Family
Welcome to my family blog. I have been married to Mike for over half of my life. I love my Savior, Jesus. I am a stay-at-home, homeschooling mom to six terrific, interesting children. My 3 oldest were born to me in my younger years, while my 3 youngest were given to me by God in my older years. I am very blessed. ~Cheri

Warmth

When I was very young, our family lived in an apartment in the suburbs of a large city.  At age 10, we moved to the very mountainous area of West Virginia.  We had no air conditioning (except my parents' bedroom).  The only heat, came from a large wood-burning stove or fireplaces.  I always loved the smell of the early morning fire mom or dad would start before all of us got out of bed.  Seth and Tia heat their home with just a wood-burning stove.  So, it is no surprise, they come over often to gather up some wood.

Saturday was a beautiful day for it.



We have quite a few trees to spare. 


 Learning how to swing that ax


Guys love their tools.


Mike finally replaced the truck that Seth totaled in 2012 when the drunk driver hit him.

Me and my girls (minus 1 girl).  Why does Ivy look so tall? 

I didn't swing an ax, or load wood.  I just fed the crew.

Looks like a fun family time! We have a wood stove and use it much of our "winter", supplementing with the heat pump on occasion. I love having the fire going all day long.........we just have a little harder time finding wood than you do! But we struck gold this year! A neighbor, who used to have a mulberry orchard years ago, is more than happy to have us remove the dead trees and logs! Their supply will keep us warm for years to come!
