10 free hours of daycare.  Utilizing the resource for the three-est in th crew and let me tell you, the water is fine.

180 milkings later we are giving back Sorrel, our borrowed Jersey.  It has been a summer filled with butter, and surely that alone makes it worthwhile.

8 trips around the sun for this sweet cider making dude.  I just lowered his ears yesterday and you wouldn’t recognize him, he looks so big.

7 hours of grown up time at Free Verse Farm making this amazing Adirondack pack basket.  Not shown are the lovely mossy green straps and the soon to be stained version.  It really is a useful and fun way to cart around all these wild apples!

2 full weeks of a schedule filled with crafting and chalkboards and math games and romping in the woods.  Not back to school is pretty sweet so far.

12 months of slow, methodical, brick laying.  My anticipation for the finishing of the outdoor bread oven cannot be contained.  But contained it must be!  This is nothing to be rushed, and let’s be honest, squeezing in time for mixing cement isn’t an exactly an easy task for a father of four children.  But, this guy is doing it- little by little!
