Here are some pictures of our Labor Day outing. We took a little time off work to splash in God's "swimming pool", and enjoy the beauty of the Tennessee mountains. Sometimes it is hard to take time off from work, or even the garden. There is such a balance between work and fun, and Michael and I struggle to find that balance at times. We so want to build the farm up, but not at the sacrifice of our family. We do not want to raise our children to hate the very life that we hold so dear to us. If the farm becomes nothing but work, our children will resent it and want to remove themselves from it. However, if play is the only thing our children know, then we have not done our job as parents. They need to learn early on the balance between work and play. I know I enjoyed the play day very much. I heard talk about a camping trip coming soon for our family!!!
grace and peace,
