Where have we gone?!?

You may have noticed that there hasn’t been a post around here in several months.
There were a bunch of changes here at “The Little House” and I was very reluctant to not only share what was going on for privacy sake but also my head was spinning and sitting down to type it out just overwhelmed me!

So, here’s a recap of the last few months…
November 3rd~ We became licensed foster parents
November 4th~ We went from a family of 5 to a family of 7 and had 2 new children move in with us! 2 girls ages 3 & 6.
February 14th~ Back to a family of 5

Entering the foster care world, setting up schools, services, parent visits, and navigating the holidays while trying to keep 5 kids alive in this tiny house over the winter was a challenge! The lack of space shined in the windows as we tripped over each other, wished there was an additional bathroom, ran out of hot water during showers, and my goodness just having space to play when then temperatures were in negative digits!

However, I am proud to say that our 2 extra gals and their parents did an amazing job and they returned home on Valentines day!
Since then we have not taken in any extra children but our current 3 sure have kept us hopping!


Farmer built us a chicken coop and this weekend we made the exciting trip to Tractor Supply for 20 chickens and 2 ducks.  The children have lovingly named the ducks Waddles and Nibbler.  In the next month as we pray for warmer weather they will be adding a feeder steer, 3 goats, and some bunnies.  Stay tuned for those adventures and if you have any questions about Foster Care or are thinking of becoming a Foster Parent please feel free to ask!
