Its amazing to me that it is December and we are outside in short sleeves! Nashville weather never fails to amaze me. We spent some time outside with the chickens today. We only have three left, but they are happy and healthy! We saved some sunflower heads to give to the chickens. They love sunflower seeds. Lexy had fun feeding it to them.IMG_0431IMG_0393IMG_0432IMG_0433IMG_0403IMG_0398I love to see my kids happy and outside!

My 3 children and I live on 14 acres in Savannah Ga. I have worked hard at turning the property into a thriving, self sufficient homestead. It has been a learning experience and a lot of hard work but its so worth it. I don't understand how our country became so consumer driven. We have lost so much of our production way of life. It is my goal to get back to basics any way that I can. My three children used be so hooked on TV, video games, computers, iphones and ipads. And while they still like those things, they now spend just as much time outside as they do inside. I hope by learning to raise chickens and rabbits, growing gardens, raising goats and riding horses and spending more time outdoors in general, my children will learn to love and appreciate a simpler way of life. I knew nothing about homesteading when I started this journey but I have learned so much and love every minute of it.
