Green Meadows Farm

Hello again.  No, we haven’t fallen off the face of the earth.  Yes, like the rest of you, we’ve been crazy busy.  And somehow busy has won versus the blog lately.  The latest…Jude is recovering from croup.  Sweet little thing has not been feeling well.  Our normally happy easy-going guy has been miserable with a capital M…melting down into a heap of sobs anytime he was not in his mommy’s arms.  During the middle of all of that Ben woke up one morning with what appeared to be a spider bite on his ankle.  The ankle continued to grow larger and LARGER until finally we decided it was time to take him to the doctor.  Thankfully, the doctor assured us that the bite wasn’t infected.  We’re learning that with a little cortisone cream and a whole lot of TLC, the bite and Ben are both doing much better.  So, all that to say, I’m happy to report we are alive and (almost) well! 

Over the past several months we’ve shared lots of fun times with our friends and family.  So please, bear with me as I play a little catch-up on the blog…first up, Ben’s first field trip!  At the end of October last year my friend Christy S. watched Jude (thank you, Christy!!) while Ben and I met up with some friends from his preschool at a place called Green Meadows Farm.  We spent the majority of the day with Ben’s buddy Will, his mommy Jen and little brother Alex.  From corralling ducks, playing with pigs, riding the train, trotting on a pony, milking a cow to cruising on a tractor drawn hayride, we had a blast and we. were. exhausted!  For the first 30 minutes of the hour-long drive home Ben rambled on and on about complete nonsense before giving in to the exhaustion and finally falling asleep.  Here’s a little visual recap of the day…

  1. What a fun field trip! Joanna, he is just the most precious thing. I wish we lived closer to you. I know Jackson and Ben would be the best of buds. The photos of him standing in front of that blue tractor are adorable. He looks so little! That’s great that you could spend some QT with just Ben. Praise the Lord for sweet friends who watch our little ones for us every once in a while! The slideshow/video montage was great and I loved the song choice! Does Ben like watching it? I know Jackson would!
