Could You Be a Firefighter?
    The other day someone made a joke about Sam and his job at the firehouse. They commented that he gets paid big bucks to sleep, watch TV all day, and make chili. I just let the comment pass, but it has been bugging me ever since. So now that I have had t...

Happy Father's Day
Father's Day is tomorrow and I never know what to get dad. Not just on Father's Day, but any holiday that implies something must be gifted: birthday, Christmas, etc. What do you buy the guy that has everything? Two years ago for his birthday we set him up w...

Learn By Doing Day 2016
Learn By Doing Day was so much fun! We had surprise attendees come all the way from Madison, CT and some of our animals were not cooperating with our planned schedule. So we did what 4-H teaches us to do: get flexible and go with the flow! The weather was c...

Bittersweet Moments
A bittersweet weekend as we closed a chapter in our lives. On Sunday we participated in our last goat show: The ADGA show at the Big E. It was pretty incredible to see how much our breeding program has contributed to goats in New England as we saw goats fro...

My Kids Aren't Perfect (Shocking, I know!)
My kids. I love 'em, but they aren't perfect. My kids are pretty good kids (if I do say so myself), but I'll be the first to tell you that they are not always good. They lie, cheat, steal, get angry, hit, are lazy, etc. etc. You get the idea. Usually my kid...

A New Direction!
Last year we decided to sell our herd of goats and take a break from that part of our farm to concentrate on our Maple syrup production. With all the crazy stuff that has happened in our family since last October, when the last goat left, we know the Lord w...

Being Tough
There is a saying in the fire department: "If you think being a firefighter is tough, try being a firefighter's wife." Being a firefighter's wife can be the most fun, truly exciting, and best thing in the world. My husband is respected and celebrated. He is...

On the Verge...
For the last few months Sam and I have been feeling like we are standing on the edge. Like we are on the verge of something. A lot of changes have been happening in our home over the last year: Abby gets married in less than a week, Nathalie graduated colle...
