This year, we are making actual progress toward moving out there and living. The boys are so excited about living out on our land.
First, we built a fence.
Actually, we paid Andy Permenter to build us a fence. I think the fence that Andy built is better than any fence that Dave and I would build.
Then we bought a couple of cows . . . all black cows . . . black Angus cows . . . Let me introduce you to Hamburger and Steak, our new cows.
Just joking about the names. I'm sorta getting attached to the cows. I like the cows. The big cow is "expecting."
I'm not too sure about this idea of buying a pregnant cow. We don't know anything about cows and then to buy one that's "with calf" probably wasn't a good idea. But Dave thinks it will be no big deal. I think he thinks Nature will take its course in the matter, and we won't have any problems. We'll see.
So . . . land + fence + cows = Ferrell Farm :)
We also bought a tractor - no lie! Here is Dave hauling a big limb from a fallen tree.
Could we be more like Green Acres?!?
As of April 7th we have . . .
Electricity! TaDa! I was so excited I had to take a picture. I think Chuck Cotton thought I was nuts when I told him I took a picture of the electric pole. But this means we are one step closer to building our country home. Notice I got the cows in the picture too.
Zach and Alex will have to adjust to living in the country . . .
but Shane will grow up only knowing about country life.
I'm very excited about this change in our lives. I know the boys are going to love living out in the country. I just hope I'm able to adjust to living 7 miles from Tems!
Maybe I should name our little farm - Green Acres! That's how I feel it's going to be like for me living out there. I have never lived anywhere but in town.
Goodbye city life! Green Acres we are here!
