AJ, We're definately all in this together. I'm not sure I'm quite ready to turn BJ loose with power tools just yet though. It's sad that folks don't help each other like they used to. We'll just keep plugging away and hope everything gets done eventually. Thanks for reading! Gidget, Thank you for your compliments. Glad to have you reading! Sheila, Usually the kids get out in early June. I'm not sure why they start so early. Thanks for reading! Kevin, Your right Madison is tough. She'll be fine I just have to make sure she knows she has to go. They start back next week so I'm already dreading it. Thanks for reading! Bethany, Thanks for the compliments. I hope all your dreams come true. I wish everyone could have this lifestyle. It will definately be a lot of work, but great rewards. Thanks for reading! Keith, You be careful on that 4 wheeler! Supposed to have chickens around 1-08! Jerry, Glad to have you reading. Feel free to put a link in here to your friends blogs. Traci, Thanks for the info. I'll look for some. The local vet always wants to use DMSO gel. Lately we've been using generic Neosporin. Thanks for reading! Hurricane teen,

You write very well, by the way. My step dad's dream has been to have a farm, having spent half of his life on one himself growing up (he has retired) and he is in the process of obtaining a 40 acre working farm with two houses on it. Me and my two boys plan on moving into the second home and helping out. We are all looking forward to it and have started making plans and reading lots of books. We are planning on having cattle, chickens, goats, and many gardens which will be filled with heirloom fruits and veggies (if we are successful) that we will grow organically. It is going to be refreshing - hard work, but so fulfilling. Thank you for sharing your farming life with the rest of us. It's something that I look forward to continue reading. Sincerely, Me :) Hi ~

Especially if you can get Garrett and Kaylie to talk up how much fun it is to go to school, and all the friends they have that they only see there. Of course there is always the big kids go to school and the little ones go to daycare approach. Enjoy the next couple of weeks with the kids, they will fly by!

I enjoy reading your blog very much. Your words are inspiring me to continue cultivating our family's dreams. It's funny about the snail. Our kids found one this week too, only, not knowing land snails were different from aquarium snails, I unfortunately fed it to our goldfish. I've got to remember to research these things first!

I can think of no other lifestyle that brings the best out of a person than living and working on land. The work has to be done by someone. Unless you are willing to hire out (who can afford to do that all the time?), then you or someone in the family are the "someone." I also find that, since moving to a piece of property, my sense of "in this thing together so let's get 'er done" has been a big motivating factor in what I'm willing to take on or try to do. The consequence is that I feel like I'm really contributing and becoming stronger and more confident. Nothing like using a nail-gun to give a woman a little confidence. Heh.

I'm sure you'll find a way to make it work whatever you decide. Have a good week! I wish you well on your “chicken decision-making.” I’m sure you’ll find a way to make it work whatever you decide.
