Hard to believe, but it’s been well over three years since I’ve kept up with the blog. Life kind of turned on at warp speed for a while (our second son, Mathias, not-so-coincidentally turned 3 in May) and blogging just became hard. But, the pace of life is feeling a little slower now so I’m going to attempt to revive the blog as there are some great radical homemaking adventures happening that I want to share!
So what has happened since the last blog post?
We built a new chicken coop…(March 2012)
And spread the love of backyard chickens by getting involved in local organizing to ensure it remained legal to keep chickens…
And welcomed, Mathias, our second child into the world….(it was a whirlwind! Hopefully I can share his birth story sometime) May 2012
And grew together as a family of four…
And grew other things….
And these boys…well they just kept growing too…
And we moved to a ranch in the Black Hills (2013)….
And because of Murphy’s Law ended up moving back to our old house 3 months later!
End of the trail for that adventure.
I trained with DONA International to become a birth doula and started on my birth work journey. (Fall 2013)
And the next June (2014) we witnessed two milestones. Celebrating our 10 Year Wedding Anniversary…
And losing our sweet Reuben dog at the age of 10.
And the boys just kept on growing! (Here they are with some “cheep” entertainment)
And we took trips as a family….
And in Jan 2015 I left my job as a community organizer to build my doula business and spend time more time at home with the boys.
And this summer (2015) the boys turned 3 and 5…how can it be?
But despite the business we took a lovely vacation to CO and saw some old friends…
And currently we are just settling into Fall with a recent trip to the apple orchard with our local homeschool collective (more on that new adventure soon!)
What a whirlwind! Thanks for this little trip down memory lane. I’ll admit I’m a little misty-eyed looking at all of these photos. But we’re all caught up now so I’ll be posting more regularly now! Look for updates soon.
