This past weekend we were finally able to spend an entire day on our property! It was wonderful to get away from the city noises and get our hands dirty in our very own soil. While the plan is to locate the home in the pasture area, our current need was for a location to camp in and operate from. We found a beautiful clearing and our first chore was to cut a trail for easier access.
Once that was complete we put up some shade, carried in the water and started exploring. There are definitely areas that we want to get into, but it is going to take time to cut through the brush to get there. Anyone want to mail me a chainsaw? 🙂
Our youngest son spent the day with us and he had the time of his life (okay, he isn’t all that old yet) playing in the dirt, breaking sticks, watching daddy hack away at tree limbs and in awe at the power of his momma as she toppled a few dead trees.
Here is a short video of the day and there will definitely be more to follow!
