    I have quietly watched you for a couple years. I appreciate this as a mother, and wife building a house and homestead right now. I've been a mama 14 years and I will say this... the days are long but the years are short. Take that family time, you guys are killing it. God bless ❤

    I just love this journey with you! So genuine, so honest, so real! The only thing that stinks is all the work you have to do to make my life easier. You are my go to TheXvid channel when I need a break from life. Time definitely does fly by way too fast. Most of us don't recognize it until much later. So glad you recognize this now. You are all just so wonderful to allow us into your world. Thank you!!

    Let me sound like your Grandmother, Kenzie: Feeling a little melancholy and tired after all you've been through this past couple years is normal. Take that time to be good to yourselves. Give yourselves permission to take a weekend or two off. It will recharge you. Me time is highly under-rated, especially with a baby. YOU have done very well coping with all the workload. So pat yourself on the back. Wish I were closer, I'd be driving out with dinner in the truck to check on you two and make sure you're getting properly fed.

    Nobody, but nobody, on their deathbed says, "I wish I had spent more time at the office." Enjoy every moment with those you love and DON'T BLINK! Love to you all...

    You two are amazing. Yes time flies, and someday you will look back on this and wonder how you made it through. Keep doing what feels good for you. Your daughter is obviously thriving and seems well loved and cared for. Perhaps a break would be a good idea, but only you two know what is best for your family. BTW, sometimes a good cry from out of the blue can do wonders for your day. : ) You inspire us all.

    I was upset when you said you were changing the outside colors. I really liked the dark blue. Now I see it was absolutely the right decision. It looks so clean and fresh. Plus, as a fellow Southerner, I know it will keep it much cooler.

    Being a mother , just handling the child itself is a difficult and stressful task.

    So, I've been thinking that when you are done with the house that you have a career waiting for you as videographers ... I really love your editing and audio insertions. So relaxing to watch ... my 'weekly' 15-minute treat.

    You Guys!!!! It's hard enough building a homestead and I LOVE what you are doing and how you are doing it. Add in a Baby and WOW... It gets X10 harder. What blows my mind is the quality of your video. I am in the broadcast/AV industry and completely understand how much effort it takes to frame the shot, make sure the lighting is right, the time it takes to edit, and all the other "Blah blah" techie stuff that most viewers have no idea about. Your videos very professional, but its your journey that has me hooked. I love your channel and have been watching for a long time. Kudos and keep it up.

    You spoke from the heart Kenz. Time together is important guys! My eyes were filled up listening. Love each other but most importantly take time and go on a picnic in the meadow, the projects will always be there when you own a home. You are burnt out already, you can see it in your eyes.

    Having seen how and where this project started out 2 years ago and going on the journey with you guys, this house being on the brink of being done is honestly a huge pay off. I am super happy for you guys!

    When she was down by the meadow, talking about what matters, I felt all of that. 😭 i hope/pray that spencer can soon start to take time to live a little more in the moment. Your baby has grown SO much and those are moments/years you’ll never get back, when you least expect it she’s off to college!

    I learned something a few years ago from a friend of mine. If you want to keep snakes away, get ducks and or chickens. We encourage the wild ducks to work for us by putting down bird seed, but you can also use chickens. I notice that you have a fence around your yard, so perhaps that will help keep them in. Anyway, ducks and chickens hate snakes because they eat their babies. As a group, they will gang up on the snake and drive it away or kill it - which ever comes first. Happily, our wild duck visitors also rid our property of many bugs, including very large dock spiders (by large, I mean the size of my hand). Some years we have more wild ducks than others, and we notice the difference in the bug control during lighter duck years. Anyway, its a passive way to keep snakes off the property. FYI.

    When you have a woman that will paint your whole house with a chip brush, you know you have got a keeper.
