Life in the woods! Making do!

This is our cabin. Today the builders will put in a sub floor here for us. We moved 90% of our things into the other side which is the garage. Leaving a bit of furniture that the builders will move as they work over the next 3 days.
In the meantime we put down an 8' x 11' rug. Its an old rug from home. For the boys to play on. And a few little chairs to keep the 6 littles off the concrete.

The dogs are being moved outside under a shady tarp. It gets quite warm in here so they'll like that.

 *Warning* lots of mosquito bites on the 6 littles. And all 6 scratched and itched them bloody no matter what we tried. The mosquitoes ate up Noah and Mercy the worst, then Moses. Not so much the other 3.
(Julius above :o)

 Jacob trying not to smile. He cries every time he has to go in to the trailer, OR out of the trailer! Sheesh! Jakie!
He complains a lot! But he's ours! :o)

 Noah, tired, but always such a trooper. He's not sleeping well. He is so curious about everything. He loves investigating his environment. He has no fears.

In 2014 Miss Mercy loved camping.
In 2016 Miss Mercy hates camping.
She yelled for 3 days,(and one veeeeery long night) and finally she decided she will make the best of it! Goodness this sweet girl is stubborn! Good thing we love her and we're more stubborn!

 Moses was not thrilled to be here. But he's smart as a whip. He figured out how it goes. And in typical Mosie mode he bosses everyone around he can. Pushing them where they should go. And showing them how camping is done! LOL!!

 Pauly was tired here. He wanted to go to bed. So we took him in. He's a trooper as long as he gets his hugs and sits on my lap.

 Samson turns 21 today! Wooo-Hoo! Pizza and ice cream party after the builders leave! He wants his gifts when we get home. No where to put anything now! So he gets 2 parties! I'd say 21 deserves at least two! He has lived with a heart that should not be beating this long! Praise God he has!


 Isaiah took the photos.
Big sister Kitty making sure all is o.k.

 Even a time out chair is here! LOL! A visual reminder to Mercy. We used it the first 3 days but she's "done" with it now! :o)

 Baby gates to keep Mercy from wandering outside. The boys are very good about sticking close to us. Mercy likes to "hide" in corners and under things.
You can see thru to the garage side. That will be walled off next month.

There is so much room for everybody. God has truly blessed us. We are having a great time!
We are making so many new friends here and the Community is much nicer than at the Lake. Even though we are 8 miles away. We are accepted as new comers (although we've owned this land 18 years) not as Vacationers. Everyone wants to help. The people who live here encourage us, as we hope to live here too.

  1. Happy Birthday Sampson!!! Wow! A grown man. What a miracle his story is. God is so faithful. Everything looks like it is coming along nicely. The space you will have is so wonderful. What a blessing to be finishing everything off they way you want it and for it to be functional for you all. Glory to God!
