My Happy Campers :o)

I have been painting 6- 8 hours a day. I want to finish painting the floor above and the outside of the building before we leave. It has rained a lot, I think I'm just going to make it! The last of my building painting is on the back where there are no lights. Of course it rained today.

The boys with Mercy in two groups of three, explore and have fun, as I paint.

The builders finally finished the interior of the cabin enough that we could work on our part of the cabin. We had  hoped to finish our part this week. Their delay stopped that. Then we thought we'd stay an extra week or 2 but the kids caught a bad cold. So we'll only finish the painting. Next Spring we'll resume where we left off Lord Willing.

We brought the 6 youngest in  to "see" their new cabin!
Julius (with Kitty doing school work) above was thrilled!

Mercy says "This is the life!"  LOL! Running in big circles and throwing duplo legos in the air. Her two favorite things- running/escaping and throwing!

Moses loves that his cars can drive 10' or more before hitting something or someone! :o)
He prefers more furniture tho! And he loves windows. You'll always find him looking out a window or door!

Jacob is not impressed. But then he prefers to be off on his own more than enjoying things with us as a family. I've mentioned before he is our contrarian! But whether he likes it or not, this is good for him! :o)

Noah was sick here. They all caught a horrible cold. Boogies, bad coughs. He will enjoy it more when he feels better. The extra "rocking" (from not feeling good) at bed time makes for a little mess of hair that needs to be cut when we get home.

Pauly with his Autism was horrified and completely freaked out. It was not familiar anymore and he did not like it. We settled him in a chair and he chewed a sensory chewy. Eventually he realized it was all o.k. and we were not leaving him. He tolerated it for us. Afterwards he was happy to go back in the trailer.

MA without her glasses she looks younger than her years. Her heart is sweeter and more vulnerable. Her and SP are so fragile now. MA and SP did not catch the cold, an advantage from having their own space!

More rain. This side painted, without new window molding yet. Next year 5 sets of bunk beds will be set up. And 5 hide a beds. God is Good!!


  1. What a wonderful huge space! I can see your plan and vision and it is just perfect. A very special place and functional for your whole family to come to, to relax and enjoy Gods creation. My Timmy has autism and loves to run in circles throwing things too. If he has nothing to throw he just flaps and flaps his arms. We try to redirect him. He and Mercy would just have a wonderful time together! :) The cold sounded bad. I hope everyone is on the mend. We have something going thru right now as well. It takes quite a while to get thru all our children. It can be tiring. Many blessings!

  2. I really like what you do for these children. They really seem to be living the happiest lives that children in their condition are capable of.
