• Rereading this awesome book to get some ideas on how to deal with our erosion issues.  Central Texas has gotten HAMMERED with rain and storms lately and our 7 acres is starting to look painful.
.
Gotta slow, spread, and HARVEST the rain water run off!!!
.
So back to the book, I absolutely love this book by Brad Lancaster.  Brad living out in Arizona knows Drylands for sure!  And his story telling and techniques are second to none.
.
plus..... SO MANY PICTURES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
.
Oh and PS, @bettertogetherwife is CRYING in the background while watching @rebekah.rhodes birthday video by @thejustinrhodesshow 🤣🤣

  • There is nothing like this moment.  This is a moment that @bettertogetherwife And I have waited for since 2015, when we purchased our 7 acres in central Texas.
.
Chickens on GRASS!!!
.
These are the 17 Easter Egger chickens that we hatched ourselves.  Well, the incubator did most of the work (to be honest). .
Now let’s just pray that they aren’t all roosters!!! 🤣🤣 🐥🐔🐓 .

  • Foraging food straight from your own property.  This is something I always knew was possible, but didn’t know what it would be like the first time.
.
For one I didn’t think that the kids would last so long, and two....well of course I didn’t think that Finley would love dewberries so much!
.
But once again it reminded me that this life, this slower country life homeschooling our kids is the life for us.  And if it’s something that you dream of, please know that if we can do it, YOU CAN TOO.

  • Oh wow this boy gives us so much joy and is sooooo much work!  But he has taught us our true selves.  When we are in a bad mood or having a bad moment with the kiddos he lets us know by roughhousing and chewing up EVERYTHING. .
But when we are calm, diligent, on schedule with a daily routine he THRIVES!!! And so does our family.  And so does our homestead. .
Thank you Chip for being our families emotional thermometer!
