Life in the country.. in the city
I just have to say how incredibly in love we all are with our little piece of country in the city. We are five minutes from Target, Wal-mart, Market Street, clothing stores, tons of restaurants, a bookstore and various other shops. Yet, we are sitting here on two acres that are connected to at least seven other acres that look out over trees, rolling fields of wildflowers, ponds and an overall view of God's mighty and incredibly creative hand! It is peaceful and quiet and the only sounds you hear are the occasional tractor mowing another piece of land near by. The kind of "country" living this girl was cut out for!! =) Ok, for all my friends who really live in the country... don't make fun of me!! =)
I'm watching my children take turns riding the new (to us... thank you to my dad who hunted down a super deal for us) riding lawn mower with daddy. They love it and I even took a spin around the back half of the property. I know it must be quite a sight watching a 6 1/2 month pregnant momma cruise around on it. =)
I'm taking a break from the outdoors right now while Ben naps to write this post but most likely the rest of the day light hours will be spent playing outside with my amazing family!
BTW, I finally put up a picture of the outside of the house!
