Super Quick Update!
We have a lot of work ahead of us. It is a very old farmhouse that has not been kept up very well over the past year. Cleaning, repairing, and settling in will fill our days for the next few months. I know we will round those days out with time in the garden, sprinkler, barn, and for the little boys, in the trees!
Oh the trees!!! The property is littered with big old trees. Our lot here in the city has no trees at all. We will have a place to hang bird feeders, hammocks, and tree houses!
We will slowly be adding some farm animals too. We have two Black Australorps on the way from a dear friend thinning her flock. We are all looking forward to that first fresh egg retrieved from our very own chicken! Goats will be next, one of the boys is so eager to have a goat. He is especially keen on the idea of cheese and soap making. We are considering a pig next spring, and eventually a mini dairy cow!
Like I said, many exciting things are happening here. We are eager to get down to the business of making the farm our home. I'm sure my internet access will be interrupted soon, but I will keep my camera handy and update when I am able.
Ad majorem Dei gloriam!
