One Big Adventure
An opportunity to log in some of the thoughts and activities of our homeschooling family of eight. We love books and good food and aspire to a Christ-centered, multi-generational, agrarian life.

Monday we closed on our land and we are officially landowners again. We are alternately excited and overwhelmed. Joey, who sold us the land, is very generously clearing it and coaching us through these early stages of preparing the land (and ourselves) for building. As I type, Vern and Owen are over at the land, measuring some things to decide where we should put our new home.

Tomorrow (Thursday) James will need to return to Atlanta for a visit to Dr. Keller. He has had a rough go of it since the last chemo. It has been worse in some respects and better in others. The mucusitis seems to be lasting longer than the previous two times and he is drooling like crazy. His shirts get soaked with drool and the dressingn over his new Hickman needs to be replaced every other day, instead of once of week. I am very grateful, though, that all the flushes for is Hickman have been picture perfect and it seems to be in fine shape, PTL. Tomorrow they will probably use it to draw James' labs.

We had a wonderful downpour of rain yesterday and it sounds like another just started. The grass is turning lush and green and the chickens are loving it. Turkeys are in the brooder having a grand ole time!

Hope all is well with you and yours. We still love to hear from you.

Love, Stephanie
