Good bye city life! Our family designed and built an industrial but old fashioned farmhouse on nine acres. Now we are building our homestead ~ or is it building us? Grab your boots and join us on our journey to country living.

Cute & Cuddly

The lambs are enjoying the beautiful weather we are having.
And we are enjoying cute & cuddly lambs!

Daylily

They are such fun to hold...

Jared & Daffodil

and to watch.

Pistache & Petunia
You can definitely tell he is lilac in the sun.
(Lilac is a special grayish color. Jacob people really like lilac.)

Zinnia (shy but so sweet)

Daffodil is a "look at me girl".


The mommas are watchful too.
They keep their babies close and don't let the others near them.


Last night we got 10 glorious hours of sleep.  Ok, my sweet husband got dressed and checked on them once in the night (thanks, honey!).  After many sleepless nights, it was so nice.



Bunny still looks like she could lamb anytime. Then we will have a break for a few weeks until the three first timers give birth. (we think!)
