Questions from Rosy (her questions are in bold):

  2. What’s your favorite board game? I’d have to say Ticket to Ride but I love Monopoly too!
  3. Outside game? I don’t play many outside games though I really liked this game (I’m not sure what the name is) but where basically you had to run around in this circle while people who are “stuck” together tag you and then you’re stuck to them! It’s a blast!
  4. How many siblings do you have? For privacy reasons, I will answer 7 but a few of them are animals 🙂

Nature…ain’t it beautiful? -Abby

Hey guys, Abby here. This summer, I planted three rose plants…red, yellow, and pink long-stemmed bushes. So far the yellow and pink bushes bloomed the most and I was able to take 5 pictures of the blooming process!

 

Some more flower pictures:

 

And some random pictures I took today (note the quality is really low because of some upload problems):

 

Also, I’m getting my wisdom teeth out so wish me luck on Monday the 13th.

Mailbox project! -Abby

Hello guys, Abby here! Sorry for not posting a ton! My dad and I started this project a few weeks ago and actually just finished today! About 15 years ago my grandpa built a mailbox for the property we currently live on. That mailbox was falling over and needed a pick-me-up…

So I decided why not make a whole new mailbox with even a bigger mailbox for packages and stuff!

We then went out to our old mailbox and knocked it down…

 

We then went back and finished all the things on the mailbox and set it up!

 

Power tools used: screwdriver, saw, and chainsaw. All the materials we used were leftovers from other projects. The only cost was: screws/nails, paint, concrete, numbers, and the actual mailbox.

 

What do you guys think of it? Anything fun or interesting you noticed?

Happy Father’s Day! – Abby

Happy Father’s Day guys!

Abby here 🙂 I hope your day is going well! Today is the day we celebrate our fathers! Every year I always try to buy something fun for my dad! And this year he wanted…….a drill?! How is a drill exciting? Either way, my mom, siblings, and I pitched in and bought him his impact drill…

I know some families don’t get dad’s gifts and that’s totally alright! I just love doing it because it’s so much fun and I mean who doesn’t want to get a gift?!

 

Have an amazing day, y’all and stay safe! -Abby ❤

Jayne’s Endeavour – Abby

Hey guys, Abby here! Sorry for posting late! Lauren contacted me about a month ago with a book she published called Jayne’s Endeavour. It’s newly released annnnd she’s even doing a giveaway for it! Let me tell you a bit about it….

Book Mockup

 

“Reids never give up.” The words once held so much truth. But at eighteen, Jayne Reid is beginning to wonder if she can live up to that standard.

When puzzling strangers appear and odd things start to happen, Jayne and her two younger sisters must find a solution-or lose everything.

What mystery lurks in the shadows of the Australian bush? Who is the man in town who thinks he can buy and bully anyone he wishes? And is it all somehow connected with their new farmhand?

Journey with Jayne as she struggles to change fear into boldness and boldness into a trusting relationship with her Heavenly Father. What adventure lies ahead?

Life in 19th century Australia overflows with hardship . . . Will Jayne have the courage to find the answers?

You can find the book CLICK HERE

 

My Review: I LOVE new books! But let’s just say I procrastinated reading Jayne’s Endeavour…but then once I read the first chapter it drew my attention! Lauren has a fun writing style and it was interesting to see the story unfold. 

My favorite character was obviously Jayne, as she had a cool and fun personality! She was well explained and had a very emotional story behind her which made it very interesting to read!

This book took me an hour and a half to read tops (though I am a fast reader so it may take longer). I’ll give this book 4 stars for the quality and story behind it!
