Leroy and Dana raise black and red Angus cattle, and school their three sweet kids at home. We got invited to their house for a fabulous pancake lunch and spent the afternoon catching up as if we were long lost kindred spirits. J had a slightly dazed and dizzy look as Dana and I talked non-stop, leaping from topic to topic with no apparent transition. Tools for sensory processing, quilting, the price of getting a side of beef, people we know, books we've both read, books we recommend, decorating, paint colors, their adoption story, how we already knew each others' families, raised garden beds, simplifying...
I am in love with Dana's decorating taste! I felt like I'd walked into a working version of Pinterest. With her permission, here is a glimpse into their busy, happy home. Check out the livingroom chandelier!
|North wall of living room with desk|
|Chalkboard and visual aid to learning Bible books|
|South wall of livingroom with wee people desk|
|Laundry area with folding table|
|Two of my favorite things: Gingham and blue-and-white!|
Even though it's an hour and 17 minute drive, the kids and I plan to join their family and other friends for their next rural homeschool day. Can't wait!
