Our main mission? To live a life that brings glory to God. Simple right? Simple, but not easy...

And we are doing it on a farm with chickens and turkeys to feed, lizards to catch, dogs to wrestle with, mud to cake-on, cattle to care for, goats for entertainment, frogs to catch, trees to climb, worms for fishing, grasshoppers to play with... Well you get it... loads of dirty laundry, messy floors, weedy garden, goats to milk, eggs to collect, dinner to cook, grass to mow, endless fence projects, stuff to fix, and we can't forget about the cat to pet...The list seems endless.... But, it's what we like and I wouldn't have it any other way!!
