Few are as enterprising as Abigail. Two days after the devastating January earthquake in Haiti, Blare saw a little boy crying in a pile of rubble on a newscast. The story brought him to tears. At school, his teachers let him announce his plan over the PA system and ask other kids to donate bears. Charlie, 11 at the time, was so affected by this, she immediately decided to send them fleece blankets, creating one from a kit and inviting friends to make some, too. Soon the sixth-graders and other volunteers in her town had crafted 50 blankets to ship.
The orphanage sent back a photo of a child with one of the gifts. Still, she was pumped to do more. Want to get your state on board? All you have to do is drop Charlie a note at blanketswithlove yahoo. How many boys get excited about school supplies on sale?

Their goal this year: We were truly blessed during our time of need and I will share the story in it's entirety when I have had the time to completely think about all I want to say.
Another amazing blessing was the extra land that we have been able to purchase for the use of pasture for our horse and more horses as well! I'm sure that Rose and Sarah will be snapping pics of all of our extended family members as soon as I give them the go ahead.

He did such a great job that we bought him a little Jersey bull calf to care fr over the next year. His name is Reese's Fitting since the other calf looks like he might end up becoming a permanent fixture around here. All of the rabbits that we bred began producing abundant litters! I think we ended up with around 40 babies! Anyway, we have picked out the cream of the crop and are selling off the rest! The same neighbor that we're cow-sitting for plowed our garden for us!
Then Abbie helped Daddy plant tomatoes and peppers!!!! This is from breakfast this morning. The day was so beautiful that I couldn't stay inside!
