This is a blog about the trials and triumphs of a not so domestic diva. I have decided to return to a simpler time and begin baking my own breads, grinding my own wheat, canning, gardening, etc...Because I am less then... well, let's say skilled, in all the above mentioned areas, I have a feeling this could get very entertaining! At the very least sticky and messy! I am also the homeschooling mother of three, so you know I am going to be blogging about the trials and triumphs of that too!

Our New Barnyard Friend
Meet Lily. She is my daughter's new Nigerian Dwarf doe. We adore our goats. They are simply some of the sweetest animals God ever created. What a wonderful mommy my daughter is being. Lily has two very good uncles as well. I am convinced the responsibilty of caring for an animal is an experience for a child that is unmatched in any other form. My children feed and water all the animals each morning. They care for goats, chickens, bunnies, and dogs. They do a fabulous job and have thrived with the added responsibility. Moving out to the farm over a year ago was a move we will never regret. We have enjoyed the wide open spaces, the freedom our children have to be kids, and the ability to have a hobby farm. What a blessing it has been.
