The Season in Full Force part 2

While Katie and Marc are busy running back and forth from field to berry hut, house to field, etc, Liz is busy wrangling the household and the various children that still occupy it, regardless of blueberry season! Susan is blessing the household with her time watching the 3 oldest Godbeer children from 9 - 3, so after breakfast her crew gets dressed and clears out for fun time with Grandma. They've been doing all kinds of things - beach trips, petting zoo, playzone - the question remains: where does Susan find the energy?? You are amazing Susan.
Heather spent her first week here helping out around the house, and Liz found the extra pair of hands (and eyes) invaluable. Heather also had her friend Shae here this past week, and the two of them were a duo of superhuman child care! Liz was actually able to tidy up after meals without juggling too many children, and there were generally less fits and tantrums since the kids were getting the attention they want and need. Karen has been lending many hands as well to the mix, sometimes taking Elijah to her place for a change of scenery, or else actually offering to help tidy the place up on a rare quieter afternoon. Bless you!
Laura has been running the store front during the week, while juggling order bookings, sorting blueberries, and (when the time allows) her real estate! Customers have been very happy with the size and quality of the berries, which is encouraging since it's our first year, and it would have been a little disappointing if things hadn't gone as well as they have been. It seems for the most part that people are happy with us as the new owners. Happy customers makes for happy owners!

Elijah has proven to be a handful these days as he cannot yet walk, but has decided he can climb. Not yet baby boy!

Charlotte is on those two little feet of hers more often than not these days, and she loves climbing onto these 'riders' and moving herself along.

Evelyn, desperately wanting to follow Charlotte up the slide. Patience little girl, you will be running before you know it!

Some of Hannah's creations during playdough time!

3 little prisoners...I mean babies. This is actually something they love to do while the older kids are outside playing. An entire playroom behind them, but really all they want to do is watch the older kids.

More playdough fun! 

The 3 amigos from behind. Elijah, you seem to have lost your pants, son.
