farm country

Here are a few pictures from the school house in Illinois.  Most of them were with a ton of our family so I opted out of posting those.

me and the hubs  (handsome fella eh?)

A few cousins...  Remember that old merry-go-round I told you about here?  

There may have been a little wiffle ball.  Joe's the pitcher and my brother is the catcher.  The others are some of the cousins.  I got suckered inside by the giant fire we had going...  It was my job to keep it going, but I wasn't complaining I enjoyed sitting by the warm and reading with my momma.  (:

You're probably thinking where is this school house you speak of?  Well for some reason I didn't take any pictures of the front of it this past trip.  However, here is one from Christmas 2012.

  8. Amanda, what a totally charming schoolhouse! Just love it's quaintness and the "merry-go-round" makes me feel nostalgic, you don't see many of those anymore!

    On another note, you should be getting the Dressing Room print tomorrow if they acccurately predicted the delivery date! Could you me know when you receive it so that I know it arrived safely? Thanks! xo ~S
