Todd and I have been a bit discouraged lately. We are waiting for God to answer a need and we are waiting. And. Waiting. In the meantime we are discouraged. And to add the discouragement......we find our little Eddie has passed away in the night. We could find nothing wrong with him and he was fine yesterday. Yes, we are a bit discouraged.....but it is the hard times that teach us to trust. More on that here.....
We do have good news though. I have confirmation that I will receive Cormo's from Indiana and from Massachuttes. We are thankful for that!

Such as it is....Busy. Too. Busy. And of course what do you do when you are too busy? Well, sensible people slow down. Weed things out, say no a couple of times...... Me? I am not sensible, practical or (I need another llll word....). No. I take on more. Oh well this too shall pass or I will! It would be really nice God if you would send me an employee or two.........

But really it is Todd who is most attached. He is a sucker for little guys. Eddie was a bottle baby and broke one his legs so when Bobbi picked her Finnish Sheep in OH she was able to bring Eddie home for free. (She has already made money on him though, her dad bought him from her!)
Bobbi picked up two ewes and is picking up a ram this week from BellaVita Farm. She has a nice little flock started.

This is going to be a long post to make up for the lack of posts recently........
Everybody got valentine's day cards from Grandma Peck. They of course loved getting the mail!
David and Jed are still getting in trouble! Thank you Lord for the spring! They need to go outside!!!
Twila is, well Twila...... Practicing her guitar daily and managing to fiddle around for at least (usually more, much more) 25% of the time she is supposed to be working, yet still able to say in all innocence "I worked hard the whole time! Really mom, I did!
Josiah is still diligently working on his reading and doing pretty good, and he is also working on memorizing the names of his numbers. The number 20 stumps him everytime. He spends every free moment he can drawing. I will have to post some of his pictures.
And lastly we have the elusive teenagers, one of which had a birthday!

It has been a difficult morning for Jed. He wanted the last grilled cheese. He wanted it badly......He didn't get it. All the other kids had two but not Jed. No, Jed had only one. "It's not fair!" Jed tells me and he ought to know.
He is five; every five year old knows the rules of fairness.
He interrogated all the older children and found the culprit.
Bobbi! Bobbi ate the last grilled cheese!!! Will justice ever be served in the Peck household? How will we ever make it through this? Will Jed ever get his grilled cheese? Stay tuned....

On October 11th Cookie A is coming to my not so local YS (City Knitting in GR). She is teaching two sock classes and I am taking both! I currently own and love two of her patterns: German Stockings and Millicent

I can not put this down! It is so much fun to knit, it is keeping me completely entertained and (to my husband's dismay) far from housework. I hoping to be able to wear it at church on Sunday so I must get it done! The pics are bad but you get the ideal. I am using knit one crochet two ty dy for the main color and a one green and one orange cotton blend. I am finding I am not particularly fond of cotton and am much more happy when knitting wool but the lovely pattern makes up for it. I shall have to knit it once more in wool....
More pics once I am done. Maybe I will even model it for you!
On to the kids.....
Joey, Eli and I went to Inside Moves with Jason (my BIL) as a late birthday present for Joey. Fun, fun, fun! I had pulled a muscle in back but couldn't resist climbing anyway. I was a little sore and didn't get to really push myself but it was still a lot of fun. Joey and Eli were like spiders! They were climbing everywhere. Sorry I forgot the camera :(
Josiah is doing well. Not much new to report. So often I wonder what is going on in his mind. I wish I just knew how to draw it out. I would do just about anything just to be able to have a conversation with him.
Twila has decided she no longer wants bangs. She thought the best solution was to cut them herself.....um it wasn't. Ah, well, hair grows.
Little David is sooo skinny. We keep feeding him but it doesn't seem to help.
Jed also has hair issues. Among other things....he told me today "Mom, I get bored every now and then." I don't feel bad for him. I don't remember how it feels to be bored.

My sister Jamie had her baby, Nathan James, Saturday January 26th. He was a whopping 9 lbs and 1 ounce! My sister is only 5'1 and weighed about 110 when she got pregnant! Wow were we surprised by his size. The picture above was taken today, he is being held by Twila and is about 5 days old. What a cutie!
