Jessie got her cast on today - full length, hot pink. So far it's healing good. 4 weeks in this super long cast, and then 2 -3 weeks in a cast just up to her knee. She broke it good, but it should heal very well. I think we are finally over the worst of the pain - which I am so thankful for (now if she would just sleep through the night again, I would be a wonderfully ecstatic person - hehe).

My seeds have sprouted. All but 7 on the first tray are growing strong.
Tyler has gotten to spend some quality time with Mom.
And after much soul searching and thinking, I don't think I'm going back to office work any time soon. I have several possibilities that have opened up in neighboring school districts and our school district, including substitute teaching, teacher's aid, paraprofessional (I think a fancy name for teacher's aid) and possibly a bus driver. I'm going in to talk to everyone next week - and will decide from there. I have come to realize I don't want an 8-5 Monday through Friday job again - it's just not me. I want to be out with my kids in the summer, working on the farm, growing a huge, kick butt garden and I can hardly do that in an office setting. As I told Todd this morning, I would rather go into a factory and work 3rd shift so I could be home during the day, than go back to a 8-5 job. Funny how I'm figuring out what I want to do at 36 years old!!!
The green around here is AMAZING. Seems like just a couple weeks ago, everything was brown and muddy, and now everywhere I look there's green grass, green hay, and still lots of MUD.
My rhododendron, which has millions of buds on it - I can't wait for it to bloom
Looking out over the horse pasture -
the square of dirt in the background is our little rented cornfield -
the grass next to it is our rented hayfield.
Although there is still a muddy mess in the cattle lot -
although the green behind them is their pasture -
here in another 3 weeks or so they will go out there.
Todd's been working a million hours this week - every night it has been 9 or 10 until he has gotten home, and he's been up and gone by 6:30 in the morning at the latest. And he will work tomorrow and miss Tyler's soccer game:( , but I will video tape all the important parts so he can see it.
And thank you so much to everyone who has left kind comments - I really appreciate each and every one of you. And for those lurkers out there - introduce yourself - it's really fun meeting people from all over, cheering them on and knowing they are cheering us on in our daily doings!!
I hope everyone has a blessed and wonderful weekend - I know I will!!
