I love spending time with my husband. I could totally handle having him work from home all the time. Dave's work is in the middle of where our house is and where he goes for High Council. (An hour drive from home to the town where High Council is) So on Wednesday's, High Council days, he goes to work later and then drives straight there in the evening. As a result we hang out Wednesday mornings. Nothing big or grand. The kids are all in school, so it's just us. We check cow, go to the dump, put up walls, or dig holes for footings. Simple things together. This week he also took Thursday and Friday off. The weather has been beautiful. It is so peaceful out here in the morning. Yesterday we check cows, moved some fences, and I watched as he did some work on the tractor.
See my boot. I was super helpful right there.
I am so loving the age of my kids right now. No diapers or babysitters. They can help around the house and farm, but can entertain themselves. They get ready on their own or make and clean up their dinner if I am going somewhere. I can run to town or hang out with Dave and not worry about them. They are old enough to have a real conversation with and have interests and hobbies, not so needy. They are fun to hang out with and make us laugh, smile, be proud of their accomplishments. But can see when others need help and do it. They are all in school, seriously fantastic. I kinda wish they could stay like this forever. But when they are in school, I am really enjoying my weekly morning date with Dave. We talk about everything or nothing. We talk over possible solutions for the kids, or our church callings, or dream about the future. Beautiful. Peaceful. Perfect. He is such a great man.
