Summer Endeavors

5 years ago we started construction on our home on a bare 5 acre lot. A lot has changed since then; our family of 3 has grown to 5, we have a house, a pond full of trout, a very large garden, and many many trees. During the summer it is my duty to water the trees via hoses or buckets from the stream. We have an orchard full of baby apple trees, pear trees, a plum tree, and a cherry tree. The grass is now up to my chest. For me walking through the tall grass makes me feel so young and care free. This place is so magical especially during the summer when the sun begins to sink behind the mountains. I never though that I would end up here, where I started. I am amazed by the growing realization of God's creation. Life is miraculous. God bless Wallowa County.

  1. Oh fun! Looking forward to your posts. My blog has been neglected for about a year now...someday I'll pick it up again.



Krista is..........................................

a wife to an amazing man that the Lord blessed mewith. I am a mother to some very unique children that effortlessly bring smile to my face and warmth to my heart. Plus they are so cute. I live in a mansion in the country which is still under contruction but I don't see it that way. It is a blank canvas that my husband and I are painting the most amazing life on. I am very into becoming self sustainable which is good and proving to be very fun. I find that it works well with homeschooling which I am begining to tackle. I have a degree in Photography but I don't do any thing with it. I love art but I hate pretentious people. I feel like I am just starting to find my place in this world.

All For Gods Glory
