But, it could have been so much worse and we’re so thankful for so many things…
– no one got hurt
– we were only a week & a half into building the barn (the walls at least)
– we had insurance, and very helpful and good agents/company!
– clean up went quickly
– great support network and encouragement (thanks for all the comments!)
– hard working, patient construction crew
– we were building again the next day!
– another shipment of material was already suppose to arrive later in the week, bringing needed materials to rebuild
It was a good week to remember our theme verse from Lamentations 3:
The steadfast love of the Lord never ceases;
his mercies never come to an end;
they are new every morning;
great is your faithfulness.
Though we had a minor setback, God is still with us and each new day He gives us is a gift. And He is faithful through it all, working out good, even when it’s hard to see. Now on to some pictures of the damage.
Unfortunately rain days are frustrating. Friday was a rain day so not much work got done and then even though Saturday was a beautiful working day, obviously no one showed up because it was the weekend. There are chances of rain all week long this week, so we’ll see where it develops and how much work we get done.
More materials arrived for the guest house & milk house area, so now we’re really ready for this to go up, but it can only happen as fast as our crews can work and as long as the rain stays away. Our milking robot is scheduled to arrive this week, even though we’re not quite ready 🙂 And we’re also getting phone & internet dug to our place!
The kids and I did have some dairy fun this week as it was the county fair. We headed to the dairy show, where they both got to help show a cow and get a ribbon & milkshake! I’m sure it won’t be our last dairy show! They both had a blast! And we had a visit from my brother & his buddy, who were driving through. They just launched their Kickstarter campaign for a great new game, Luminosity, they designed! Check it out!
