My oldest daughter and I are reading Farmer Boy right now, it's amazing at how much I wish we could live like they did. My daughter loves how they were always together and they didn't need the grocery store. She's a girl after my own heart...she wants to marry a farmer when she grows up and have 10 kids.!! I appreciate how much hard work it took to survive back then and while I long to have a huge farm and be self sufficient I am grateful to have the option of grocery stores in case crops fail.
One of the things we're hoping to do this week is make butter. The kids would like to make cheese too, but I think you need special equipment for that?
What are you reading? Are you learning anything new on your journey?
