So we’ve all done potentially dangerous things with our kids. There are often things I look back on and think- in retrospect that was a bad choice. What is concerning to me about the bus/lap picture is that afterwards they didn’t even realize it was a mistake. They think it is so ok that they posted a picture of it.

I’m sure that’s because they do this type of thing all the time. It’s their norm. and that’s scary.

There are pics of all of Chelsea and John’s kids in the mix. It’s great to see Maddie standing and looking healthy.

I just read that Canada is lifting their testing/vax travel restriction so I guess the Bonts will be touring there again.

Will they need to recruit Joe Xiques again?  Can they really function as a band without him?

Joe actually stopped touring with them a little while ago. And I say good for him.

I think I saw Anna Maxwell the third’s sister a couple of times. 

Yes, that's definitely Rachael Craig.

The Craigs are friends with the Bontragers. Both families always do the Bible bee. I believe that’s how they’ve known each other for years.

New blog post up from the Bontragers (link). It's of family camp. Probably photos from social media.  I still can't tell Hannie, Jennifer, and Jordyn Duggar apart.

If I have my Duggars right, Jordyn is closest to the camera, Johanna is semi hidden behind Jackson, and Jennifer is the blonde one on the other side of the group.

Joe Xiques seems to have a girlfriend named Avery Dearmore. I’m just glad he isn’t dating Liz and isn’t traveling with the Bontragers anymore.

Allison says she’s due any day now. 
 

I can’t help but be curious about the names of the newest Bont/Bowers babies. Are they still going with W’s and J’s? Do both still only have all girls or all boys? Or did they have the opposite sex child after 2 kids of the same sex like both Chelsy and Mitch?

Me too. I do wish they'd just say names and birthdates. No photos or anything else. Even a fake name, we wouldn't know!

Me three. Them and the two Duggars couples who are rumored to have recent babies.I do t care about pictures, just a name and a birthdate. 

While I give them credit for wanting to keep their families off social media, it’s a weird look, especially after Joshua Bontrager’s multiple grandiloquent posts mansplaining the name of Dassidy’s last baby.

Would you be so kind to share a link? I wasn't following the Bons then.

New blog post up from the Bontrager blog. It's called Happenings at the Farm (link). It makes the old Maxwell "Random Life" posts look like proper newsletters. 

I was looking for news on Allison. I hope she had the baby and they're fine.

I bet she’s had the baby but hasn’t announced on social media yet.

It says ‘enter your text here’ at the top. We will know if Marlin reads here if that changes.

Bontragers never have any news anymore. They get grandkids, they sing, they tour, they farm, they fellowship. Repeat. There are good-looking meals in there too. But nothing that exciting. I wonder if they’re deliberately being quiet since the Jan 6 attempted coup, they don’t want to have the slightest bit of controversy around them because so many people know that they were there and people are being treated, well, as they deserve to be treated, losing jobs, etc, when people found out they were there. And I don’t know how much Mennonites are on social media but if the extended family knows that’s got to be tough because Mennonites are pacifists and even though Marlin left, I’m sure his family would judge him quite harshly for taking part.

Does the US even routinely vaccinate for polio anymore?  I thought it was eradicated-ish to the point where they stopped vaccinating for it. 

That's smallpox

Well the two sons married to Curtis Bowers’ daughters no longer want to be on the blog. Nor do they want any info posted about them. So I do think Jan 6 has a lot to do with it. I’m sure they got a visit with questions as to whether they went inside or not. It may have scared them into silence online. Plus the only grandchildren they have around regularly are Mitch’s kids. Everyone else is out of state. Praise and Denver must be dealing with some sort of issues because Bontragers don’t seem to believe in birth control. Their farm is pretty empty because so many kids and grandkids live out of state. That makes for way less news and cute pictures.

I think it also has a lot to do with Allison and chelsey being gone. One them (can’t remember which) seemed to be in charge of the blog. Now Liz has taken over and I don’t think she posts as much and her posts are always very short.

The Bont instagram says they have some pretty exciting news to share. I really hate to break it to them but there hasn’t been exciting news from the Bonts in years. I’m guessing it’s a new CD or they will be touring in Canada again since they won’t have to get vaxed to get in. Yawn.

Maybe Denver and Praise finally have a lil' arrow on the way?

      First snow storm of the season hit today. It got windy tonight, and we lost power. Somehow this continues to be a shock to PSE. Why they refuse to upgrade the infrastructure or do something so that 10s of thousands of people don’t lose power and heat literally every time it’s windy, I do not understand. We live in the Pacific Northwest. It gets windy!

      Nebraska's new football coach is an evangelical bullshit artist who participates in "Man Up Ministries" conferences in the off season. Their motto is "Fighting for Biblical Manhood". Excuse me while I go vomit.

      Long time no visit…
      COVID has finally caught up with me. Dad tested positive first, last Friday, then my mother, brother and I all tested positive today. Main symptom is feeling really really tired. Hopefully it doesn’t get much worse 🤞

      Do I wear it?
      i was given a vintage, 70 year old mink coat. It fits like it was made for me. Somehow my cousin, who is 8 years older than me came into 3 gorgeous fur coats from a granddaughter of a woman her mother knew. We’re talking women who died in the mid 60’s.  None of them would fit her or any other of the women in my family. Yay for essentially being a ball. Everyone else is about 5’7 or more and all outweigh me by 50+. 
       
      it is just gorgeous. What women in Skokie and Highland Park many years ago, when I still lived there would call a “serviceable” fur. It was the fur they’d wear to a good restaurant, but not the opera or symphony.
      do I wear it? I’d love to, and I live in hunting country so fur isn’t looked down on. But is it wrong?  Arrrgh god its pretty.

      A modern day love story: Guy reaches out to you, you think he's cute so you start talking to him, give him your number. Guy then messages if you're free, you reply yes, guy never responds again. Love that. 👌
