Happy Anniversary!

Last week was our full time employee Quintin's 1 year anniversary of working for us. So of course we had to get him a little something. I found a coffee mug that was perfect I thought he would get a kick out of it (see picture below) and threw in a few yummy snacks for good measure. Quintin is a great employee we are SO grateful to all his hard work and dependability. He is the kind of employee that we feel good about leaving the farm in the rare occasions we as a family go anywhere. He takes care of the ladies with love and affection. Thank you SO much Quintin for this year and looking forward to having you on our team and part of the Keriel Dairy for a long time!

Young Living

Ok, so school has been in session for about a week now right?  And already I have had a couple of kiddos that have come home with the sniffles and one said she had a sore throat. Not cool! About 9 months ago I started using and selling essential oils by the company Young Living. I know there is other companies that are good and that have essential oils this is just the company I connected with. I will have to tell you that we didn't have 1 trip to the doctor last year with regards to fever, cough, flu or colds. Which is HUGE for our family. I started with the diffuser that I have going with the oil "Thieves". I love it becasue not only does it make your home smell yummy but it also kills any airborne germs that carry the cold and flu viruses. If the kiddos or us start to feel achy I have also rubbed it on their chest and the bottoms of their feet. So far within 12-24 hours they say they don't feel dumpy anymore. Thieves is just the tip of the iceberg of the many different oils that are available. They help with all kinds of ailments so many that you wouldn't believe. I also love that it is something that has been used in history like F-O-R-E-V-E-R. Did you know that Frankincense is an essential oil? Where have you heard of that one before? In the Bible when the wise men brought their gifts to baby Jesus. I think that is awesome! I could go on and on with all of the amazing benefits but you have get back to your day so if you have any questions about how to get started with your own Young Living oils let me know I can tell you all about them. Stay healthy and have a great day!

Hacked!

Apparently if you leave your phone on the table a certain little lady might just decide that she needs to take some ( a LOT) of selfies. These were cracking me up! Thanks for the smile Ky. I LOVE you!!

Another Hospital Run

On Saturday afternoon Mr. Man was working in the shop. We have a homemade sledgehammer, that is so much heavier then a normal sledgehammer that he accidentally dropped on his foot. After about an hour or so of trying to decide if it was broken and him being in pain I took him to the emergency room. By now of course the hospital knows us by our first names and welcomed us right on in! HA!


 The staff is amazing!! They all were so kind and helpful to explain not only to me but to him what they were going to be doing to check out his foot.
 Praise the Lord it wasn't broken just a VERY deeply bruised. The Dr. thought it would be best to use crutches for a day or 2 but when he left for school this morning he left the crutches at home so I'm hoping he makes it all day without being in to much pain. So thankful that it wasn't worse then it could have been. There is never a dull moment on the farm!

First Day

Yesterday was the first day of school. This was the day that the milkman and I had talked about since the 4 kiddos were little. How that someday we would have a Senior, Junior,  Freshman and 8th grader all in the same year. Craziness. I guess that is what happens when you have 4 babies in 4 years huh!



 Natalia was so gracious to get up a little early to fix the girls' hair, her skills blow us away. She did a great job!
 Even though Ky's preschool doesn't start until after Labor Day we still have to have a picture with her.

 We have had a tradition every since the kiddos started school that the breakfast would be cinnamon rolls. This year Tiana made them and they were de-lish!
 After the kiddos were all off to school I had a few moms over for coffee and some visiting as a kick off to start our year off right! Ky's friend Maggie came with her mom and they played so nicely.

 Susan, Amy and Sally made the morning so fun for me. It was SO good to get caught up with these lovely ladies after a summer of not seeing much of each other. Another day has started and my goal this school year is to really treasure each minute with these sweet babies of ours because I realize that this might be the last year that we are all under the same roof. That thought is freaking me out a little. Dear God please help the time to pass by slowly and help me to treasure every minute, even when they are driving me nuts! :)
