Our lives
We just moved to our little spot of heaven in early May. We are renting but it is very reasonable plus our children are the 6th generation to live on this land.

We live 1/2 mile from my brother-in-law. It is a blessing to have his expereience and advice when needed.
We are 6 miles from my mother-in-law which is excellent for the kids. Having a Grandma around frequently is a new, wonderful expereince for the kids. They go to Grandmas to watch Disney channel, eat donuts, and walk to the pool or library.

We have two kids Anna 11 and Ian 7. We have homeschooled them since they were old enough to listen to us read. We were living in a large city so this is quite a change. The kids and I love animals and if money and space permitted we would have lots and lots.

We have a large 40x90 foot garden plus an additional area with 24 watermelon plants (our landlord told us this was the first place she tried watermelon).

We have revamped the grainery to hold bunnies and their food for the winter. The kids and I built an outside run for them. We currently have 5 pets bunnies living in there. Anna hopes to breed two of them for babies to sell but we have to find a few males first.

We have fixed a terrible bowing wall in the chicken coop. Some windows were out in the coop so I replaced them with chicken wire but will probably put hardware cloth over to further protect our babies. I also used expanding foam to fill any holes. We have fox, coyote, skunk and dog wishing to eat chicken so we put up a strand of red Christmas lights that blink all night and a loud radio. We have rooster and hen for Rhode Island Red, Black Cochin, Old English Spangled Bantam, Barred Cochin. We also have a Buff Cochin hen and Black-Sex Link hens.

We have a Boxer/Border Collie mix dog who is about 5 months old and teething on EVERYTHING.

We also have 4 box turtles and 2 cats that live indoors. We also have our temporary pets such as snakes, lizards and toads.

So that's our life in a nutshell.

Up next is showing bunnies and chickens at fair. Join us as we learn and grow
