Farm season is a busy time of year for us, and we do have our times of exhaustion in it. As much as we can, we try to embrace the moments of joy and beauty that filter into our life here on the farm. It gives us a little reboot when we need it.
We also make a point to slow down on the weekends, and to carve out intentional time in the mix of it all to keep connected with ourselves, each other, and the kids. ‘Family before farm’ is one of our personal values, and we strive as best we can to keep a grasp on that as we pursue our passions! #teachthemwhatyouknow
We are always evolving over here, but hopefully this gives you a picture of how life rolls for us doing life, farm and family– some of the ways we found to make it work for us!
One last thing,
When the kids were younger, we certainly couldn’t accomplish all that we do now without help. Those toddler years can be exhausting in their own right, requiring a lot of energy, time, and investment as parents. As the kids have grown older and more independent (they are currently aged 7 to 15 years old), it’s become far easier for us to pursue our endeavours and just invite them alongside us into it.
