We Did Make It !!

Hello all,
Sorry, sorry sorry for not posting sooner, our laptop battery was dead and it took us until today to find the inverter to charge it up!  We have tons of pictures and tons of news.
A few highlights,
Have managed to heat water in the wood fired boiler for bathes for everyone, yeah!
Have met our Amish neighbors, and had some stay for lunch!!
My boys have hauled manure all day and were complemented by above mentioned neighbors for their willingness to work and stick with it!  Made me proud!
Our stove has been delivered and sits waiting in my kitchen to be hooked up!!!, tomorrows job, yeah
Have met new friends who were very kind and brought us Morel Mushrooms, yuumm, and phone books and offers of help whenever we need it!!
I would say all in all it has been a successful few days on the farm.  I have MUCH more to tell you and MANY pictures to show you, BUT Ileigh is asleep and she is the only one who knows how to get pictures on the computer, so that will have to wait for tomorrow!
If you think of us please say a prayer as most of the family is quite ill with a cold and cough.  Thank you very much, more to come I PROMISE!!
