This Thanksgiving I have given some thought to the things I am thankful for. I am thankful for many things, but chief among them is my family. In particular I am writing about my daughter.
My daughter is wonderful. She is a very happy child (most of the time) and very active as well. She just turned two and her vocabulary is exploding. Every day it seems she knows a new word.
My daughter makes me excited about the future. Every time I look at her I see a multitude of possibilities. I can't wait to find out what she chooses to do. Her life is like a really good book I can't put down.
Right now she like to climb. Maybe she'll become a professional rock climber. She's very photogenic. Maybe she'll be an actress or model. Both of her parents are smart. Maybe she'll go to college and become a world famous mathematician or astrophysicist. She likes blocks and trains, so maybe she'll be an engineer or architect. Or maybe she will have a smaller life, but one still full of meaning.
One thing is for certain. I can't wait.

What's New

It's been a really long time since I last posted. My daughter is waking up so here is a quick list of what's new.

I finally have rabbits, but, thanks to a mistake, I have two females instead of a male and a female.

I have mini hoop houses on my raised beds.

One of my dogs died.

I have another daughter on the way.

I just got a scholarship for school.

I think that covers the big things. I will make a more detailed post later.
