HEY! I'm down on the farm for the week too but no horses - we just dug out a new garden for Gramma with the tractor though.
Clearly, no baby out yet but, Caroline, YOU LOOK GREAT!
I am so happy to see you up and outside. Thank you so much for posting these photos. Buddy looks like a pro - you guys are gonna have a great summer having cut your teeth on winter time. New baby, new life. I am so happy for you.
Wish I was closer, I bring over some meals. Sending my love anywhoo.

I love love love reading your blog and hearing all about your life. Not at all boring for me. Not every day can be up, even the down and the struggles can be inspiring to me to gain strength from the Lord, to pray for you, to see a mom like me learning and loving her family and Saviour, that it isn't all roses, but GOD IS FAITHFUL.
When we are weak, then, and only then, is He strong.
Praying that your baby is born first. :) I wish I could meet you someday.

This verse just came to my mind today

Isa 40:28 Hast thou not known? hast thou not heard, that the everlasting God, the LORD, the Creator of the ends of the earth, fainteth not, neither is weary? there is no searching of his understanding.
Isa 40:29 He giveth power to the faint; and to them that have no might he increaseth strength.
Isa 40:30 Even the youths shall faint and be weary, and the young men shall utterly fall:
Isa 40:31 But they that wait upon the LORD shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint.

earlier in the chapter He says, "He shall gently lead those who are with young"

May the Only One true God be your strength.

Your sister in Christ

So glad you are feeling well enough to be outside enjoying the sunshine. Your house is so beautiful - what a wonderful place to raise your children! Thanks so much for poting these photos and letting us have a glimpse into your life on the farm.

Kella B said...

hurry up little baby!
I have to say, you look great. I love the pics of your house and farm. I am filing them away in my mind so that when we own our own place, it will look as clean and bright and airy as yours does. I love the effect of white walls with timber trim around the doors and skirting.

Jennifer said...

Great pics! We live on a 40 acre "farm" too, but I don't think our adventures are nearly as exciting as yours! Don't you just love the country. :-)

gail said...

Just popped by to see how you're going. Slowly but steady you seem to be getting well again. Love the pics. Take care

Blessings Gail

Catherine Anne said...

What a wondeful blog. Your life is a dream of mine and my husbands. We are moving that way more and more each year. So happy to be following your blog. -http://catherineanne5.blogspot.com/

Esther said...

Are we going amish? The clothes, beard...

I love the idea of off grid...

Nicole said...

I've loved reading your blog and learning about your family's new life. I hope you are feeling a bit better.

Once your little one arrives, everyone will be so excited! Don't feel bad - just take care of yourself and stay healthy.

Warm Regards,
Nicole

Sherry in MI said...

It looks like you are adapting the fashion side of the amish lifestyle - or at least the men in your life are! No more saying, "Hey, you in the blue shirt, come over here!" They'll all come running. HA!

Laurie said...

Love your blog! Thanks for the pics! My family and I are heading to Amish country in PA for a few days of relaxation.
Hope your bundle of joy comes soon!
Blessings,
Laurie

Mount Belly Mama said...

I love the photos you are posting! I so wish I could come and visit you right now!

Kathy said...

I just wanted to say how naturally beautiful you look in this photo. In fact, I had to do a double take. You look very much like my husband's niece, Jenny, who coincidentally married a young man of Amish decent. And the pictures of your home and property are beautiful. How lucky you are to be the caretakers of such a place. I'm sorry that the last weeks of this pregnancy are getting to you. Hang in there and keep thinking of the beautiful babe to come. I will keep you and yours in my prayers. Blessings.

gail said...

Oh that washing on your line looks so good. How are you feeling? I keep popping by each day to see if there is any news.Take care Ang.

Blessings Gail

My Own Terms said...

Great pictures! You look a little refreshed. Must be that good ol' country air. And the header with the laundry hanging out is great. Nothing beats climbing into bed with freshly dried sheets that have been hanging out all day. Mmmmmmmmmmmm

Rhonda Jean said...

Hi Ang! I'm hoping no news is good news and that soon we'll see a picture of you, smiling, with your new babe. Take care.
