Last year, we moved a quarter mile down the road from the farmhouse we had lived in for seventeen years. The house we moved to was the house my great-grandparents built as their retirement home. All of us love the house and though it can be a bit inconvenient to walk a quarter mile to do animal chores, we like it here.
We are surrounded on three sides by a beautiful cedar swamp. It's quite a change to be living in the woods! At our old house, we had shade trees, but other than that we were surrounded by fields and buildings.
Dad has big plans for grooming the woods into a park like atmosphere. He and the boys got a start on that a few evenings ago, with Lydia's help, while Mom tried out her new grill on the deck(my personal favorite part of the house) and we enjoyed supper outside. I was behind the camera :)
I wanted to share a few pictures of the evening. I know it's not photo Friday, but I do have a favorite...I just love the first picture :) Levi hard at work burning brush and Seth perched in the tree trimming branches.
