It seems appropriate today to look back on our year.
We've only lived on the farm 3 years but our lives have drastically changed.
This past year held some important firsts for us.
Shall we remember them together?
The first animals were born on our farm ~
12 little lambs
|Pistache ~ our first ram|
|such fun to watch them play!|
First shearing day
First son graduated from high school~
homeschooled all the way through.
First big barn ~
actually, it's an equipment shed
but I call it a barn.
First handspun project
completed from our own sheep
|Ziggy admiring the bag I made out of her fleece|
First time to butcher chickens
Wow ~ That was a big first for us!
|Jared ready to get to it.|
|Such a classic pic! Poor Jonah was not enjoying this part.|
First time our boys saw the family cotton farm in Texas.
This one was a looong time coming!

I'm sure this year will have many firsts of it's own.
Just a hint: milking goats will be one of those ;)
We look forward to continuing or life of living & learning on a hobby farm. We feel truly blessed to be able to do so!
Teach us to number our days aright,
that we may gain a heart of wisdom.
