Feelin' Like Fall!

          Hi everybody. Today Elizabeth went to the Hillsdale County fair with her friend for the day. Elizabeth's friend wanted her to take some goats to their fair so Elizabeth took two goats to the fair. She is going to show them on Friday. My mom, Benjamin, Elizabeth and I went there on Monday. We brought our school work and did it there. We also walked around too.
        I like the months of fall. I like it how God made it so the trees change their colors. I also like it how it how pretty their colors are. My favorite color in the fall is orange. I think it stands out more than the other colors. Fall is a very nice time to go horseback riding, take walks and go bike riding. Our trees are just starting to change color

Family Times and More Canning!

Sunday - September 18, 2011
          Our family went down to my Uncle Jack's house. My cousin Tom and his wife Rachel are going to have a baby. This is going to be my Grandpa and Grandma's first great grandchild so most of  my aunts, uncles and cousins were there too, It was a lot of fun. My Uncle Jack has an Argo. It is a six-wheeled vehicle that can go on land and in water. We rode on it until it broke down.  It broke down 2 times and each time we fixed it.  On the third time it broke down my Uncle finally gave up on trying to fix it.

       This morning I woke up at 6:00 AM.  I did a little bit of school and my mom, sister and I canned carrots and peppers today. The peppers took longer than the carrots did but now we have some color to put in our pantry.  Then at 2:30 Elizabeth and I went riding horses. It was awesome! When we got back we had to do our chores. We had B.L.T's.  They were great to have for a late summer supper!

Why That Title???

Hi everybody I just wanted to tell every why my blog is named "From the Doors of an Orphanage". The reason I call it that is because when I was 4 1/2 I was adopted from an orphanage in the country of Ukraine. I had been there since I was born. I was trying to figure out what name to name my blog.  I asked everyone in my family if they had any ideas for a name for my blog. When I asked my dad, he gave me this title as an idea and I liked it. So I kept it.  So there you have it why I named my blog from the Doors of an Orphanage. Today Abigail,  Elizabeth and I went riding in the woods. I also did my Saturday cleaning that I do every Saturday morning.
 Here are some pictures:
