Oh, hey!

It’s not that I don’t want to blog, it’s that I start a post and then get distracted.  Kind of like every other project I’ve ever started and not finished.  I am a great starter!  I am a terrible finisher.  I’ve said it before and it’s not going to change, thank God I have a husband that I can sweet talk into completing my projects for me…..most of the time.

For those of you that have been so sweet to email me and say, “Hey April, are you still alive?”  I love that.  It makes me feel like you care if I drop off the face of the earth, which I sort of have this year.  Seriously, I am lying low and trying to keep myself focused on the three F’s: Faith, Family, Farm.

Tri-F, Trifecta F, Triple F, F Trivium, The F Trilogy, Triune F

I could keep going.  But, I’ll stop because I think I might start annoying myself.


Over spring break we took a trip to Louisiana to visit Clay’s dad.  It was such a fun trip.  The much dreaded 13 hour car trip ended up being a good time for all of us to see just how long we can be together in a tight space.  The answer is 4 days.

The picture is of us in front of one of the many giant Live Oak trees in Louisiana.  This one was in a cemetery just across the street from my father-in-law’s house.  Trees don’t grow that big in Kansas.


Clay’s dad is an Episcopal Priest.  This is his church.  It was constructed the last 1850’s and it’s as adorable as it seems.  I think we doubled his congregation when we attended services on Sunday.IMG_0714

Oh yes we did.  We ate heaping piles of crawfish caught fresh that day.  My goodness it was fun.  I just finished reading an article about how good cicadas are to eat and that they are in the same family as crawfish.  Now all I can think of is bugs, I at a lot of bugs.  I don’t want to talk about crawfish anymore.

And now my boys are driving me crazy so I need to get off of here.  I’ll try to post more photos of our trip later….this year.  Ha!
