2015 has been kind to us! We had an plentiful growing season, healthy children and a happy homestead. We worked and played hard, dreamed big, accomplished lots and planned a whole bunch for 2016. We hope to ring in the new year with a green house that has been in the works for a long time, which will enable us to do so much more.

Some of our goals and aspirations are:

  1. Spend more time at home with our kids
  2. Learn a new art, craft or skill each month, starting January with sewing
  3. Improve and master our home-school skills and abilities–make everything a lesson
  4. Build and utilize our green house
  5. Build a duck habitat and finally get ducks
  6. Expand our garden beds
  7. Simplify our lives by getting rid of 20 or so things each month–starting in January
  8. Get our mushroom patch inoculated and productive
  9. Have more visitors–we love it when people want to come and play with the chickens and learn the art of homesteading!
  10. Be happy!! Live life for today–since there is no guarantee for tomorrow! 1234451_901559219885877_5168660438596806548_n
