Life as a Lumber: what we’ve been up to!

Hi, all! I hope you are doing well and are in good health. We are all well and have been very busy!

We have three sitting hens at the moment, and currently have three baby chicks. We are also rehoming a rooster at the current moment since we really don’t need two of them.

We recently went to visit my grandmother before she moves back to WV. We had a great visit, and these two little stinkers took a nap on Mamaw’s couch.

I have unfortunately injured my shoulder and will be unable to lift weights for four weeks. Thankfully, it was not a more serious injury and I didn’t have to have any surgery.

The kids just got finished with their spring break. Those lucky ducks got to go shopping, bowling and got to hang out with both sets of grandparents.

I hope you all have a wonderful week! This week, we will share the following posts:

1. Spring cleaning outdoors

2. Spring wreaths and decor roundup

3. Kitchen organization at its best

4. Amazon Affiliates: healthy snacks!

Life with the Lumbers: What we’ve been up to

It’s been a bit since I made one of these posts. I just wanted to catch up and share some of the things we have been doing.

Our girls’ dance team had their first competition and they racked up! My oldest daughter’s trio and her duo both won first place and my youngest daughter’s duo also won first place.

I had two sweet running buddies this week- maybe the beginning of a new hobby? I kind of hope they do take up running with me.

We have also been growing some veggies and flowers in our greenhouse. Next month we will be planting those plants in our raised beds.

We are also working on a few projects. I can’t wait to show them to you soon.

This week, I only posted once, because I had a lot happening at work and two members of our house came down with the stomach virus.

Sometimes you just need a break, you know?

Still, we had a lot of good things happen.

Our church had its annual valentines dinner and it was delicious. Look how pretty our church is at sunset (shot from the historic sanctuary on the hill).

Last week, we headed two hours west to my grandma’s house to celebrate her birthday with her. I’m not going to post her picture here out of respect to her, we saw some snow while we were there. We went out to lunch and had a blast.

We finally jumped on the air fryer bandwagon and bought an air fryer. We have enjoyed making delicious foods in it- my favorites were bacon, marinated barbecue chicken tenders, and a copycat Chick-fil-A sandwich with waffle fries. We haven’t eaten out all week. Yum!

We shored up our polytunnel and started our flower and veggie seeds. These will be planted in our garden at the end of April.

We hung these sweet Edison bulbs on our back porch last week. Our back porch is undergoing a bit of a transformation, so more about that later.

And lastly, a sweet friend of ours made us these shirts. Aren’t they awesome? Maybe some day we will sell merch.

This weekend, it snowed again.

On Friday evening, It began snowing quickly (and sticking to the roads) while the kids were in dance rehearsal.

Which made for some scary driving, but we made it home.

We had a blast sledding
It was 25 outside, but 68 in our greenhouse
And we made some snow cream. Yum!

We made a YouTube video about our crazy snow experience! Watch to the end to see Emorie and I collide on our sleds.

Hope you have a GREAT Sunday! We have so many exciting things heading your way this week!

Life as a Lumber: What We’ve Been Up To

Boy, was THIS school year one for the books. It wasn’t necessarily a bad year, however it was completely different from what we are used to. I did have a wonderful group of boys and girls in my class this year and that made it easier.

In fact, this is why my posts have been few and far between. This school year has been draining and I really didn’t have any extra energy to spend on the blog. Now that summer is here, I’m looking forward to returning to blogging.

Here’s what we have been up to lately.

Our sweet girls enjoyed Vacation Bible School at our church. They had a blast and they learned so much.
Our dance season ended with an amazing recital- the girls have had a wonderful season despite the Covid challenges and they’ve learned so much.
Our garden is doing well. It would do better if the deer would stop eating it. We are putting up a new fence today.
These things are growing up. We should have eggs before the end of summer.

Join us this week for some super awesome blog posts!! It’s good to be back.
