Common Ground Fair

This past weekend we enjoyed the Common Ground Fair with my in-laws. This fair is quite different from any I have ever been to. There are no rides or games, but rather it is more of an exhibition. Maine people come from all over to demonstrate old and lost trades. All of the food is organic and Maine made. It was really quite fascinating!

Olivia and I

Justin's grandmother is here from Texas and it was fun to have her along. She is quite the character!

Olivia won this bumper sticker by doing a bean bag toss at an organic milk stand. Off course her dad and brothers all had to do it too and they won these bandannas. We had to get a picture!

Yes, my belly continues to grow! Only four weeks left until my due date! We are getting very anxious to meet this little one!

Our new house!

Yes, I know it has been quite some time since my last post. We have been very busy with moving in and setting up house. I still don't have any pictures of the inside of the house yet because it is not quite ready :-) but things are coming along and Lord willing I will be pretty much all done in about one more week. Here are a few pictures of the outside for now.

So what are the Horsman's up to these days? As you may recall the Lord has graciously provided free housing for us since we got married back in January. Right now we are living in my great-uncle's summer cottage on the same lake that I have grown up on. It has been such a blessing to be living here and we love being by the lake, but the cottage is not winterized and it is time for us to move in to a place of our own. We have been looking, praying, and waiting on the Lord to show us exactly where He wants us to live. A few weeks ago we came across an advertisement for a lovely little three bedroom bungalow for rent. It is an older house, but the owners have taken wonderful care of it and have also just finished building a new back porch, new two car garage, and put up a nice fence around the yard. We are overwhelmed with the Lord's goodness to us and are very much looking forward to moving in one week from today! Right now I am busy packing as we get ready for the 15th. I'm sorry that I don't have any pictures of the house yet, but I will be sure to post some soon!

A few days ago some of my siblings and I spent some time making birthday cards for my mom. After they left my house I decided to make some more cards to have on hand. I really enjoyed putting these together and the baby pictures I found online were so cute!

Tea Party

Last week my mom, Justin's mom, Granny (Justin's grandmother) and I all met together at a lovely little tea house. Justin and my father-in-law sent us there as a mother's day gift. We had such a good time sipping tea together and talking about the many aspects of motherhood. I am so grateful for the wonderful resources I have in these three precious women. I still can't believe I am going to be a mommy myself!
