Welcome to the Homestead Blog Hop!
Glad you could come by!
At Ridge Haven Homestead these last couple of weeks, we’ve been working on our cabin! Namely, the roof!
Thankfully, everyone has stayed safe, and we have made good progress! Our boys are the main roofers, and their skill has been improving steadily! I am excited just thinking how all this newfound carpentry skill can be put to work here for our cabin project.
By the way, our boys are 13, 14, and 16! I’ve been impressed over and over at their strength and stamina as they’ve helped us build! ??
Schoolwork currently involves carpentry ?. Check back and we will shift gears to the books soon! But, as they say, “make hay while the sun shines!”
We are thankful that the sun has been shining to give us plenty of work time!
Today I’m sharing a couple of posts that I hope will encourage my readers.
The first one is about our attitudes and what a certain little Twinkie taught our family about attitude improvements!
My second article deals with a topic near and dear to almost every mom–burnout! I talk about how important it is that we as moms (and especially those of us who homeschool or work at home) take time for ourselves. Not in a selfish way, but as a means for our own survival and peace of mind!
You know what they say, “If Mama ain’t happy, ain’t nobody happy!” I think you’ll enjoy Self-Care For Homeschool Moms
