Pay it Forward

Treat people the way that you want to be treated.  I wish I knew how many times that I had said this over the last 10 years during this time that we have been parents.  I have been following Harvest Moon Farm on FB and when I saw the tragic event that occurred with their goats; I knew that we had the ability to fill a need and help them out by offering one of our goats.  The kids are excited that we are able to help another farm. 

I haven't blogged since July...just couldn't find the motivation.  I don't know why.  But I think it is back. 

We have made some changes since the last time that I blogged.  The biggest change; the kids returned to "regular" school.  I think that there are both positives and negatives to this decision, and I will probably blog on my many, many feelings about this subject at another time. 

Pay it forward!!


  1. Hello from Sunny Morning Farm. I, too, have been following Harvest Moon farm and am saddened by what has happened to her goats. You are such an awesome person offering your goats for her! Paying it forward is what it's all about! That will get you some new stars in your crown one day and such a great thing to teach your children!! God bless you! I look forward to reading more about you soon! ~ Becky

  2. And we appreciate it more than you know! Please also express my sincere thanks to your children :)

  3. Well there you are !
    I don't follow Harvest Moon.....what happened to their goats ?

    Can't wait to hear all about your journey since July !

  4. 2 of my pregnant Nubian does were attacked by neighbor's dogs. One - a 9-month-old - was killed outright, and her mother was mauled so severely that we had to have her euthanized.
