Chicken Tractor

My husband has turned at do-it-yourself chicken coop into a chicken tractor. Over the weekend he made a you-tube video and I thought I would share it.

Who I am...or who I'm becoming

If someone would have told me five years ago my husband and I would be embarking on homeschooling our kids I would have been shocked. If someone would have said we'd be gardening, raising chickens and making some of our own household items--I wouldn't have believed them.

Yet, here we are. This is our second season of raising chickens and our third year of gardening Over the last few months, I have been making our own laundry detergent and glass cleaner. We've also been moving towards a more organic diet (or at least really trying too). And now we've decided to homeschooling...just the more and more I read about Common Core the less I want to do with it.

Right now we are in the information gathering stage. As far as the garden, we already have the potatoes and onions in the ground! I am so excited! We love potatoes, I am hoping to start adding more sweet potatoes to our diet since I know they are healthier for us.

Not much more right now. I should get back to reading.
