Praise Jesus! We made it! 100 days on the homestead!! And my sister Tina’s Birthday!!! And its April Fools day!

Such a wonderful and amazing day. Lets get started! Where we began. Living in two rooms of the cottage and practically falling all over each other. To living in our trailer and each of us having our own space!

Anny works hard everyday on our homestead and is a huge help. Even watching the younger ones so we get some time just to us parents. We enjoy baking together and watching ‘The Walking Dead’ together. She is also part of the Verbena Drum Line and hoping to be in track next year. A completely different young lady!

Frankie can bake, IMG_3936  haul wood IMG_3371 and is making straight A’s! She gets to see her Dad and Grandparents on his side every other weekend. Growing up so very fast.

Our Trinity speaks incredibly clear now and can count and say most of her alphabet! Our youngest lil man can speak much clearer and count to 3. Both of our youngest can haul wood, enjoy riding in the wagon, swinging on the porch of the cottage and mom’s bubble baths!

We have had to remove mulch and roots for every inch of land we want to use. Here is the cottage yard now.IMG_4582 My sister Tina Hamons has come up twice now and she has cut down several trees,IMG_3762

and in two days removed the last coop for our new coop!

She also has made tutus for the girls, helped cook, is teaching me to sew and constantly send us new ways and ideas to help our homestead. Our first 100 days would not have been nearly as easy without her help!

Our benefactors Durby Sr and Sandra have also aided more than they can imagine. The started before we even got here. They got the land cleared.

Sandra also brought us a wonderful radio so we can play Christian music throughout our days!

Without these two very wonderful people this dream of a life would not be possible! Thank you two so very much!!
