Well, after a pretty long hiatus, here we are again! The last year has been a huge season of change for us, including the move, but now we really feel like we are hitting our stride and are ready to start blogging again.
It has been quite a busy year that included moving, getting the kids in a new school, and leaving a church which we had attended for over a decade. All of these things were hard on all of us, but have ultimately drawn us closer together as a family. We really had to trust and rely on each other with so much change going on.
So, now we are finally feeling a little more stable, and ready to really work on some projects at the mobile home. We are planning on sharing those with you, and hope you enjoy hearing a little about us as we get them going.
The first major project is our garden! This is something we have been working really hard on, and will be uploading and posting on it as we continue the process. The ultimate goal is to produce vegetables to share with our community and bless the people around us.
Next, we will have chickens! The coop should arrive today, and we'll definitely be writing about our little cluckers as we raise them in the back yard. We really think the kids are going to love raising chickens, and enjoy the fresh eggs.
Both of these projects are a huge part of our goal to be active in our community, and live a more sustainable life. We are finding that living simply is a great way to bring a family together, and hopefully we can share some of that process with you.
