We have had a really busy week on the farm this week. For several days we were jumping from one vehicle to the next. 

On Thursday, I took the prince and princess to the museum to for the princess' birthday. We came home and talked to Prince Charming for a minute before deciding that we needed to try to gather some cattle for market before turning the herd into a bigger pasture. We loaded up and headed off. After catching them, we decided that it was best to go ahead and deliver them to the market for sale the next day. The market is an hour away and that put us getting home at bedtime. 

On Friday, we awoke early to deliver beef to a new restaurant customer in the big city. That was another hour-long trip (one way). Upon returning to the farm, the kids and I jumped in the "grocery getter" and ran errands. I'm not even sure what happened Friday afternoon. 

On Saturday, we started our Spring Cleaning on the farm. The weather has been unseasonably warm and we wanted to be a part of the out-of-doors. All of the things that were blown around or carried and dropped throughout the winter were put in their proper places. We unearthed our butterfly garden that was over taken by weeds. We still have work to do there, but were pleasantly surprised to see that we had plants being resurrected.

This evening, I was delighted to have the opportunity to watch The Woodcarver with the prince. (The princess was there too, but was more involved with her own play.) We were delighted by what we saw. It was such a heartwarming story of a family that had lost their way from each other and from God. They are paired with a widow man who has also lost his faith, but is the one who can help this family heal.

About the Movie from the publisher:
Matthew Stevenson is a troubled kid from a broken home. When he vandalizes the local church to get back at his parents, Matthew has to repair the damage to the church to avoid criminal charges. While working at the church, he meets Ernest (John Ratzenberger), an accomplished wood carver who created the intricate woodwork decoration that Matthew destroyed. Ernest has become something of a hermit, but reluctantly comes out of reclusion to help repair the church. Now Ernest and Matthew must work together to preserve the church's beautiful antiquity, and along the way, they also manage to restore their faith in God and in life.
