Below you can read the Daily Themes to give you a better idea of topics we will cover. There will be something for everyone... handmade crafts, baking, cooking, country walks, reading, talking, and animal care. Plus, my four little kids will be around, joining us from time to time. It really will be like you're just joining in the family.
Basically, the week is intended for anyone interested in experiencing the goodness of a week on a family farm. Welcome to the family!
Day 2: The Good ShepherdSheep respond best to a gentle, patient and steadfast farmer. On this day we will learn more about the sheep and the goats and make soap together from our own goat's milk.
Day 3: Creation WithinWe are God’s handiwork, created in Christ Jesus to do good works. I love the truth that we were created by a loving Creator to be creative ourselves. On this day we will spend time making and building and stitching, as well as learning all about chickens. (We hope to have baby chicks arrive the week you are here!)
Day 4: Preparing, Preserving and seeking WisdomOn this day we will talk about our individual futures, while learning about preparing and preserving foods for the winter ahead. Planning for the future takes intentional consideration and work but it is always worth it... especially when you open a jar of fresh strawberry jam in the middle of February!
Day 5: Community, Hospitality and Friendship Keeping"Let us consider how we may spur one another on toward love and good deeds." This day we will focus on honeybees (you will not need to go near them!) and how they work together. And we will end our week with a beautiful outdoor lunch out in the field.
