We got even more snow this morning!! I think it is getting old, but it is pretty. It is causing some hardships here on the farm--such as getting hay and wood. Our chickens are refusing to lay, but one duck is giving me an egg each week. I believe they are striking for warmer weather. They refuse to leave their coop where they have a heat lamp on.
Yesterday we had another homeschool family from church over and the men worked together getting hay and wood, while us gals stayed here at the house (in the warmth) and made some potato soup and grilled cheese. The kids played games on the Wii. We had a lot of fun. There are still some public schools closed for tomorrow, although the county is starting to get the gravel roads in the rural area cleaned off now.
If you are in the St Joseph MO area, here are some upcoming classes for you.
