And the Animals Were Gone...

One of our babies from 2011
The saddest part of our homestead metamorphosis, is that we had to sell/ giveaway all of our animals, with the exception of Girl, our dog. Being in limbo for the summer was not going to allow us to keep anything. Especially when we didn't know where we were going to move.

It was not without tears that we had to decide it... Because we had many beloved animals. But we knew that we needed to be patient and wait. We knew we had to give up somethings to get answers to our many prayers.

Well, now that we are settled in our new place and getting some of those projects completed, my mind is starting to drift towards getting more animals. We are only on ONE acre here.... So that poses a but of an issue, BUT places like the Urban Homestead in Pasadena, California and many others do the same thing, with much less space than we have! So I am accepting this challenge! I am getting my list together for a chicken order and I have my heirloom seed order ready to go also! We are also prepared to get some goats in the Spring, so the boys have their 4H projects.

Homesteading is never an easy journey... But "in all labor there is profit, But idle chatter leads only to poverty." (Prov. 14:23)

Thanks for being on this journey with us!! Talk to you all again soon!!
