Hi,
I think there's room for a few more Ladybug Farm adventures, although none are planned for the next year. It's easy to keep up with what's going on at Ladybug Farm in The Hummingbird House series, though. CHRISTMAS AT THE HUMMINGBIRD HOUSE is available now, and will be released on audio and in large print this holiday season. (less)

“Motherhood is a choice you make everyday, to put someone else's happiness and well-being ahead of your own, to teach the hard lessons, to do the right thing even when you're not sure what the right thing is...and to forgive yourself, over and over again, for doing everything wrong.”
Donna Ball, At Home on Ladybug Farm

“All my life, I thought I was this independent woman. I was on all the right committees, made speeches for all the right causes, traveled all over the world. I had my little part-time job, I made all my own decisions, but . . . there was always someone there to fall back on when things went bad. Funny, how after so many years of marriage you don’t think about how much you depend on the other person until . . . well, until they’re gone. And then of course there’s just the whole system in the city. Your doctor, your pharmacist, your plumber, your vet . . . there’s always someone there. You never have to find out . . . how much you can’t do.”
Donna Ball, A Year on Ladybug Farm

“Half the time your kids end up hating you for at least 5 of their teenage years[.] And don't ever expect anything so mundane as a thank you”
Donna Ball, At Home on Ladybug Farm
