So things have changed around here. A lot!
My mornings still start early, around 5AM. and I still grab a cup of coffee, but no sugar in it these days.
My Bible and prayer time now happens with an app on my tablet and the Bible study book my friend and I are working on together.
With just 4 milking does, 10 laying hens and 25 meat birds (which will be butchered in a month), the chores don't take very long. Rachel and Samantha get their own breakfasts and start on their inside chores: dishes, sweeping floors, cleaning up the bathroom. On school days, they setup their school work at the kitchen table.
Mornings are very different now that we are a smaller family and have fewer animals. I have more time for projects and getting things done, but there are days I miss the busy-ness and the noise of having a houseful.
