National Wildlife Federation

What's New Around Green Heart
Today it's raining so maybe I will catch up on some housework.
Dustin signed our property up with the National Wildlife Federation as a Certified Wildlife Habitat.
The house is coming along good too. The first coat of the stucco is almost complete. I spent yesterday scrapping and prepping the windows for stain. We are going to use raw linseed oil as the stain.
The kids are doing well and enjoyed a beautiful day outside yesterday.
Hopefully today Happy Earth Products will be able to accept credit cards.

Spring is finally on it's way!

We have made great improvements on the house since my last update. We have a beautiful concrete floor, cut in a diamond pattern. The outside of the base coat of stucco is also almost complete too!
The trees are just starting to get their leaves and we have been able to eat some fresh rhubarb and asparagus. Yummy! I can't wait until the garden is ready. I have only planted onions but plan on getting the rest in this next week.
Dustin finally got his tractor today. It is a John Deer 2020. We bought it to lift the dirt onto the roof and plow the driveway ( hopefully not the plowing part though for a couple months).
The kids are both doing great. Jenna is speaking her own little language and loves to pick rocks up in the driveway.
Tonight I made egg rolls and Chinese chicken salad for dinner.

Ohh Happy Day!

I did it! I graduated from college. According to some google research only 35% of the population has graduated with some degree from college. I put many long hours into studying with 2 kids, a husband, building a house, and starting MOMS Club. I look back and I don't know how I did it.
Jenna's 1st birthday was great as well. We had about 40 people attend the party. She is so funny. She was very excited to blow out her candles.
Last week Dustin was in Detroit for work. The kids and I survived. It was a nice break from cooking, but we missed Dustin. On Friday we had a family fun night for MOPS. It was nice Dustin was able to go with us. Saturday was graduation and we enjoyed lunch at H & H in Escanaba. Today, we spent the day outside riding 4 wheelers and had a cookout at James and Grace. Dustin and I then took Derek for a ride up north to look for fish.
