Family Time…


We had a great weekend!  We had family in from the Carolinas (two aunts and two cousins).  My aunt and cousin from SC made a huge Mexican dinner Saturday night.  We had spent the day swimming at our house then headed to Grandma’s where the girls had dinner waiting.  It was fabulous!  Sunday, we all attended church and met at Grandma’s again for dinner.  My cousin and uncle grilled hamburgers, hotdogs, and brats.  Yum!  Dh and I had to leave early to get back home.  The President of the Texel Sheep Breeders Society was on his way out to interview us for the website and newsletter.  The sheep and Hank (the llama) were on their best behavior.  My aunt also gave me a knitting lesson on Sunday.  I have already been taught to knit by my MIL, however, I needed a refresher course.  I think I might just have the hang of it now.

Last night was pizza at my uncles in town.  It’s everyone’s last night here, so we had a good time relaxing on their back deck.  It was a beautiful evening outside.  I just love being with my family!  I’ll try to post some pics soon.  I used my film camera, so hopefully the girls email me some I can post.

Hope everyone is having a wonderful week.

Adopting one child won't change the world; but for that child, the world will change.

I am the wife to my wonderful husband and joint care giver to the many animals we have acquired on our small farm here on the prairie. This is a bit about our life on our farm. We are striving for simplicity and self-sufficiency, determined to become debt-free, trying to live in tune with the natural cycles of this earth, and challenging ourselves to transition to a diet based on traditional foods. It isn't always easy, and we don't always succeed, but it is a fun learning process. Join us as we stumble through learning how to provide for ourselves, get off the treadmill, and work toward a simpler way of life.
