7 quick takes vol. 3

Linking up with Jen at Conversion Diary

1. Sunday was Daniel’s first father’s day, and we will never be able to top it, because he got to autopsy a cow.  One of our cows died suddenly that morning, and the vet decided it would be good to do an autopsy, which was probably the only thing that could have slightly redeemed this sad situation for my husband.  (he is a farmer and agriculture / science teacher/ science nerd :)  He came back from 2 hours of cutting up a cow in the rain raving about how cool it was, and how he and the vet had seen things neither had ever seen in a cow before.  They did not figure out what caused the cow’s death, though…. Anyways, the only way to top this on my husband’s scale of things-that-cause-excitement would probably be to buy him a new tractor.  Maybe on his 50th father’s day.

2. Daniel starts summer break next week!!  I have a whole list of projects.  I’m excited for him to be able to spend some more time with the kiddos, the Babes especially.  He idolizes Daniel, and copies him in any way he can.  It’s really cute.

3.  One of our summer projects has started already—we are building a storage shed in our yard.  This might not seem like a big deal, but I live in a 500 square foot house, so any extra space is precious. The plan is to reclaim the under-the-stairs space currently used for storage, and turn it into a Babes play space/ craft nook for me.  I am super excited.

not my house. sigh.  image from here

4. Our upstairs room is one open 10x20 space.  In that space we have 2 cribs, our bed, 2 shelves, 2 bureaus, 2 clothes racks, a wardrobe, and a bunch of random stuff such as our bikes.  Utility rather then beauty is the theme.  This has not stopped me from pinning a bunch of nursery ideas to my Pinterest board.  A girl can dream. 

5. How is it that my toddler can climb on top of the table in 10 seconds and grab the forbidden cookie without disturbing anything else or making a sound, and yet without fail his elbow knocks over his drink every. single. meal?


Laundry is taking over my life.  At least it is cute.


The Babes got boots to match his hero.  


  1. that pic of Daniel and Babes "comparing" boots is just too cute!
